Expert advises China to change Aircraft Engines Development Road

 Admiral Yin Zhuo of the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), member of the Expert Advisory Committee for Military Informationization of the PLA and member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), proposed for an increase in the national investment in military industry enterprises including the aviation industry. He said, “We have formed an "all-follow-the-models" way of thinking for a long time, and this approach has delayed a lot of valuable researches and manufactures. The military industry serves as an important support to China's high-end manufacturing industry and some basic scientific experiments and researches cannot just follow the models.

Yin Zhuo stated basic researches may be money-consuming in the short term, but it is beneficial to the development of the industry in the long run.
The engine industry is a critical field for the development of the aviation industry. Speaking of the development of the aviation engine industry, Yin Zhuo believes that aviation engines and those products related to it such as gas turbines and large diesel engines should be made into shelf products. After the shelf products are available, the engine can be chosen for a specific model as required, or can be modified prior to usage. Making engines into shelf products will considerably shorten the research and development cycle of a model.
Yin Zhuo believes that in comparison with other industries, independent innovation is more important to military enterprises. “Take the aerospace and the aviation for a comparison. Since we are unable to purchase aerospace technologies, we can only rely on our own research and development. As a result, the independent research and development in the aerospace field has been doing much better.”
“China is a big country and its generation of combat power cannot depend on purchasing.” said Yin Zhuo, “This is a crucial issue relating to our national security. It has to be solved by relying on independent innovation.
