Flight in HONG KONG


Recommended Posts

I'll be visiting Hong Kong for a couple of days this week. I would love to take a helicopter for a fly around the island, but my pilot's licence is American.

 

What I've done in other countries is to fly as a student pilot, and have an instructor ride with me. That works very well, as they know about the local airspace, where to fly etc. In fact, I did this yesterday in Sydney - what better way to see the place than as a pilot of your own sightseeing flight! But so far I haven't managed to track down a flying school in HK.

 

Does anyone have any ideas about how I could do this, and who I should contact?

 

I may not check back into this site, and if anyone does have a top idea I'd be really grateful if they could drop me a line on angus_rodger@hotmail.com

 

Many thanks!

Hong Kong Aviation Club is the only place that does flight training in Hong Kong.

 

HKAC

 

Slots are tight as they only get use of a military field on the weekends. (+ that's when people are off work).

 

Don't know much more...I suspect that it would be pretty difficult to just do a 1-off trail flight...however, I guess they must do them.

 

There is one member of the club (not me) who frequents these forums. I won't disclose his name, but maybe he'll read this and feel like contacting you.

 

Regards,
