I would say...Integration.

Getting everything into place and having it work well. The US continually make changes (some minor, some not) to their carriers, learn what you liked about the last one, and what you didn't like...and try and fix all the problems on the next one.

China may have jets, radars, people, missiles, the powerplant, etc...the list keeps going on and on, but the hardest thing is putting them all together to work in conjunction with eachother seemlessly.

I would say, the hardest part is not building a Carrier itself, but Diplomacy between china and her neighbouring nations.

Imagine the backlash of China having its own carrier group. South Korean, Japan would feel threatened, may just spark an Arms Race and destablize Asia.

Taiwan( No its not a country, LOL) would feel most threatened. The probably buy more wares from the US, this would likely piss off Beijing. Rising tensions.

Before China jump into the Aircraft carrier bandwagon, she needs to play a certain assurance with her neighbours. Or else, a Tension high Asia is bad for everyone.

Maybe China should "Out Source" the really difficult parts of an Air Craft Carrier to build ...... to the US. We're always complaining how the US is out sourcing jobs to China and India ...... maybe we can get a few jobs back to the States.
