Aviation Exploration Day Details
To nurture our young generations’ interest in aviation, HKYAA offers secondary school students a valuable opportunity to gain exposure to the world of aviation through a one-day program - Aviation Exploration Day (AED). This event provides students with a taste of the core concepts covered in our year-long course.
The event consists of the following elements:
1. Classroom learning
The day begins with two lessons on the Principle of Flight and Basic Aviation Knowledge.
2. Computer-based simulator flying
Students will get hands on experience and train their hand-eye coordination by flying an approach and landing with our computer-based simulator.
To explore the real aviation world, we have organized short visits to some aviation organizations. In the past, we have visited the Educational Path in Civil Aviation Department and the Headquarters of Cathay Pacific Airways.
4. Group Exercise
Flying an airplane safely is about leadership and teamwork. A Line-Oriented Group Exercise offers students the chance to simulate pilot roles in the cockpit. They will face some inflight situations as a group, such as communicating with air traffic control, handling the weather challenges, dealing with passenger issues, and solving unforeseen problems.
5. Career Sharing
We will invite various current aviation professions like airline pilots, aero engineers and air traffic controllers to share their career opportunities.
6. Students Sharing
Students are asked to share their learning experiences at the end of the day. Prizes and certificates will then be presented.
The whole day is packed, but is also fun and educational. It will surely be a great introduction to aviation for the young individuals.
