When the C919, China's indigenous long-haul airliner, successfully completed its maiden flight in May 2017, officials were quick to announce that the country was edging closer to clinching the "crown jewels" of the modern manufacturing industry: aircraft.

The one-hour-20-minute flight may only have taken five crew members about 200km from Shanghai and back, but it also carried the huge weight of a nation's ambition to be a major player in the global aviation industry.

China's aviation market is expected to overtake the US as the world's largest by 2022, and the country is estimated to need over 7,000 planes in the next 20 years. Being able to make its own would not only help disentangle Beijing from the political complications of having to deal with the global manufacturing duopoly of Boeing and Airbus, but would also be a statement that it had the technological prowess to match its economic might.

"Building an aircraft brings together all the major disciplines in engineering. I think that's why it's so important to China. It's the top of the mountain as far as complexity. That's why it's so strategic," said Kevin Michaels, managing director of AeroDynamic Advisory, an aerospace and aviation consultancy.

"China is playing the long game, it's not about the 2020s. China is looking at the next 20, 30 or 40 years."
