Chinese air force to reduce pilot training costs


08:58, November 13, 2012

ZHUHAI, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- China's air force has undergone reforms in order to reduce the cost of training new pilots and enhance the quality of their training, an air force official said Monday.

Reforms related to theoretical study, the pilot selection process, training subjects and methodology have taken place, He Weirong, deputy commander of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force, said at an international symposium on military flight held in south China's Zhuhai city.

Air force training has become more diversified and complex due to the reforms, He said.

The ultimate aim of the reforms is to enhance training quality and reduce costs, said Xie Hong, deputy head of the PLA Air Force training command.

"We have made a lot of efforts to develop and use flight simulators to shorten training and save costs," said Xie.
