About company

ACP was established in 2004 as a public-private partnership to help with China’s aviation development. Working closely with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), airlines, airports and other Chinese aviation stakeholders, ACP’s assistance is directed toward the country’s highest priority activities, involving safety, efficiency and capacity.

The history of aviation cooperation between the United States and China can be traced back to the 1970s, when our two nations began to reestablish diplomatic relations. Today, China’s aviation sector is expanding rapidly to meet the needs of airline passengers and cargo transportation. This growth in both domestic and international aviation translates into the need for substantial increases in flights, passenger and cargo aircraft capacity, general aviation, air traffic management upgrades, and professional training — all of which constitutes a substantial market opportunity for US aviation companies.
