Village to create pilot training base
Huaxi the richest village in China have announced plans to buy 20 aircraft to train pilots and for tourism, after the government allowed low altitude airspace for private planes. Huaxi plans to have its own fleet of private planes in the next five years with the aim of establishing a pilot training base in their village.
The village have waited for the government to open up the low altitude airspace for a long time, and already planned for two helicopters to be flown by mid December. In a circular issued by the State Council and Central Military Commission they open part of its low altitude airspace in efforts to promote the country aviation sector. The two helicopters bought by Huaxi costs 90 million yuan and have already conducted trial tourist flights. These type of tourist flights will help promote the village tourist industry and attract more wealthy tourists, visitors can get ride the helicopters for 300 to 500 yuan.
The only task remaining is for the village to train enough pilots since it is still an untapped market for pilot training. Under the pilot training program the village will train at least 100 pilots then they will allow the pilots to ply planes and helicopters in different parts of the country.
