The pilots selected for the test pilot program fly the air force’s newest planes in the movie Born To Fly. Shanghai Tingdong Film Industry
Get ready to witness the amazing development of China’s air force this May!
Born to Fly was released in China on April 28. The movie follows a group of air force pilots testing the newest generation of China’s flying technology. They must first undergo a difficult testing process to see if they have what it takes to be involved in dangerous research. Once selected, they test the new planes to their limits, facing the many risks involved in experimental technology.
The value of this hard work is clear. By the end of the movie, China’s advanced air force is able to outwit and speed past its opponents, using their newly developed jets to show their newfound power.
The J-20 fighter jet, representing the most advanced technological achievements of China, has been a superstar since it was first seen flying in 2016. Born to Fly provides everyone with a 360-degree ultra-close view of the J-20. This is the first movie in history to feature a real J-20 aircraft. As the movie follows the test pilot’s view, the audience is given a look at this national treasure from all angles. The beauty of J-20 presented in the movie arouses patriotism among the Chinese audience.
The difference between generations of pilots is also seen on-screen. Although equally brave, younger generations have a better understanding of the aircraft technology. The main character’s willingness to use his engineering and English skills to learn about aircraft from all over the world stands out as an inspirational part of the movie.
