BEIJING, August 4 (Xinhuanet) – In late July, the seminar on logistics support for flight in the plateau and frigid areas of the army aviation troops of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) was held at the Sichuan-Tibet Military Service Station Department of the PLA Chengdu Military Area Command (MAC). A total of 100-odd representatives from 12 units of PLA army aviation troops attended the seminar.

According to the introduction of a leader of the Army Aviation Department of the General Staff Headquarters (GSH) of the PLA, the central topic of this seminar is the logistics support for the flight tasks that the army aviation troops carry out in the plateau and frigid areas.

The plateau and frigid areas in China take up 2.4 million square kilometers. Because of the severe natural conditions and underdevelopment economy, the logistics support for flight of army aviation has long been confronted with urgent problems such as weather forecast, air traffic control, material raising, POL support and medical service support.

At a place on the Western Sichuan Plateau at an altitude of more than 3,500 meters, an army aviation field and station of the Sichuan-Tibet Military Service Station Department of the PLA Chengdu MAC organized an actual-troop drill of logistics support for army aviation flight in the plateau and frigid areas, drilling in subjects such as emergency medical aid and disposal of special situations on plateau.
