For a long time, problems such as unscientific low-altitude airspace management mode and complicated general aviation flight procedures have severely restricted the development of the general aviation industry.

  More than 90% of the low-altitude flights in Hainan are concentrated in a land area of ​​more than 30,000 square kilometers. Once the province least suitable for general aviation flights, it has now become the most convenient province for flying. This major change is due to the low-altitude airspace in Hainan. Management reform.

In other parts of China, general aviation planes generally need to report 3 days or 1 week before they take off. In Hainan, they can report on the same day and take off on the same day.

  According to Ma Yonghua, Hainan has opened up airspace resources below 1,000 meters, and explored and opened up airspace resources below 3,000 meters in some areas. There were 23 low-altitude airspaces in three categories and three low-altitude visual flight routes from Haikou to the east, middle and west of Sanya. Low-altitude flight network within.

  “The same flight training business takes about 1 year in other places, and it only takes 4 months to come to Hainan.” Zhang Hongfei, head of Henan Yongxiang General Aviation Co., Ltd., said that the company puts most of its helicopter training business in Haikou Jiazi Airport. And registered a new company in June.

  Ma Yonghua said that Hainan's general aviation industry is booming, and a "land, sea and air" and "three-dimensional" mid-to-high-end consumption model integrating low-altitude flying tourism, yachts, sea fishing, and duty-free shopping has been initially formed.

  According to reports, Hainan Jinlin Investment Group has deployed 8 general-purpose airports in Haikou, Danzhou, Dongfang, Sanya and other places. At the same time, it is planning to deploy 40 different types of flying stations on the coastal south ring road tourist highway.
