On 01 July 1999, in an effort to become more competitive, China established ten new state-owned aviation corporations, including splitting AVIC (Aviation Industry of China), which had 560,000 employees, into AVIC I and II. AVIC I and II are both cooperators and competitors. AVIC I AND II were equal economic entities authorized by the state to make investments, operating as a state holding company under the direct supervision of the Central Government. The scope of business for AVIC I and AVIC II looked similar, but had a different emphasis. Generally speaking, AVIC I focused on large- and medium-sized aircraft while AVIC II gave priority to feeder aircraft and helicopters.

AVIC I mainly engaged in the development, manufacturing, sales, and after-sales services of military and civil aircraft, engines, airborne equipment, weaponry systems. They also produce non-aviation products. Military products include fighters, fighter-bombers, bombers, transports, trainers and reconnaissance aircraft. Fighters in mass production are F7, F8 and their derivatives. Bombers include the H5 and H6 series. Trainers include the FT6, FT7, and HJ5. Civil aircraft include the Y7 and its derivatives, which are short to medium range transport aircraft. Non-aviation products include more than 3000 different types of products in 8 major categories including industrial gas turbines, automobiles, motorcycles, refrigerating machinery and environmental protection equipment. AVIC I services include aircraft leasing and general aviation services, geotechnical engineering, construction contracting and real estate.

AVIC I had 53 large- and medium-sized industrial enterprises, 31 research institutes, 19 specialized companies and institutions respectively engaged in foreign trade, material supply, scientific research and product development. Nearly 240 thousand people are employed in industrial enterprises while 45,000 more employees work in research institutes. Total assets are RMB 34.9 billion.

Examples of AVIC I enterprises include Chengdu Aircraft Company, Xian Aircraft Company, Nanchang Aircraft Company, Shenyang Aircraft Company and their National Trade Bureau. Parts for Boeing jetliners and other non-Chinese aircraft are made at these facilities. Y-7 and military aircraft are also under the responsibility of AVIC I. AVIC I & II each hold 50% of CATIC (China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation) shares.
