Wang Zhiqing, deputy director with the Civil Aviation Administration of China, disclosed at the opening ceremony of ABACE 2015 on April 14 that Shangyang, Hainan and one city in West China have opened their low-altitude airspace below 1000 meters for trial operation to develop the nation's general aviation industry and to meet the rising general aviation demands.

"China so far has 211 business and private jets operated by some 24 companies, or a 19 percent increase compared with last year," Mr. Wang said so at the opening ceremony of ABACE 2015.

“The landing of a plane involves a series of issues such as airspace, plane slot and ground maintenance. Thus the development of general aviation industry couldn’t be accomplished in one action.” He also added that the Civil Aviation Administration of China will issue general aviation approval and management regulations, fully release general aviation approval authority, and an industry management information system will also be put into use this year.

Luxun, deputy general manager of Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aviation Service Company, believes China’s business aviation market is transforming from investment drive to consumption growth. It is inevitable that the growth is slowing down, but the market is more reasonable with a broader prospect.
