To promote knowledge on aviation meteorology, the Hong Kong Observatory will organise General Education Lectures on Aviation Weather in the Lecture Hall of Hong Kong Science Museum on 13 July 2011.
The topics of the lectures will cover weather observation and measurement, weather hazards to aviation, how to interpret aviation weather reports and forecasts, as well as aviation weather services provided by the Hong Kong Observatory. The guest speakers from Scout Association of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Air Cadet Corps will also share their flying experience in Hong Kong and cross-country as well as use of weather information in flight planning.
There will be a written quiz containing 12 multiple choice questions on aviation weather immediately after the lectures. For those participants answer all quiz questions correctly, they can obtain a certificate signed by the Director of the Hong Kong Observatory, Mr. CM Shun, for the event.
The lectures are open to the public and the target participants are students, air scouts and air cadets. Details of the event and registration method can be found on the Observatory's website (http://www.hko.gov.hk/en/whatsnew/a3_gelaw20110623e.htm).
