In the pre-launch stage of readiness is WJ-20 engine, developed specifically for cargo transport planes.
Maximum speed Y-30 will be within 600-700 km / h, depending on the configuration. Flight distance determined 6000-7000 km with optimal payload.
According to the schedule of works on designing and testing of the aircraft, the first flight scheduled after 2020 years.
Shanxi Aircraft Company specializing in the design of large, transport planes is working to create a model Y-9, which is in the same class as the Y-30.
The fuselage of Y-30 will be wider than the Y-8, Y-9-130 and C at the request of military specialists and installation conditions turboprop engines, the aircraft will be widely used in the market for civilian traffic.
