First Desert Airport Under Construction – Ningxia Yiyang General Aviation planning to Open Dunhuang-Beijing Flight

Hidden inside Shapotou, one of the first National 5A Scenic Areas in Zhongwei City, Ningxia, there is a desert general aviation airport, built by Ningxia Yiyang General Aviation. It has a runway 500 meters long, 23 meters wide. Another one or two months, the phase two project will extend the runway to 600 meters long and 30 meters wide, and a 100-meter buffer zone will also be prepared on each end of the runway. Private aviators can not only enjoy ground tour in the scenic area, but also take off from the desert airport and fly above Shapoto to appreciate the spectacular scene of the desert and the oasis being divided by the Yellow River.

Yiyang General Aviation plans to open a low altitude flight route between Beijing and Dunhuang, looking forward to building up a platform and environment for aviators, and form China’s own EAA after a period of development.
