30 August, 2017 — Shenzhen: Amber Aviation has moved a major step closer to realizing its aim of becoming Asia’s leader in bespoke business jet services, after obtaining the Air Operator Certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), which allows the company to operate business aircraft under CCAR Part 135 regulations.
Amber Aviation was founded by China business aviation pioneer Mr. Chang Qiu Sheng in February this year and has quickly achieved several key milestones with the support of various parties including CAAC, the air traffic control department and airports. At the beginning of its establishment, the company received approval from Bao’an International Airport, Shenzhen as a principal base of operations.
