A roster of leading aviation officials from Asia and the US, took the stage for the opening session of ABACE 2014, welcoming attendees and exhibitors to what Shanghai Airport Authority president Li Derun called 'the must-attend event' for the business aviation industry.

This event highlights the growth of business aviation in the Republic, Civil Aviation Administration of China (CC) and that China had 189 general aviation companies at the end of last year, a 41% increase over the previous year s figure, while the fleet had grown by 23.4%, to 1,654 aircraft, with total general aviation flight time increasing 10%, to 569,000 hours.
