font size    

Nine meteorologists from different countries completed on Friday an aviation meteorological services training course organized by the Hong Kong Observatory ( HKO).

The meteorologists were from Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kenya, Mongolia, Nepal, Niue Island, Republic of Korea, Tanzania, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Sospeter Muiruri, a participant from Kenya, said he had benefited considerably from the HKO's experience in the provision of aviation weather services.

"I am extremely impressed with the application of advanced technology by the Observatory, in particular the development of the windshear alerting system," he said.

The training course aims at improving aviation meteorological services all over the world. The course participants are expected to take Hong Kong's experience back to their own countries and contribute to the development of their own aviation weather services.

Scientific Officer of the HKO and one of the lecturers Chan Sai- tick said the course provided an excellent opportunity for HKO to share its experience with other countries and enhance the development of quality meteorological services for aviation.

This is the seventh professional training courses organized by HKO for the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). HKO colleagues are also playing key roles in international organizations such as the International Civil Aviation Organization and WMO.
