Inaugural U.S. – China General Aviation Business Conference Scheduled for March 25-31

Many officials from China who are tasked with growing that country’s burgeoning general aviation market will attend this event


China is poised to become one of the largest markets in the world for general aviation. The country’s growing wealth, huge population, dynamic economy, and vast size makes it fertile ground for the unique travel solutions provided by general and business aviation. 


China for the first time has moved towards loosening its restrictions on general aviation, especially with the latest announcement of the opening of newly increased flying area of 200- kilometer radius (108 nautical or 125 statute miles). The Chinese Government has also announced ambitious plans to take advantage of the economic and job creation opportunities that general aviation represents. 


“This is a first opportunity for U.S.-based companies to meet the people in China who are responsible to a great extent to grow the aviation business in China,” said Dr. Yuanyang Gao Director, General Aviation Industry Research Center, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Deputy Secretary General, AOPA-China. “And represents an opportunity for U.S. companies to share their expertise in an area that is new to China––general aviation.”


If China is to grow its general aviation industry, it literally needs assistance with everything involved in the infrastructure and the supply chain. The U.S. China General Aviation Business Conference will take place from March 25 – 31 in Southern California and already has confirmed the participation of more than 30 representatives from Chinese Government agencies, investment, airport operations, and academia who have been tasked with growing that country’s general and business aviation sector.


There are two main opportunities for U.S. Companies to interact with Chinese attendees: the conference day at the Embassy Suites in Brea, Calif. on March 27 and the Aviation Expo at Threshold Aviation at Chino Airport, Calif. on March 28.


Threshold is very pleased to be hosting this important event and we look forward to having many of our friends and other stake-holders in the industry attend and exhibit, to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to develop business ties with the Chinese people in aviation.” Said Mark DiLullo, Founder and CEO of Threshold Aviation.
