Aviation park ready for take-off

CHINA'S aviation regulator has approved a pilot scheme for the country's first general aviation industrial park in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, sources said yesterday.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China has given approval for the Pucheng industrial park in Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi, to open low-altitude airspace for general aviation between an airport and more than five scenic spots.

Aircraft will carry visitors to tour scenic spots in 2010, said Jin Qiansheng, head of Xi'an Yanliang national aviation hi-tech industrial base. But he gave no exact timetable.

Jin said the pilot program could spark policy changes for flying at low altitudes and give a strong boost to the general aviation market in China.
