The construction of the Chinese complex in Huandikun was launched in 2008 and completed by 2013, although the first take-off of the prototype of the J-15 carrier-based fighter from the springboard of the complex took place in January of 2012. On the published satellite image of the complex, it can be seen that the complex has two runways, one of which has two blocks of starting springboards, and the other has two blocks of aerofinishers. The outlines of one of the springboard blocks imitate the flight deck of the first Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning (the former Soviet Varyag). At the Huandikun airfield, 24 built individual hangars for J-15 aircraft, as well as three large hangars with 36 sizes on 55 meters are visible.
In addition to this complex in Huanedikun, a ground complex with a springboard launch unit is available in the PRC at the airfield of the Chinese flight test center CTFE in Xian-Yanlan (Shanxi province). It was there that the flight tests, including those with a springboard start, and the prototypes of the J-15 fighter were held. However, in the CTFE there is no aerofinisers block.
