To be exact, the building of the helicopter apron in Changbai Mountain will facilitate landing and takeoff so as to achieve the purposes of tourism and business operation of Changbai Mountain.
1.1.2 Market Prospects
(1) Overview
Although some projects of helicopter air sightseeing and short-distance chartered flight, etc. of our country have not been established into a scale and an industry by now, with the national economic development and the simplification of all the approval formalities, the helicopter tourist market of our country is expected to be truly started.
In recent years, with the improvement of people’s living standard day by day, the disposable income per capita has been continuously increased and people’s consumption demand for tourism has become stronger and stronger; however, with the continuous updating of people’s concepts on tourism, some traditional tourism demands and products such as sightseeing and shopping, etc. have not been unable to meet people’s consumption demand for the rising tourism with adventure, sports and leisure, etc. as the themes. In such a situation, a lot of tourist forms and new products including the helicopter tourism have emerged and tended to rise and flourish. The helicopter tourism belongs to the aviation tourism. It can provide the unique views and feelings for the tourists at the low altitude of the air, which cannot be met in the tourism on the ground. Today, the high-end tourist market of our country has been developed rapidly, so the uniqueness of the helicopter tourism has the great attractive force for the tourists who continuously pursue the new objects and seek novelty.
By now, the civil helicopter application has been further developed, which is mainly represented in the facts that the application fields have been continuously expanded and the network service pattern has been established. In addition to the traditional application field, the civil helicopter application fields will be further expanded. With the rapid growth of the economy of our country, it is necessary to establish the new high-consumption strata, which will bring about the continuous growth of the demand for the private helicopters. With the gradual opening of the low altitude of air of our country, the helicopter tourism will obtain the big development space.
Changbai Mountain has become the necessary scenic spot that the tourists out of Jilin Province will visit. Based on the above, the building of the comprehensive helicopter application project in Changbai Mountain can make the tourists visit the north, west and south slopes of Changbai Mountain and then Changbai Mountain is taken as the center to establish the tourism interlinking system of Jilin Province.
(2) Market Analysis
The civil helicopter is the important modern transport tool. Its ownership has become one of the important symbols of the economic development level of a country or region.
In 2015, the ownership of civil helicopters of our country is about 90 and that in the world is more than 35000 and the average ownership per 1 million persons is 4.5. Calculated according to the above, the ownership of helicopters of our country should be 5070, but in fact, the average ownership of our country is only 0.07, less than 2% of the world.
In some provinces or cities of our country such as Tianjin, Xinjiang, Jiangxi and Henan, etc., a lot of helicopter tourism projects have been developed, so the project has the good prospect.
(3) Market demand analysis
The project is the new mode of the tourism and its consumption is periodical. It is mainly oriented to the tourists to Changbai Mountain in the whole country. The helicopter tourist market is mainly oriented to the high-end groups of consumers. The main consumption demands include passenger transport, cargo transport and air sightseeing projects. The passenger transport is mainly aimed at the outside tourists to Changbai Mountain; the cargo transport is mainly aimed at the large enterprises in the local area and around it; the air sightseeing is mainly aimed at people of Jilin Province. With the market investigation, the citizens of our province are greatly interested in the helicopter tourism and willing to try it. In addition, many new couples are willing to hold their wedding ceremony in such a mode, so the project has the good market prospect.
(4) Competition analysis
In recent years, the economy of Changbai Mountain economic circle has been rapidly developed. The project, as the rising tourism, has the broad development prospect in the market. The tourists coming to Changbai Mountain for tourism every year has been increased year by year. The helicopter tourism is still a blank in the tourist transport in our country, so the target market of the helicopter tourism is broad. The riding of helicopters will not only alleviates the ground traffic pressure but also provide the convenient and rapid air services. The novel tourism mode will attract a great number of tourists and make the tourism of Changbai Mountain have the strong competitiveness.
1.1.3 Technical Analysis
In the project, the helicopter apron should be first built. The helicopter apron is the platform for the helicopter to take off and land. Such a platform should be often equipped with the relevant auxiliary navigation equipment, air traffic communication and service equipment, meteorological facilities, fire and rescue equipment and airport marks, etc. Therefore, the helicopter apron is designed by the special helicopter apron engineers and the apron equipment should completely meet the specification of Volume 2 of Appendix 14 of CAAC and ICAO. It is planned to build Chibei, Chixi and Chinan Helicopter Airports, which will be oriented to the high-end group of tourists to build the helicopter tourist routes and make the tourists able to take helicopters to fully enjoy the scenery of Changbai Mountain.
1.1.4 A dvantaged Conditions of Project Construction
(1) Policy conditions
According to the Opinions on Deepening the Reform of the Low Airspace Management System printed and issued by the State Council and the Central Military Commission in August 2010, the low airspace pilot reform will be popularized in the whole country as of 2011. The low airspace will be divided into controlled airspace, monitored airspace and report airspace for management. According to the requirements of division of the three airspaces, Changchun, Jilin Province and Guangzhou first obtained the qualification for the pilot reform.
On November 20, 2013, the Headquarters of General Staff of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and Civil Aviation Administration of China jointly issued the Provisionsn on Approval and Management of the General Aviation Flight Missions, pointing out that the military will release the approval right of the general aviation flight missions unrelated to the national defense and territory so as to simplify the general aviation flight flow, to some extent. Li Jiaxiang, Director of CAAC expressed that efforts would have been made to achieve the complete opening of the low airspace by 2015, which is undoubtedly good news for the project.
(2) Location advantages
Changbai Mountain is located in Yanbian Autonomous Prefecture of Jilin Province, which is an ethnic minority area and the country and the province have given great support to it in some aspects such as input of funds and policies. Yanbian Prefecture is determined as the experimental area of the reform and opening of the ethnic autonomous area. Because Yanbian Prefecture is the underdeveloped area, it has the strong cost advantages of materials, employment, construction and operation, etc., thus favorable to the reduction of the cost and improvement of the competitiveness. In the human resources and technical level, the project can depend on Air Force Aviation University in the province to provide the personnel support and technical support.
(3) Advantages of industrial foundation
Changbai Mountain is one of the Top 10 famous mountains of China. It became one of the first batch of national AAAAA scenic spots in 2007. With the continuous development for years, the scenic spot, depending on the Heavenly Pool of Changbai Mountain, has become famous at home and abroad and attracted a great number of tourists. The project can be built on the scenic spot of Changbai Mountain and the emphasis is put on the helicopters to develop the high-end tourism.
The helicopter tourism project has the low input and flexible operation. In addition to the operating income of helicopters, the aviation catering and hotel reception services will become the good selling points. Compared with the cableway, it will not destroy the scenic spot. Some problems such as purchase and maintenance of helicopters, flight report and approval formalities, employment of air and ground crew have become easy to resolve with the development of the times. Now, there are a lot of pilots transferred to civilian work from the military, so it is easy to find the air and ground crew.
