The 2021 China Aviation Industry Conference and Nanchang Air Show held in Nanchang will be an aesthetic dream for aviation enthusiasts as they can view aerobatic flights and try out advanced aircrafts.

Flight displays and an exhibition were organized at the city's Yaohu Airport after the two events' opening ceremony on Friday. Powered paragliders, drones and nine aerobatic teams from countries such as the United States and Russia participated in the displays.

The exhibition offered more than 60 airplanes. Among them were helicopters made in East China's Jiangxi province, where Nanchang is the capital, advanced business airplanes, emergency rescue helicopters and general aviation aircraft.

In total, 50 domestic and foreign aviation companies and academies such as Airbus, France's Safran and Commercial Aircraft Corp of China are on display at the exhibition.

Eleven launch conferences are also part of the two events, which will end on Sunday. Enterprises and research institutions such as Shanghai-headquartered Spring Airlines and Jiangxi Research Institute of Beihang University have prepared to launch their new products and services at a flight test center near Yaohu Airport.

The debuts involve both industrial products that can demonstrate excellent research and development and production capacities of Jiangxi's aviation sector and goods that can be used by common people.

Zheng Tangjie, deputy general manager of a Nanchang-based aviation industry company, said the trend of CJ-6, primary trainer aircraft, from military application to civil use is important for the company, which launched a new edition of civil CJ-6 in September.

It will offer aviation hobbyists and related users opportunities to visit the plane's cockpit and also after-sales service products at a debut on Sunday.

Jiangxi Tengyu General Aviation planned to launch its newest TU amphibious drone system and promote the emergency rescue services of different aircraft types on Saturday.

Gong Xin, general manager of the company, said: "The large TU unmanned aerial vehicle was developed for providing powerful rescue and efficient logistics delivery."

A Jingdezhen-based helicopter company, co-founded by Jiangxi province and Beijing Automotive Group, recommended the light aircraft it had spent four years developing and making on Friday. The helicopter received a type certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China last year and can be used for training pilots, crop protection and private possession.

Spring Airlines promoted its new air routes for this winter and Jiangxi-related tourism services on the same day.
