The first ‘airtown’ featuring aviation cultural tourism in Hunan province recently launched its groundbreaking opening ceremony in Weishan Mountain scenic spot, Ningxiang county.
The word ‘airtown’, originating from the English concept of ‘airpark’, is a regional concept that covers such aspects as general aviation cultural exchanges, flight training, flying display, airplane trading and maintenance, flight competition, aviation education, etc.
The ‘airtown’ in Ningxiang county, a district of the provincial capital Changsha, is expected to be built into a comprehensive tourist resort which integrates airport, mountain sports park and leisure holiday center.
Tourists can experience entertaining outdoor sports like skydiving, mountain sports, equitation and cross-country racing. It will also be used for pilot training, flight experiences, sports for leisure, and aviation education.
Ding hong, the secretary-general of Hunan Sports Facilities Construction Association, said that the ‘airtown’ has a promising future as it embodies the perfect combination of modern aviation culture and leisure culture.
The whole project, covering an area of 3,000 mu (200 hectares), will be completed in three years with a total investment budget of 500 million yuan ($79.84 million).
