At the press conference, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman, Yang Yujun spoke about the national low-altitude airspace management reform stating that China is ready to implement plans to further release control of the country’s low-altitude airspace, which will open a new chapter for general aviation in the country.
During the conference, Mr. Yujun said, “In recent years, military and civil air traffic controllers have cooperated on pilot programs to reform the management of our low-altitude airspace. This is aimed to improve the efficiency of airspace usage, categorizing zones, simplify the approval procedures, strengthen the operational management, promote the general aviation career development and to ensure flight safety.”
The recent national air traffic management committee will assemble a “carding” system and deploy fully open low altitude airspace management reform. Mr. Yujun said, “In the future with the low-altitude airspace management reform expanding, China’s general aviation industry will achieve greater development.”
