By now, the first phase of the base’s standardized workshops have completed construction, and eight suppliers have entered the base. The Lantian Airport has completed construction at the base and has been approved to offer tests for drones.

With a planned area of 333 hectares, the Zigong Drone Industrial Base aims to build a full industrial chain for drones and promote supporting industries to realize an annual output of more than 10 billion yuan.
