Weather Briefing for Hong Kong Helicopter Club
Invited by the Hong Kong Helicopter Club – a non-profit organization to promote general aviation in Hong Kong, Ms. Sandy Song of the Hong Kong Observatory gave a briefing on "Weather Information for General Aviation" at their dinner gathering on 6 June 2008. About 25 members of the Club attended. This is the first time that the Observatory conducted a briefing to members of the Hong Kong Helicopter Club.
The briefing focused on the means for local aviators to obtain various aviation weather information and services from the Observatory websites so that they could better appreciate the latest weather situation before flying. Flight safety is always the major concern of aviators. Promoting the effective use of weather information can contribute towards the goal of flight safety.
The Vice-President of the Hong Kong Helicopter Club, Dr. Lily Fenn said, "The briefing is very informative and interesting and also meets our needs. We look forward to more exchanges in the future."
