Chinese village to experiment with helicopter tourism

Chinese village to experiment with helicopter tourismA small Chinese village, considered the richest in the country, is testing the idea of air tourism as a revenue generator for the village.  Huaxi, a provincial town of 560 in 1957, now has 36,000 residents who all boast a net worth of over $250,000.  Officials are experimenting with helicopter and, eventually, airplane flights above the city.  They have already spent 90 million yuan ($13.9 million) on two helicopters, with residents getting a free test ride.

The flights plan to cater to upscale tourists willing to spend large amounts of money on a relatively short flight.  As many as 10 crew members will be on board to support 2-4 passengers at a time.  The flights will center around the village itself, but plans to expand their range are already being discussed.
