CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Limited has gained approval from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HK CAD) to conduct integrated training for the issue of Hong Kong CAD Commercial Pilot Licences.

CTC is the only airline pilot training organisation in New Zealand, and only the second outside of Hong Kong, to be granted such an approval. It includes the ability to deliver Hong Kong Airline Transport Pilot licence (ATPL) exams.

CTC and Dragonair cooperated together and worked closely with HK CAD to gain the approval to deliver training for the Dragonair Cadet Pilot Programme. This fully integrated training programme will see cadets selected, trained and placed as airline pilots directly with Dragonair.
