Recently, China has continuously attacked markets, from steel to smartphones.

In June 2013, Myanmar Airways flight number 309 went off the rails in Kawthaung (Myanmar) and crashed into a wall.

On the same day, another MA60 crashed in Kupang (Indonesia), injuring 5 people.

An MA60 abandoned after an incident in Myanmar.

An investigation by the Wall Street Journal showed that the MA60 – the first aircraft produced by China, had problems with landing gear, brakes and steering.

The MA60 series has a history dating back to 1966, when Xi’an Aircraft Industry began producing the Y-7, a variant of a Soviet turboprop.

In the 80s, a Chinese jet aircraft was licensed by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and exported to many places around the world.

In 2002, a Wuhan Airlines MA60 crashed while landing, Xinhua said.

China also decided to shift to exporting MA60, starting with the Zimbabwean market in 2005. However, in 2009, MA60 in the Philippines twice caused runway overshoot incidents.

Since then, China has begun to discover problems with the MA60’s hydraulic system.

According to bilateral agreements, CAAC must send all safety instructions in English to partners.

Indonesian officials said they had only received three instructions.

In 2013, New Zealand issued a warning about traveling by MA60 to Tonga, a popular tourist destination for New Zealanders, and declared that it was not responsible for any risks if people continued to use MA60.

To date, Xi’an has produced 101 MA60s and is working on a more complete version – MA600.

China's dream of flying is shattered

C919 – another Chinese-made aircraft.

CAAC publishes reports on incidents related to domestic flight safety from 2008 to 2010 on its website.

WSJ said Xi’an Aircraft Industry – the manufacturer of the MA60 refused to comment on the plane’s problems.

In addition to the MA60, China has two other types of domestically produced aircraft.

The FAA said it has no intention of certifying the ARJ21 unless it is upgraded to Western standards.
