2nd Annual Aviation Training Congress – Xi’an, Shanxi, China - Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

The 2nd annual aviation training congress China will be held on Oct 18-19 2013 in Xi’an, Shanxi, China. As a part of China International General Aviation Convention 2013 – China’s No.1 and largest General aviation platform, hosted by CAAC and supported by key aviation authorities. It is the only international event on the aviation training market in China.

The relevant departments of China released a circular announcing the decision to intensify the reform of China’s low altitude airspace in November of 2010. The policy gives a huge opportunity to the development of China’s aviation industry.

China’s fast growing general aviation sector boosts the positive outlook on aviation education and training business in China. The strong interest and huge potential in business and private flying also holds clear promise.

The training for business flying, commercial flying air tours and private pilot licenses is becoming increasingly popular in China. However the qualified personnel are far from enough to meet the market demand in the coming years. Aviation training has been a matter of great urgency in China with the CAAC attaching great importance to this event.

The event brochures and details can be seen here.
