Hi all,


As a continuation of the previous 'Job Opening' post for the mainland China airspace development, we would like to recruit some staff whom are able kindly make some contributions to our project, by developing our aeronautical charts.


Aeronautical charts of the mainland Chinese (especially English versions) are not opened to public, therefore self-development is required. And developing aeronautical charts require time, patience and a sense of responsibility. But upon conclusion of the chart, you will feel rewarded, as members all around VATSIM network who visits mainland Chinese airspace will be flying with your creations!


Please note that all basic training will be provided upon initial stages of chart development.


Below are several selection criteria that will help you to see if this is a job for you:


  • Have basic understanding, and able to interpret aeronautical charts (no specific location constraint, as they are all very similar).
  • Have a basic understanding of vector drawing software usage, such as Inkscape, Fireworks, Illustrator etc.
  • Have a sense of responsibility for quality of charts and chart delivery times.
  • Be able to contribute some time on a weekly basis


Good to

  • Be able to understand Chinese writing.
  • Be proficient with a specific vector drawing software, Inkscape in particular.
  • Be able to maintain frequent communication.


Regarding to the delivery times and time contribution on a weekly basis, although important, but we are very flexible and understanding, and will always encourage that real life commitments are always priority, because we understand very well that all staff involved are volunteers.


To show our gratitude for your work, your name will be publically acknowledged on our website along with the contribution you have made.


If anyone are interested, please either send me a PM, via our website 'Contact Us' section or simple just email me at [email protected] with the following information:

  • Past experience, and whether you need extended training
  • Your current timezone
  • How much time can you contribute to the development


Currently, there are no limits on the amount of staff we are willing to recruit.


Thank you for your attention.
