An aviation course at Beijing No.57 Middle School aims to identify youngsters with a talent for flight in China. Students, mostly aged 16 and 17, spent one year studying flight theory before starting the field course in July. The program is a joint effort between the school and AOPA China. Entrance is strict, and students are separated between two groups, those who are found suitable for commercial aviation, and the others who are restricted to general aviation.
