Director-General of Civil Aviation

Welcome to the homepage of the Civil Aviation Department (CAD). From here you can visit our various divisions and understand how the department regulates the civil aviation activities at Hong Kong.

Apart from the regulatory role, CAD also act as an air navigation service provider and provides air traffic control services to all aircraft operating in and out of Hong Kong International Airport and within the Hong Kong Flight Information Region (FIR). Please click here to view the Hong Kong FIR map.

At FAQs you can find frequently asked questions and answers on  civil aviation matters. These include some general rules and regulations plus application procedures for some licenses and permits.

Although we cannot include everything about CAD in this website, we do intend to provide some useful information to the public. I hope that you will enjoy visiting our website. Should you have any comments, please drop us a note by E-mail on enquiry@cad.gov.hk(Open with new window). Bon Voyage!
