Guangzhou Military Region Air Force
Guangzhou Military Area Air Force Command
The Guangzhou Military Region Air Force was originally established in 1950 as the Zhongnan (South Central) MRAF in Wuhan and was relocated to Guangzhou and redesignated as the Guangzhou MRAF in May 1955.
An U/I Aviation Division from Guangzhou MRAF is reported to have stepped up plans for night training exercises for 2003, to meet combat requirements. The unit has previously completed transregional maneuvers for redeployment at night and long range interception of aircraft at night over water.
