Air Operator's Certificate

An aircraft registered in Hong Kong may not fly for the purpose of public transport unless the operator holds an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) granted by Director-General of Civil Aviation. For the grant of an AOC the Director-General of Civil Aviation will take into consideration of the applicant's previous conduct and experience, his equipment, organisation, staffing, maintenance and other arrangements. Details of the requirements leading to the grant of the AOC are contained in the publication CAD 360 AOC Requirements Document. It could be downloaded at
