Chairman Message – Session 2019 / 2020

I am greatly honoured to have been re-elected Chairman of the Aircraft Division for Session 2019/20.  On behalf of the Division, I would like to take this opportunity to express particular gratitude to all of the Committee members and Industry Leaders for their support & valuable contribution.

One of my and my committee’s objectives during the forthcoming Session is to improve dialogue with members, and to continue to develop the value proposition of the Division for our members.  We will continue to use the Division’s website and to promote social media as a channel for communication, do follow me on Facebook at HKIE AC (AC Chairman).

The aviation industry is a very people-intensive business, and it remains a challenge to attract new talent to become aviation professionals, especially for engineering, maintenance, repair, and overhaul services. Co-operation between industry participants and professional institutions (such as ours) with local schools and universities is crucial for the industry’s development, especially in grooming new talent and adopting new technologies. We need to continue to improve the range, depth, and quality of our aircraft engineering services, and keep up-to-date in aircraft technology innovation.

The Aircraft Division will continue to act as the platform to organise learned society activities such as technical seminars, lectures, visits, etc., for our aircraft engineers and the Hong Kong public. Through Learned Society activities our fellow engineers will be able to exchange knowledge and ideas, and help society at large (and in particular its youth) to gain a better understanding of aviation and its contribution to Hong Kong’s society and economy.

I look forward to welcoming you to many of our Division’s activities during the coming year.

Ir. Dennis HUI King Wai

Chairman, Aircraft Division for Session 2019/20
