About The Symposium

Its a collective effort

Jointly organised by Hong Kong Airline Pilots Association (HKALPA) and Hong Kong Air Traffic Control Association (HKATCA), this symposium serves as a platform for both parties to discuss operational issues in various aspects. With the continuous increase in aircraft movements, it is imperative that both pilots and air traffic controllers have an excellent understanding of what needs to be done to continue the safe and expeditious operation and also collectively explore what could be improved in the HKFIR.
