While civil aviation is enjoying tremendous growth in China, general aviation is lagging behind. General aviation started in China in 1951, but 56 years later, it is still in its infancy.


The Flight Standard Department of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) held the Air Aircraft Evaluation Group(AEG)working symposium from June 11-14. The symposium invited five experts from the FAA Seattle AEG Office and the Long Beach AEG Office. They introduced the content and experiences of FAA on aircraft evaluation. During the meeting, the problems related to the ARJ21 new regional jet AEG work were discussed. Attendees were representatives from the CAAC Flight Standard Department, CAAC Center of Aviation Safety Technology; all regional administrations of CAAC; and manufacturers of ARJ21, AVIC 1 Commercial Aircraft Co., and the First Aircraft Institute of AVIC 1. FAA experts introduced the content of FAA on the organization structure and function areas of AEG. They also discussed the detailed main works of AEG, including three commissions and their compositions, responsibility, and working methods. Participants discussed with FAA experts the practical problems in the ARJ21 new regional jet AEG work. Because the ARJ21 jet is the first to complete and develop AEG evaluation work, many problems were dealt with in the practical work.
