J-20 may begin small-scale production in 2017

The J-20, China's first fifth-generation stealth fighter, may enter production on a small scale in 2017, after the completion of the aircraft's test flights.
The development of Chinese stealth fighters has become more mature. It took a year for the second prototype of the J-20 to complete its test flight after the first one, however, it took the 2012 prototype only four months to complete this procedure after the third aircraft–bearing the serial number 2011–completed a test flight.
If between three and four J-20 prototypes are able to conduct test flights together this year, the J-20 may begin its production on a small scale by 2017.
