The 12th meeting of the Liaison Group on Weather Information for General Aviation was held on 27 October 2016. This year, we had the pleasure of the Hong Kong Paragliding Association joined the meeting as a new group member. In the meeting, the ideas to enhance the ‘Weather Forecast for Local Aviation’ service as well as ideas on training and education with a view to promoting aviation meteorology were discussed.
The Liaison Group on Weather Information for General Aviation was founded in 2005 with the aim of serving as a forum for direct exchange of views on weather services for general aviation. Members of the liaison group include representatives from the local general aviation community. An annual meeting is convened to review and explore opportunities to improve the weather services for general aviation.
