Version 1 on Oct 05 OC 207 Sqn

Airport Authority

Civil Aviation Department is responsible for coordinating and monitoring all civil aviation activities in HK, which include: 1) airlines operations, 2) GFS operations, and 3) recreation flying activities

Structure of CAD
Headed by the director-general Mr. Norman LO Shung-man, JP There are 7 divisions in CAD: 1) Airport Standard Division 2) Flight Standard & Airworthiness Division 3) Air Traffic Management Division 4) Engineering & System Division 5) Air Service Division 6) Administration Division 7) Finance Division

Airport Standard Division


It is responsible for the licensing, regulation, inspection and monitoring of safety and security of aerodromes (including heliports) in Hong Kong and the monitoring of the safety standards and procedures of the Hong Kong air traffic control services.

Flight Standard & Airworthiness Division


It is responsible for regulating the operational safety and airworthiness of aircraft registered in Hong Kong.

Flight Information Region

Air Traffic Management Division


It is responsible for the provision of air traffic control, flight information service and alerting service within the Hong Kong Flight Information Region (FIR) as assigned by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) NOTAM provide information that is direct to operational significance and which may immediately affect aircraft operations, such as obstructions, navaid unserviceabilities, and aerodrome and airspace restrictions

Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) AIC is used to disseminate aeronautical information to aircrew. Usually the information is of an administrative nature and not directly concerned with the present conduct of airborne operations.

Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) The AIP consolidates relevant preflight information and inflight procedures of a lasting nature into a primary publication containing: aerodrome and ground aids, communication, meteorology, search and rescue, maps, air traffic rules and services, departure and approach procedures. back

Engineering & System Division


It is responsible for the planning, coordination, provision and subsequent maintenance / enhancements of the air traffic control (ATC) systems, radar, navigational aids and communication equipment for the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) at Chek Lap Kok (CLK).

Air Service Division


Hong Kong International Airport It is responsible for monitoring compliance by airlines with scheduled air services and regulating nonscheduled air services.

Hong Kong International Airport


Aerodrome reference point co-ordinates: 21 18 32 N 113 54 53 E

Hong Kong International Airport


It was opened on 02-July-1998. It has been operating since 06-July-1998. It has been designated as VHHH. Two parallel runways whose length and width are 3800m and 60m respectively are available.

Usual procedures during arrival and departure

ICAO Airspace classification


Class A - E : controlled airspace Class F - G : uncontrolled airspace The classes are fundamentally defined in terms of : 1) flight rules and 2) interactions between aircraft and Air Traffic Control (ATC).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airspace_classes

Arrival: 1) Immigration counter 2) Luggage claim 3) custom counter 4) arrival hall Departure: 1) Check-in in departure hall 2) Immigration counter 3) security check 4) wait for the aeroplane at boarding gate

Key concepts of airspace classification


1) Separation: Maintaining a specific minimum distance between an aircraft and another aircraft or terrain to avoid collisions. 2) Instruction: A direction given by ATC that an aircraft is obliged to follow.

Key concepts of airspace classification


3) Clearance: Permission for an aircraft to proceed with an action at the pilot's discretion. 4) Safety alert: A warning given by ATC that a collision may be imminent, usually based on radar observation.

Class A airspace All operations must be conducted under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) and are subject to ATC clearances and instructions. ATC separation is provided to all aircraft.

Class C airspace
Operations may be conducted under IFR, SVFR, or VFR; however, all aircraft are subject to ATC clearances and instructions. ATC separation is provided to all aircraft operating under IFR or SVFR and, as necessary, to any aircraft operating under VFR when any aircraft operating under IFR is involved. All VFR operations will be provided with safety alerts and, upon request, conflict resolution instructions.

Class F airspace Operations may be conducted under IFR or VFR. ATC separation will be provided, so far as practical, to aircraft operating under IFR.

Class G airspace Operations may be conducted under IFR or VFR. ATC separation is not provided.

Concept of Airspace

Landing charges for an aeroplane on VHHH HK$2210 for an aeroplane whose MTOW does not exceed 20 tonnes. Extra charge of HK$63 per 1 tonne will be added if the MTOW exceeds 20 tonnes. Air navigation services charges HK$4.8 per NM flown in Hong Kong FIR

ILS categories at VHHH


At VHHH, pilots are to expect an ILS/DME CAT I approach unless otherwise informed. If the visibility is less than RVR 550 m or a cloud ceiling is less than 200 ft., ILS/DME CAT II or III will be employed.
