Message from the President

2012 is an important year to many of us. A group of enthusiastic aviators sharing the same dream came together and decided to realize this dream for the next generation of Hong Kong.

Quickly, the action was echoed throughout the aviation field in Hong Kong. Professionals from many sectors in the industry reached out their helping hands, together we formed the HONG KONG YOUTH AVIATION ACADEMY, HKYAA. Today, there are already more than 40 volunteer instructors in the HKYAA giving our best to the dream: To Inspire, To Teach.

Hong Kong people are famous for our diligence and smartness. Many youngsters have the potential and right qualities to take up a role in the aviation industry. HKYAA will inspire them, remove the bounds and help setting their potential free. HKYAA does not believe in spoon-feeding, it teaches students to look around, listen out, solve problems, express themselves and find their own ways to success.

HKYAA does not belong to one group of people, the success of it belongs to all the devoted instructors and students. I would like to use this opportunity to express my deepest appreciation for my colleagues in the HKYAA. Together, we make the future of Hong Kong Aviation. Together, we write the aviation history and year 2012 will be an important chapter in our children’s history books.

   Captain Patrick Lau, President, HKYAA
