PRLog - Sep. 24, 2010 - ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- Beijing, China. From September 16th through September 22nd, Sunrise Aviation, a flight school in Florida, met with aviation industry leaders in Beijing and Inner Mongolia, China. Sunrise Aviation has enrolled students from around the world including Asia during the past 27 years. China continues to be a strong force in aviation in Asia and now is the second largest airline market in the world. China will need to train over 2,000 pilots each year to meet current and forecasted demand for airline pilots. If general aviation continues to expand, the number of professional pilots needed to meet the additional general aviation demand may be much greater than that.
