Each year the Chinese Air Force starts the school year properly with an open house on the homebase of the Aviation University Flight Instructor Training Base.

All aircraft had arrived about a week before the actual open house. The initial days were intended for military personnel, including 1,400 pilots that had graduated over the last twelve months.

The air show for the general public was interesting with high performance jet fighters flying including extensive use of flares by helicopters and fighters, a dog fight between the J-10 and J-11 and assault roping using the CSAR helicopter. Domestic pride Ba Yi was represented by only one J-10 as all the other aircraft had just performed at Kubinka near Moscow.
