Hong Kong Air Cargo Partners with HKIAA to Foster Next-Generation Cargo Pilots (僅英文版本)

On 11 April 2024, Hong Kong Air Cargo (HKAC) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (HKIAA), marking a significant step towards nurturing future talents for the local aviation industry.

This collaboration aims to provide HKIAA’s Cadet Pilot Program graduates with interview opportunities and establish a robust talent pipeline for the industry. Given the promising prospects for airline pilots in Hong Kong and the mainland, this initiative is timely and crucial.

Under the MoU, HKAC will offer preliminary job interviews to students of the Cadet Pilot Programme towards the end of their six-month (780 hours) Theoretical Knowledge Instruction course. This opportunity paves the way for potential employment upon successfully completing the integrated training programme.

The MoU was signed by Captain Clifford Hung, President cum Chief Operations Officer of HKAC, and Mr Simon Li, President of HKIAA. The signing was witnessed by Captain Adrian ARUL, Director of Flight Operations of HKAC, and Captain Jack IP, Director of Flight Training and Engineering of HKIAA.

Captain Clifford Hung, President cum Chief Operations Officer of HKAC, said, “This collaboration with HKIAA is a testament to Hong Kong Air Cargo’s commitment to investing in the future of the aviation industry. We are excited to provide a platform for aspiring pilots to launch their careers and contribute to Hong Kong’s status as a leading international cargo airport. We look forward to welcoming these talented individuals into our team and supporting their journey in the aviation industry.”

Mr Simon LI, President of HKIAA, remarked, “HKIAA is pleased to have HKAC become our first air cargo partner airline. Our first class of Cadet Pilot Programme students will have more options for their job preliminary interviews in May, in addition to our passenger airlines partners. We hope this additional opportunity will inspire talents to join the air cargo airlines, reinforcing the status of Hong Kong International Airport as the world’s business international cargo airport.”
