It includes non-precision approaches, wind shear and turbulence, wildlife strikes and runway incursions. The presentation will give a brief overview of each area and suggest some present and future solutions, which would aid pilots to avoid or to mitigate these hazards. It also illustrates some of the hazard counter-measures introduced at the Hong Kong International Airport.
