        China-- Some (very) Basics

                            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
China                     the GDP of the USA

  Fewer than 150 civil-use airports, only a handful open to GA
  Airspace tightly controlled by military. GA access lowest priority
  Lack of popular and official awareness and understanding

                           Tons of pilot wannabes
