Captain Daniel Wong, Head of the Mentorship Programme at The Club, said, “The pilots and aviation professionals from The Club will share their extensive knowledge and vast experience from working in the industry over the years with the students, to help them choose their career path. We are grateful for this opportunity to work with HKU SPACE and contribute to the future generation of aviation professionals in Hong Kong.”

The Club was established in 2021 with a mission to provide education in aviation, a social venue and a meeting place for aviation professionals and for those who are passionate about flying. The Club is scheduled to open its doors in December this year and will be situated in Central with facilities including meeting rooms, a lounge, dining room and a simulator.
