China to finish airspace classification by 2010


The Office of the National Air Traffic Management Commission said that it is targeting 2010 to implement airspace classification in China. Airspace classification is an important standard of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In 2004, The State Council and Central Military Commission determined the strategic target of learning ICAO airspace classification standards and scientifically dividing airspace classification. In recent years, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has studied the foreign airspace classification situation. It provides full technical preparation for China to implement airspace classification that is appropriate to its situation. The goal of airspace classification is to meet the various needs of civil aviation, general aviation, and the military, and to ensure that airspace be used safely and effectively. Airspace classification ccan increase the airspace safety level within an acceptable range by classifying requirements on flight rules, flight personnel qualification, air ground communication, navigation, and supervision equipments capability. It can also fulfill the optimal deployment of airspace resources, and release the maximum airspace resources for general aviation. Airspace classification can also implement optimal deployment of air traffic management resources. It can provide appropriate air traffic service for various airspace users, provide control separation service in the busy airspace, and ensure flight safety and order Furthermore, it can provide flight information service and alert service in the airspace for general aviation flights. China’s low-altitude airspace management reform is a test of airspace classification.
