Civil Aviation Department - Education Path

Inspiring the Public through Education

Citizens may not have access in everyday life to knowledge related to aviation such as aviation and airport development in Hong Kong, flight safety, etc.  The Aviation Education Path was therefore designed to provide an engaging visitor experience showcasing the functions and vision of the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) while illustrating various activities in the civil aviation industry.

The Aviation Education Path introduces to visitors the history of aviation development in Hong Kong from some 100 years ago to become a regional transport hub today.  Through its photo gallery, the public will see the milestones of aviation development in Hong Kong, such as the first powered flight in 1911, the official establishment of CAD in 1946, the overnight relocation of the Hong Kong International Airport in 1998, the Guinness world records achieved by the Hong Kong aviation community in 2011, and the commissioning of the new CAD Headquarters in 2012.

Information on other disciplines of aviation is also presented to enhance visitors’ knowledge of aviation matters, such as:

  •   Aviation development in Hong Kong
  •   Roles of Civil Aviation Department
  •   Global cooperation
  •   Worldwide network
  •   Aircraft model gallery
