China is remarkably similar

in geographic area to the

continental USA, and lies at

approximately the same range

of latitudes

China has a population of 1.3 billion (!), about 4x that of the USA

China's economy has grown 8-9%

per year over the last 20 years

China's GDP is currently about 1/3

the GDP of the USA





Today and Tomorrow: Some Numbers to Crunch on

that haven’t open,

Opportunities in

almost every area of

General Aviation!
