HKO News Bulletin for the Aviation Community (36th Issue)
About 40 participants of the Dragonair Aviation Certificate Programme (DACP) visited the Hong Kong Observatory Headquarters and Airport Meteorological Office (AMO) on 17 and 18 October 2016. Participants attended lectures on aviation meteorology delivered by Observatory staff. During their visit to AMO, they were briefed the process of formulating aviation forecasts and making meteorological observations. Participants found the experience enriching and rewarding. The Observatory supported the DACP since its inception back in 2006. The programme aims at inspiring the local youngsters in joining the aviation industry.
