Ysyk-Ata District (Russian: Ысык–Атинский район) is one of the eight districts of Chuy Province in the northern Kyrgyzstan. The administrative center of the district is the city of Kant, and the district itself was known as Kant District in the past. The district is located on the southern side of the Chui River, about halfway between the national capital Bishkek and the former provincial capital Tokmok.
The district's land area 1,900 square km; population 131,503, of which 21,762 live in the district center, the city of Kant.
Air force base and school
In 1941, a Soviet Air Force base and pilot training school were set up in the district. During World War II, 1507 military pilots were trained there. Since 1956, the school trained foreign pilots; among its graduates were both the ex-Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and the late Syrian president Hafez Assad.
The district authorities, as well as the residents of the riverside village of Milianfan (Russian: Милянфан), are concerned with the River Chui gradually washing away the district's land, as it shifts its course to the south and erodes its left (southern) bank.
As of 2009, Ysyk-Ata District included 1 town, and 58 villages in 18 rural communities (aiyl okmotus). Its de facto population, according to the Population and Housing Census of 2009, was 131,503, and de jure population 132,759. Some 21,762 people live in urban areas, and 109,741 in rural ones.
