China's 65 General Aviation Companies Receive 390 Million Yuan in Subsidies from CAAC in 2013



Recently, Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has released its subsidy policy for general aviation in 2013, which plans to provide subsidies amounting to 390 million yuan to 65 domestic general aviation companies this year. These subsidies will be effective in helping these general aviation companies cope with financial pressures, inspiring gumption and energy in the industry and promoting the substantial development of the nation’s general aviation fleet.

General aviation, or GA, is an important component of civil aviation. As such, it is of great importance to develop general aviation to accommodate increasing domestic demands by providing basic aviation services and constructing a comprehensive transportation system. However, by looking at the weak foundation, sparse investment and lack of attention toward China's GA industry, it is obvious that it falls badly behind its commercial counterparts in the nation’s aviation industry. In order to provide support to the general aviation industry, in December 2012 the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), together with the Ministry of Finance of the People's Republic of China, formulated the Interim Measures for the Management of the Special Fund for the General Aviation Development, a plan designed to allocate special funds from the Civil Aviation Development Fund to support the operations of general aviation enterprises, which include pilot training, maintenance of general facilities, and so on.

The CAAC will continue to improve upon the existing general aviation subsidy plan, and will frequently supplement and revise the policy to continually improve it over time. The CAAC will also provide guidance and support to different levels of GA operations to ensure the constant and healthy development of the industry.
