Chinese AG600 amphibious aircraft took off for the first time from the surface of the sea

Chinese amphibious aircraft AG600 "Jilong" made the first takeoff from the surface of the sea. The plane was tested on July 26 and was recognized as successful, CGTN reports.


The aircraft was reportedly tested in the Yellow Sea off the coast of Qingdao in Shandong province. The plane took off for the first time from the sea surface, but landed at a ground airfield. In total, the AG600 spent 31 minutes in the air.

Note that AG600 has already been tested on water, but all passed tests were carried out in Hubei province in a reservoir on the Changhe River, i.e. in fresh water. The started tests at sea should provide developers with data on the impact of the aggressive marine environment on the airframe of the aircraft, its components and assemblies. In addition, the aircraft's controllability will be tested in various sea conditions.


The Chinese Jilong amphibious aircraft (AG600) has been under development since 2009. Flight tests began in 2017, water tests - from 2018.

The aircraft is designed to extinguish fires and conduct rescue operations on the water. It is equipped with four turboprop engines, is able to stay in the air for up to 12 hours. The maximum take-off weight of the AG600 is 53,5 tons, the hull length is 39,3 meters, the wingspan is 38,8 meters, and the maximum flight range is 4,5 thousand kilometers. Today it is the largest amphibious aircraft not only in China, but also throughout the world.

        Nice plane.
        The Chinese need a plane - they did it.

        Well done. good

        And screaming that the Chinese have stolen everything, let me remind you that Vissarionich ordered Tupolev to copy the American B-29.

        The first Soviet trucks were American cars.

        The first jet engine is English.

        It is important what happened next and what is in the present.

    We sold all the Soviet developments and here you are, another breakthrough. When will China present something like aviation and shipbuilding that was not in the USSR and Russia? I clarify - superior in all respects, so that the level of the 21st century + is direct.

      Gravitsapu, or what? Or to land people on Mars? They created the foundation - industry, science, personnel. Now the results have gone. By the way, our MC-21 already has a decent cheap Chinese competitor C919. And they really have a chance to slightly squeeze the market from a couple of Boeing Airbus.

        The USSR could do all this. China is far advanced in industry, still a factory in the world. By supplying some product even to the domestic market, their factories will have orders of millions. Therefore, the cost of analogs will always be lower, although quality is a question. But what did they create their own? For example, some aircraft above the level of Boeing and Soviet aircraft, a breakthrough in technology or shipbuilding, space. Is there a breakthrough anywhere? The USSR launched the first satellite, sent a man into space. Created a great army. He created a technique that could be repaired with a hammer and footcloth, could work for decades. We built houses like that and much more. But the USSR did not have the technologies of today. Didn't have the same access to the world economy. Therefore, if China does something really great and unique, something that the USSR and Russia could not do, then I will shake hands with the Asian workaholic, but for now these are all handicrafts according to drawings from 20 years ago. All this was created by people from the USSR, not by the Chinese.

          height - 24 meters
          wingspan - 98 meters
          weight - 136 tons
          maximum cargo weight - 59 tons
          maximum number of passengers - 700 people

    The Chinese are great, it is indisputable, without actually having experience, to make an aircraft of this size. The contours-bends of the hull only when the plane is on the water are a little unusual ... they remind a pregnant bleak. It is quite a competitor to the Be-200, if the price is similar and the Chinese quickly put it on stream. With our harnesses, Berievites can fly past the market.
