Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 1 December 2009

Cathay Pacific Airways has opened applications for its fourth I Can Fly programme, inviting 100 Hong Kong young people with a passion for aviation and social services to enjoy an informative educational experience.

I Can Fly was launched in 2003 and has given some 3,000 local young people the opportunity to learn more about various aspects of the aviation industry and at the same time develop a sense of commitment to their community through various social service activities.

A number of changes have been instigated for the latest programme, which begins in February and runs through until summer 2010. More in-depth and out-of-classroom learning opportunities will be offered this time around with a wider variety of activities and overseas learning experiences.

Major activities for the 2010 I Can Fly include a three-day training camp, enhanced ground-school training that will cover both flight operations and inflight services, visits to key aviation facilities at the Hong Kong International Airport, a photography workshop, and a self-designed social service programme. All members will also have the opportunity to enjoy an overseas educational experience.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Affairs Quince Chong said, Cathay Pacific takes its corporate social responsibility commitments very seriously and the I Can Fly programme is one of our most important activities within the Hong Kong community. The programme has been revamped to ensure members receive a more comprehensive understanding of the aviation industry as well as developing a greater sense of community involvement. We hope we can bring these 100 young people closer to their dreams.

People aged 15 to 18 must submit their application to Cathay Pacific on or before 25 December 2009.
