Chinese Naval Aviation?

The Chinese are sort of admitting that they have been planning to build or acquire an aircraft carrier.

They already own the uncompleted Soviet Navy carrier Varyag and the retired Minsk.

Even after China commissions its first flat-decked carrier sometime in the future, it will take many years until they are fully able to operate it. Flying and maintaining aircraft from a carrier isn't exactly a time for amateur hour.
