Gliding is a popular and fiercely competitive sports event in the world. There is gliding world championship that is held every 2 years and also various gliding competitions held at home and abroad. Jiayuguan is located in the central region of Hexi Corridor, centered on the air base. Due to the wide and flat terrain, Jiayuguan is a favorable venue for gliding of long distance and setting records. As there are flat crop farmlands around, it’s suitable for gilders’ forced landing. The superior local conditions including the topflight gliding instruments and superexcellent air flow condition are highly commended by gliding athletes and coaches around the world, attracting an increasing number of gilding athletes from home and abroad. Jiayuguan is the national gliding base that is recommended to the world organization by the National Sports Commission.
