Made-in-China Jumbo by 2020

China has announced it is on track to produce its own large aircraft by 2020 to ensure a good chunk of its huge spending in aviation stays in the country. China is currently carrying out a five-year plan to buy 500 jets and build 48 airports. By 2025, it will spend hundreds of billions more to buy some 2,230 planes.
