13th Air Division
The 13th Air Division was established in April 1951 at Xinjin Xian, Sichuan. The division flew transport and reconnaissance aircraft and was comprised of the 37th and 39th Regiments. China-Military.org also indicates the existence of a 38th Regiment.
In the mid-1980s, the 13th Division provided fixed-wing air transport support for the 15th Airborne Army.
Elements of the division are flying from two or three airbases, including transports at Wuhan, and IL-12s from Yichang.
