Welcome to The Hong Kong Youth Aviation Academy 

Towards the end of 2011, a group of Hong Kong airline pilots identified the need to bridge the gap between students graduating from university and their first step towards establishing an aviation career. An affordable professional training package at the completion of tertiary education serves as a solid platform for Hong Kong youths to launch their career in the aviation industry.

Hong Kong Youth Aviation Academy or HKYAA was formed to carry this mission forward and the founding members of this organisation have all benefited tremendously from the opportunities offered here in Hong Kong. They all have the same conviction to help the next generation begin their careers by volunteering their spare time to conduct various formal courses and to share their professional experience.
