    • Abstract:
      The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) predecessor organization, the Department of

      Commerce Aeronautics Branch took an early interest in China, as it did with other nations. As

      early as November 1931, the Aeronautics Branch published “procedures governing flights in

      China by American airmen.” Those rules required pilots to provide details of the proposed flight

      to the Chinese Government one month in advance of the contemplated flight. Flight details had

      to include the name of the aviator, type and symbol of the airplane, type and horsepower of the

      motor, as well as information on any stops and the length of stay. The flight could not take place

      until the pilot received permission from the Chinese government. Photographic apparatus, radio

      instruments, mail, and merchandise could not be transported into China, however, arms and

      munitions for self-defense could be brought into China if the pilot received prior approval from

      the Chinese government. A revised requirement published in December 1931mandated that

      airmen “desiring to fly foreign airplanes into China must also inform the Ministry of Foreign

      Affairs at Nanking five days prior to entering Chinese territory, to enable the Chinese

      Government to notify local authorities.”
