——"Big plane, Big dream" say the Chinese and foreign students of the social practice team from Northwestern Polytechnical University.
Since July 12, 17 members of the social practice team have traveled to Shanghai, Jiaxing, and Yanliang of Xi’an, to learn about the development history of China's civil aircraft, and research the processes of the latest large aircraft.
"Our group made the farthest plane!", said Kikolay Kim, a student from Uzbekistan. At the launching ceremony, Chinese and foreign students used their professional knowledge and own interests to jointly complete the production of aircraft models and paper aircraft. With a small plane filled with hopes for the future, the practice team members set out to explore bigger dreams.
The team members went to visit the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd. They learned about the development process of the Shanghai Y-10, visited the C919 avionics laboratory and the ARJ21 assembly line.
The team members also visited the Aviation Science and Technology Museum in Yanliang, China Aviation City, and learned about the history of the world’s and China’s aviation development. In AVIC Xi’an Aircraft Industry Group Company Ltd.’s quick response center, they gained an in-depth understanding of the operation of the domestic "Modern Ark" aircraft, which covers 4 continents and 20 countries. Chinese manufacturing has indeed promoted the economy of countries along the Belt and Road.
The team members also came to the Shanghai Museum. Foreign students enjoyed learning about Chinese history and civilization with the help of Chinese students. They saw treasures ranging from pieces of bronze to Tang Tri-Color Glazed Ceramics, from blue and white porcelain to poetry, and explored the long history of the Chinese nation and the wisdom and diligence of the Chinese people.
