Xi'an Aircraft Industry (Group) Company, Ltd, China's Flight Test Establishment, Xi'an Aircraft Design Institute, and Aerospace and Aeronautical College of Xi'an Jiaotong University are located at this district. It is an aviation base mainly in the fields of avionics products, research and development, manufacturing, flight test and scientific study. Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao and many other national leaders have visited this aviation base.

Yanliang is an industry city featuring aviation. It also plays a key role in Shaanxi economy development strategy called "One line and Two belts". Xi'an Yanliang aviation hi-tech industry park and Yangliang industry park of Xi'an economy and technology development zone are two national-level new parks having the advantage of aviation industry and aviation hi-tech industry.

However, there are unconfirmed reports that the Chinese had built a ski jump nearly identical to that of the Varyag at Yanliang [Janliang] Airfield, which is China's main aviation test facility. Reportedly it appeared that preparions were in progress to test aircraft on it. As of early 2008 a variant of the Su-27 was being flight tested at this facility.
