China's large amphibious aircraft AG600 last Saturday successfully conducted its first glide test in Zhuhai, Guangdong, as it is preparing for its maiden flight.

我国大型水陆两栖飞机AG600于上周六在广东省珠海市成功进行了首次地面滑行试验,为首飞奠定了基础。

Other tests and check-ups are under way, according to the China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Co (CAIGA).

中航通用飞机有限责任公司表示,其他的测试和检查正在开展中。

Designed to be the world's largest amphibious aircraft, the 37-m AG600, with a wingspan of 38.8 m, can collect 12 tons of water in 20 seconds, and transport up to 370 tons of water on a single tank of fuel.

AG600是世界最大水陆两栖飞机。其机身长37米,翼展38.8米。20秒内可汲水12吨,一次加油可投放的最大水量为370吨。

With excellent maneuverability and a relatively wide search scope range, the AG600 will be mainly used for maritime rescue, forest fire fighting, marine environment monitoring and protection.

因其优异的可操作性和相对宽阔的搜寻范围,AG600将主要应用于海上搜救、森林灭火,以及海洋环境监测与保护。

CAIGA said in March that AG600 would embark on its maiden flight over land in late May and on water in the second half of 2017.

中航通用飞机有限责任公司曾于3月表示,AG600将于5月底进行陆地首飞,今年下半年测试水上起飞。
