The flight inspection system is the core equipment for the implementation of the flight inspection mission and it is also one of the premises for airport operations and route openness. The equipment can ensure the safety of communications, navigation, surveillance and other facilities to meet operating requirements of the flight.

the main duty of flight inspection is to ensure the accuracy of navaids such as ILS, VOR etc. is good enough for the aircrafts operation. The mentioned flight inspection system or equipment is installed within the flight inspection aircraft and need to be operated by flight inspection system operator. In the past the flight inspection center of CAAC did not have above system that designed by we chinese to carry out the inspection duty but purchased from abroad. By now, we have.
