There are opportunities for pilots in China in addition to flying for a commercial airline. Another career is piloting a private jet. Private jets are increasing in China, so of course, more pilots will be needed. Though the numbers are still , in the past three years, registered private jets have increased from only 32 to 137 today. However, the actual numbers of jets sold are most likely higher than that, according to an Asian aviation consulting group, since a large number of Chinese owners have their aircraft based and registered outside mainland China, such as in Hong Kong.
More examples of the growth in China of private jet operators is AllPoints Jet, which is a new charter operator. The company has ordered two Gulfstream jets for delivery in the next few months to the Chengdu airport, where it is based. Avion Pacific has ordered 10 King Air turboprop aircraft from Hawker Beechcrat, for USD $50 million. Nanshan Jet recently took delivery of its second Gulfstream G450 long-range jet and has another two jets alrady on order. And start-up air charter company, Big White Bear Jet, currently has three aircraft.
A U.S. charter company, NetJets, has recently announced a joint venture which will be headquartered in Zhuhai, China. The Europeans are also interested in China’s aviation expansion: VistaJet, from Switzerland, has an alliance with Beijing Airlines, which is the private jet subsidiary of Air China. VistaJet has announced it will expand this partnership. VisaJet currently has 31 Bombardier jets.
