The continuous-loop wind tunnel will feature a test chamber capable of accommodating models up to 2.42.4 m in section and will simulate velocities between Mach 0.3 and Mach 1.6.

The project was approved in 2012 and is the largest single investment project approved by China's National Defense Science and Technology Bureau, reflecting its status as a fundamental, strategic facility for the development of the country's aviation industry.
