I.Current State

Jiangxi is the birthplace of the first plane of People's Republic of China. Through 60 years of development, the aviation sector in Jiangxi features powerful capacity in overall design, experimental verification, advanced manufacturing and assembly and boasts major R&D and manufacturing bases of training planes, UAV, general-purpose planes and helicopters, ranking fourth in industrial scale nationwide. There are 8 complete machine manufacturers including AVIC Hongdu Aviation Industry Group, Changhe Aircraft Industries Group, BGAC Jiangxi Helicopter, Jiangxi Deli Helicopter, BaiLongMa Aviation Technology, Jiangxi Guanyi Aero as well as 34 supporting manufacturers including Hongdu Commercial Aircraft and Jingdezhen Aviation Forging and Casting Company. Meantime there are a number of aviation research institutes and testing bases including China Helicopter Research and Development Institute, Hongdu Aircraft Research and Development Institute and Nanchang Hangkong University. In 2017, the aviation sector in Jiangxi generated CNY 74.013 billion in prime operating revenue, up by 21.7% from the previous year.

II. Development Goals

Jiangxi would, in accordance with the development principle of grand aviation, strive to develop the manufacturing capacity and capability of fuselage and components of training planes, helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and civil aircraft and build a coordinated industrial network integrating aviation manufacturing, civil aviation transportation, general aviation and airport economy. Prime operating revenue of aviation manufacturing is aimed to total CNY 100 billion in 2020.

III. Industrial Distribution

As for training planes, to build a world-class FTS R&D, manufacturing and service base by relying on leading enterprises like Hongdu Aviation Industry Group, gearing to the needs of both domestic and international market, exploring the development trends of flying training and improving product categories.
