Aerospace pilots are selected from active pilots of the air force, aerospace flight engineers are selected from engineering and technical personnel engaged in aerospace engineering and related fields, and payload experts are selected from scientific researchers in the field of space science research and application of manned space engineering.

The selection of the third batch of preparatory astronauts was started in May 2018, which has gone through three stages: primary selection, selective selection and final selection. From about 2500 candidates, 18 qualified astronauts will participate in various missions in the operation phase of the space station after systematic training.
