An 82-year-old Chinese female pilot has set a record in the country's aviation industry after flying a small plane for 40 minutes in Beijing on Tuesday.

Miao Xiaohong, one of China's second batch of female pilots, controlled the Tecnam P2010 plane to take off, turn, climb, dive and land safely at the Shifosi Airport in Pinggu district in Beijing. A trainer accompanied her.

After stepping down from the plane, Miao, who has retired for 30 years, told her former colleague who accompanied her at the airport that she felt it was great, and that her heartbeat was normal and suitable for flight.
