The “Careers in Aviation–Awareness Programme” was successfully held on 26th October 2019. It was co-organized by the HKSAR Government Education Bureau and RAeS Hong Kong Branch. A group of local school teachers and parents were invited to visit HAECO and HAESL for a better understanding of aviation industry in Hong Kong.
The tour in HAECO explored great details about the aircraft maintenance in Hong Kong and employment opportunities for young graduates. Participants were especially interested in the hangar tour which they could witness aircraft undergoing maintenance checking.
At the HAESL tour, the teachers and parents were introduced to the fundamentals of engine overhaul business. They visited the Module Change workshop and Engine testing facility to gain understanding about the overhaul workflow. During the workshop tour, participants were able to observe XWB engine undergoing maintenance work.
Teachers and parents raised a lot of questions at both visits and they found this tour interesting and informative. They were impressed with the career development in the aviation industry and would like to share the information with their students/children.
