The State of Aviation in China

Couldn’t have said it better myself:

From The Economist:

Open skies are needed if China wants its aviation industry to thrive

“WE NEED policy reform,” declared one speaker after another at a conference in Beijing last month. They were not talking about property rights, environmental policy or pensions, but about airspace. China has a booming civil-aviation industry but is lagging behind in the field of “general aviation”—in other words, allowing things other than commercial airliners and military aircraft into the skies. General aviation covers crop dusters, corporate jets, single-engine training aircraft and cargo aircraft, among other things. Although civil aviation accounts for the bulk of air passengers worldwide, general aviation accounts for most of the flights.

Visit the Economist site and read more. The article is highly accurate and relevant!
