  • 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.”
