Air Force Xi'an Flight Academy


The Air Force Xi’an Flight Academy is designated very-high risk due to its direct subordination to the PLA Air Force and its work training military personnel in advanced air combat.

Created upon the merger of the PLA Air Force’s Second and Fifth Flight Academies in 2011, the Air Force Xi’an Flight Academy specialises in training airmen in aviation while passing on the PLA’s ‘revolutionary traditions’. It remains ‘one of the Air Force’s three advanced institutions in air combat, and is known to train the PLA Air Force’s JJ-7 fighter pilots. Given this focus on training, the institution engages in little scientific research.
