CAD to hold exhibition of civil aviation development in Hong Kong

20-Mar-2006

In commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Aviation Department, the exhibition, "Development of Civil Aviation in Hong Kong", will be staged from March 23 to 28 at the Hong Kong Central Library.



Organised by the Civil Aviation Department (CAD), the exhibition traces the development of civil aviation in Hong Kong over the past six decades, focusing on airports, aircraft and the department, which was established in 1946.

The exhibition, which will include a collection of precious photographs and display of air traffic control equipment, will enable the public to enrich their knowledge of local civil aviation development and allow aviation enthusiasts to reminisce about the good old days.

A spokesman for the CAD said the six-day exhibition would also highlight the achievements of the department over the past 60 years. Through the exhibition, the department hopes to give the public a better understanding of its work, major developments and commitment to a safe and efficient air transport system.

The exhibition will be open from 10am to 8pm at Exhibition Gallery 5. Members of the public are welcome to visit the exhibition. Admission is free.

In connection with the exhibition, six lectures will be given on the theme "Professional Career Opportunities in Civil Aviation". Speakers will include representatives from the CAD, Cathay Pacific Airways and the Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited. The lectures will be held at the Lecture Theatre of the Hong Kong Central Library on March 23, March 27 and March 28. Free admission tickets will be distributed starting March 23 at the reception counter at Exhibition Gallery 5.
