Here’s another chance to test your “AVsavvy”.

Suppose you are operating from ZGGG to VHHH. You have a landing permit for China. Is an additional landing permit for VHHH required?

CHINA INFORMATION:

– FLT PLAN FOR O/F WITHIN SANYA AOR MUST BE FILED AT LEAST 3 HOURS PRIOR TO ETD.
– O/F PMT N/R FOR FLTS OPERATING THROUGH SANYA FIR/ZJSA VIA FLWG ROUTES:
A1, P901, L642, M771, N892. THESE DON’T O/F CHINA’S LANDMASS.
– OVER WATER THE ZJSA FIR IS MONITORED BY VHHH ATC. BECAUSE CHINA ATC DOES NOT
MONITOR THIS AIRSPACE, CAA CHINA DOES NOT CONSIDER ANY A/C ENTERING THE ZJSA
FIR OVER WATER AS ENTERING CHINESE AIRSPACE, THEY CONSIDER THE ZGZU FIR AS THE ENTRY
FOR ENTERING CHINESE AIRSPACE AND THE WAYPOINT ON THIS FIR SHOULD BE USED AS THE
ENTRY FIX ON THE CHINA PERMIT.
– FLIGHTS WITH ORIGIN OR DESTINATION OF TAIWAN ARE NOT PERMITTED TO LAND OR OVERFLY
CHINA. THIS INCLUDES ARRIVING AND DEPARTING FROM CHINA AND OVERFLYING TAIWAN
ENROUTE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. THE EXCEPTION IS AMBULANCE FLTS.
– UNLESS OTHERWISE APPROVED BY CHINA CAAC OR LOCAL AUTHORITIES NO MORE THAN THE
ORIGINAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO ARRIVE ON A FLIGHT CAN DEPART ON THAT FLIGHT
(FEWER MAY LEAVE THAN ARRIVE, BUT NOT MORE).
– A LANDING PERMIT IS REQUIRED FOR ALL OPERATIONS INTO CHINA.
– TAIWANESE REGISTERED ACFT OVERFLYING CHINA AIRSPACE VIA ZJSA FIR IS OKAY AS LONG
AS IT DOES NOT O/F LANDMASS.

HONG KONG INFORMATION:

HONG KONG CAA IS NOW STRICTLY ENFORCING A 4-DAY ADVANCED APPLICATION AND WILL NOT
CONSIDER ANY URGENT APPS OUTSIDE OF THEIR OFC HRS. CAA IS CLOSED ON SAT AND SUN.
TCAS II IS NOT “REQUIRED” FOR PRIVATE NON-REVENUE FLTS BUT MUST BE INDICATED AS
YES OR NO IN THE REQUEST.
HONG KONG REVERTED BACK TO CHINESE CONTROL ON 01 JUL 97. HONG KONG IS CONSIDERED A SPECIAL
ADMINISTRATION REGION (CONTROLLED BY CHINA, BUT NOT PART OF CHINA) AND WILL
OPERATE UNDER HONG KONG AUTHORITIES, NOT CHINESE AUTHORITIES. OPERATIONS TO HONG
KONG FROM OTHER REGIONS OVERFLYING CHINA STILL REQUIRE A CHINESE OVERFLIGHT
PERMIT, WHICH MUST BE OBTAINED SEPARATELY. ALSO, IF OPERATING FROM CHINA TO HONG KONG,
A LANDING PERMIT FOR EACH COUNTRY IS REQUIRED.
A LANDING PERMIT IS REQUIRED FOR BOTH PRIVATE NON-REVENUE AND CHARTER (NON-SCHEDULED
COMMERCIAL) FLIGHTS.
APPLICATIONS FOR NON-SKED AIR SERVICES FOR CARRIAGE OF BOTH PAXS AND CARGO WILL
NOT NORMALLY BE CONSIDERED.

Based on the above information, which statement below is correct? Answer below and come back next Friday to see if you got the answer right!
