The Z-20, China's medium lift utility helicopter, has reportedly made its first flight on Monday at an airport in China's Northeast region, according to pictures uploaded by Net users onto, one of the largest military forums in China.

China has been in need of a medium utility helicopter and the homemade Z-20, believed to have a capacity of 10 tons, will fulfill the demand.

Judging from the picture uploaded by Net users, the Z-20 is similar to the US produced Black Hawk, which the People's Liberation Army has been using for nearly 30 years.
