The Beijing MR Training Base itself was established on 26 October 1988 when the 17th Division (serials 3xx8x) was reorganized.
In 2017 the 99th Regiment (serials 41x4x) turned into 99th Brigade using a new serial batch.

For psychological operations 20th Division uses Y-8XZ ('New High 7') aircraft that are optimised to broadcast radio and tv signals in non-friendly environments. Before 2012 the Regiment was subordinated to 10th Division.

In 2010 the 2nd Flying Academy/2nd Reg (serials 70x2x) with Z-9s replaced the Navigator Training School (serials 72x9x) with H-5 and HJ-5 operating from this base.

The serials for the Y-7s need confirmation.
In 2017 JJ-7/J7-II aircraft were noted with the 1st Regiment, putting question marks at this Y-7/Z-9 unit number. Indication are that some (all?) Z-9s went to the Northern Theatre Command Transportation Brigade.
