Global Network reporter Pei Road, March 18, 2010, China’s first jumbo civilian helicopter first flight AC313 Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province. According to Wang Bin, general manager of AVIC helicopter introduced in the aircraft industry in AC313 helicopter helicopter development phase, on the organization of market research team visited seven civilian user units (Ministry of salvage bureau flight control center, the Chinese maritime surveillance maritime surveillance aircraft management office, the national network to build at the helicopter, Guoren rescue Investment Management Co., Ltd., China dragon professional airline, CITIC Offshore Helicopter Co., Ltd., Zhuhai Helicopter Company) and a user and the Ministry of Public Security Police Equipment Finance Bureau, to carry out a thorough market research, from the civilian market, police market and a comprehensive analysis of foreign markets to assess the AC313 helicopter in the next 20 years, the domestic market prospects.
AC313 helicopter as a large helicopter, with a tonnage of moderate, full-featured, versatile advantages, suitable for general aviation, paramilitary segments.
– forestry, forest departments to use helicopters for air. Use of helicopters for air forest protection, not only can detect fire, and can quickly drop cable landing or fire fighting personnel, or direct fire sprinklers will be nipped in the incipient stage, the losses to a minimum. Air China each year about 7 million acres of forest area, more than 30 fire stations and patrol routes between the empty large, scattered forest, found the fire rate of 70-90%. “Eleventh Five-Year” period, the state in the northeast and southwest regions of enhanced air ranger patrol route density, the construction of 30 forest protection stations ,95-100 patrol routes, each year about the use of aircraft and 75 helicopters, flying 5500 hours.
It is, at present, China’s forestry sector and forest armed police have purchased eight straight 8 firefighting helicopters for forest fire fighting, transportation and other supplies, the helicopters have been delivered forests are gradually armed forces. The next 10-15 years, China needs all kinds of forest fire fighting helicopters, 180 type, which will be its main AC313 helicopter models, needs about 80 or so. The use of helicopters in remote areas can also perform rescue personnel, materials, and timber transportation and other tasks, the future of the forestry sector will remain an important user of China’s helicopter.
– built in inaccessible or difficult to use fixed-wing helicopter airport where you can engage in short-distance transport services. The transport sector to develop a larger number of plans to buy helicopters for the rescue of marine salvage, transportation, in the “Eleventh Five-Year” period has begun implementing. Short-distance transport services, maritime rescue, life-saving salvage require large and medium-sized helicopters, the next 10-15 years to be large, about 40 medium-sized helicopters.
– disaster relief. 2008 Sichuan earthquake to the country and the people causing great loss, the harsh reality of relief to make people keenly aware of the insufficient number of helicopters. Disaster relief is a national emergency response system, the current national, provincial and municipal emergency rescue and disaster relief centers have generated much-needed search and rescue, medical care, transport relief supplies to large and medium-sized helicopters, including the field of natural disasters and major accidents emergency , emergency medical rescue, marine rescue. Demands from the rescue helicopter in the Western developed countries such as Britain, France, Germany, basically every 50 kilometers on a landing point, the United States for every 200 km on the establishment of a landing point. According to the needs of the Chinese rescue region, at least 300 bases, about 1000 light, medium and heavy helicopters.
– used for offshore oil drilling and exploration services. China’s general aviation industry in the offshore oil drilling and exploration services, general aviation has been far more than in other fields. China offshore helicopter services since the early 1980s to now, the business scope including the use of helicopters for offshore oil operations provides personnel, material transport and search and rescue services, the Bohai Bay along China’s coast from Hainan Island to the airport for about 14 helicopter protection. Existing professional company China National Offshore Helicopter, China General Airlines and China Southern Airlines Zhuhai Helicopter Company as the western South China Sea, Eastern South China Sea, East China Sea and Bohai Sea cooperation and offshore oil exploration and development support. Offshore AC313-type machine with three rounds of security configuration is good, with a water landing and floating capability, ideal for offshore operations. Oil, gas company has been using helicopters for offshore oil platforms and onshore oil transportation services, and has developed programs to increase the number and use of helicopters to carry out oil exploration, transportation services, etc.; SOA requires a large helicopter for scientific investigation. The next 10-15 years to be large, about 80 medium-sized helicopters.
– the power sector for the erection of high voltage lines, lifting equipment and cabling, testing and so on. 2008 South snowstorm gave us the power sector, power transmission lines caused huge losses, the power sector for exploration and development and application of helicopter power, high voltage lines set up, lifting equipment, cabling, testing and operation of electric power transmission line is increasing high, which is AC313 helicopter is a good development opportunity for the next 10-15 years to be large, about 30 medium-lift helicopter.
– medical care. Used in disaster areas, remote areas, inaccessible local implementation of emergency medical aid, sick and wounded transfer. At the current development of China’s medical rescue system projections, created in recent years, China’s air emergency medical rescue system, AC313-type machine has enough space can be easily converted to air the operating table, the implementation of air operations. The next 10-15 years to be large, medium-sized medical rescue helicopter about 20.
– urban services will become the future of general aviation applications is an important breakthrough. As China’s economic development and modernization process in order to improve the comprehensive management of the city, police, fire and customs rapid response capability, the use of aircraft, helicopters is imperative. Abroad in this field, the use of helicopters, a high degree, but only at the initial and in our stage of development. Present – some medium-sized cities on the requirements of general aviation services, growing around such as police, city fire, emergency medical services in cities such as general aviation flight operations in the future will continue to grow. The next 10-15 years to be large, about 20 medium-lift helicopter.
– Air Tour is becoming a new fashion tourism projects, visit our aviation market has great potential. China’s tourist attractions and more scenic spots within the many and scattered, ground transportation is very convenient to use, and use of aircraft attractions is appropriate. Northwest China’s new, hidden, blue, Gansu, Ningxia region has many attractions, such as the ancient Silk Road, the Tibetan Plateau, the Loess Plateau, highland lakes, the Great Salt Lake, Desert, Yellow River and Yangtze River source of many mountains and canyons, but also aviation travel best choice.
reporter has learned that, although China’s aerial sightseeing, charter and other projects have not short-scale and industrial, but with the national economic development, simplified the approval procedures, our helicopter will travel market recently real start in the next 5-10 years by the rapid development of the next 10-15 years to be large, about 20 medium-lift helicopter.
—- AC313 helicopter for the public security system, the wide range of uses, demand urgent. Main uses include personnel and material transport, urban fire and so on. In personnel transport, the implementation of urgently needed anti-terror task, especially in southern China, northwestern frontier, anti-terrorism situation is very grim.
