  1. Definition of Flight Camp
    1. What is a Flight Camp?

In simple terms, a flight camp is a place where people who love sports aviation come to gather.

  1. Flight Camp Layout
    1. Four Requirements

The layout of the camp must meet the following four         requirements

      1. Local Economy Development Needs
      2. Sports Industry Development Needs
      3. Tourism Industry Development Needs
      4. Youth Aviation Literacy Needs
    1. Three Principles
      1. Low altitude space requires economic development, a comprehensive aviation camp plan should be adapted to local economic development and the status quo, as the local general aviation industry foothold.
      2. Near scenic areas, to meet the development needs of the tourism industry, aviation camp construction should be close to scenic sports, so that each resort has to offer 2-3 activities of flight camp nearby.
      3. Close to the literacy needs of the youth, young students are currently involved in a number of sports aviation model groups. In the planning stages the National aviation camp should establish a “government guidance, market operation, enterprises and social participation.”
    2. Category of Flight Camps
      1. Class A: According to the principles of sports aviation development, six regional flight camps will be built and funded by the National Sports Administrative Department and ASFC. The planning and construction of a comprehensive line of aviation camp, is aimed to establish a template for future camps.
      2. Class B: ASFC and the respective national authorities will cooperate together work to develop aviation camps. Local GA companies will work with national authorities to handle the functional improvements and operations.
      3. Class C: Under the guidance and planning of ASFC, entirely by the enterprises according to their own conditions for the establishment of air sports activities to meet the basic conditions of the flight camp

    3. Future Planning
      1. 20,000 flight camps will be built in the next 10-15 years
      2. Build China’s 200km Sports Aviation Flight Range(currently there are 50 flight camps in place)
