"This is the first large unmanned transport aircraft produced in accordance with the guidelines of the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China," the commentator stressed.

The aircraft is a single-engine two-seat monoplane and, according to Chinese media, belongs to the class of light sports aircraft. It is also intended for flight training.
