Symbols are important, especially in China, and Avion Pacific Ltd. (Chalet 370) has chosen a precious 20-carat diamond to symbolize the preciousness of each of its 20 years of operation as a general aviation service and support center in China.

“Avion pioneered many firsts in China GA,” said Wu Zhendong, founder and president of Avion Pacific. “We were the first to import a business jet here for domestic operation; the first to provide foreign crew technical and operational support for domestic general aviation companies; and the first to introduce special training programs,” he said.

The diamond, worth $10 million U.S., is courtesy of Graff Diamonds, and is part of a display worth more than $50 million. –A.L.
