From November 4 to 7, the 2017 FAI World Fly-In Expo (WFE) was held at Hannan General Airport. The aircraft had flown 1,907 sorties during the four-day performances and competitions, making the expo boast the largest air shows ever in China in terms of sorties and flying hours.
The 2017 WFE featured aerobatics, interactive activities, exhibitions, summits, business meetings, and activities to promote the world of aviation. Over 1,000 sportsmen, performers, referees, and officials from over 40 countries on six continents participated in aerobatics, parachuting, powered paragliding, and hot air ballooning.
A two-hour aerial show was staged at the opening ceremony. The Aviad from the U.S. and Spain's Doubleas Aerobatic Team led by Ramón Alonso with Jorge Alonso presented breathtaking aerobatic stunts.
