China's Air Force recently invited a group of 24 Chinese academicians to give their advice on its strategic transformation and scientific development.

These academicians, from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), are all members of the Third Group of Academic Advisors employed by the Air Force in 2006, according to the political department of the Air Force.

In meeting with Air Force officers, the academicians presented their views on a number of key issues like the research and development of the new-generation weapons, the fostering of talented people, the strategic forewarning and monitoring, the protection of major targets, and a full-scale analysis on flight safety.

The Air Force has taken the lead in the People's Liberation Army to form strategic relations with the country's top scientists and engineers, according to the sources. In 2006, the Air Force began engaging CAS and CAE academicians specialized mainly in the fields of aviation, missile and radar as advisors.
