The general aviation industry is an emerging industrial system with strategic importance. It has the characteristics of long industrial chain and wide service field. Compared with developed countries, China's general aviation industry still has a large room for development. In the current system of laws and regulations, there exist problems as discrepancy about the definition of general aviation and oversimplified classification. Due to the high degree of professionalism of aviation activities and the particularity of airspace use management in China, operators engaged in general aviation activities often encounter problems such as complex pre-examination procedures and backward flight management modes, which have restricted the development of the general aviation industry to a certain extent. In view of the above problems, it is recommended that the administrative approval process be optimized, the examination and approval of flight activities and flight plans be simplified, post-event supervision of general aviation operators be strengthened to ensure safety, and an efficient general aviation industry management legal system be built to provide stable policy support for the development of the general aviation industry.
