The Civil Aviation Department (Chinese: 民航處) is the Civil aviation authority of Hong Kong, headquartered in the Queensway Government Offices (金鐘道政府合署).[1] The department is responsible for providing air traffic control services to all aircraft operating within the Hong Kong Flight Information Region. It reports to the Transport and Housing Bureau of the Hong Kong Government. The current Director-General of Civil Aviation is Norman Lo.

The CAD was also responsible for managing the former Hong Kong International Airport at Kai Tak, until it was retired and replaced by the new Hong Kong International Airport managed by the Airport Authority.

The Accident Investigation Division of the CAD investigates aviation accidents and incidents.[2]

During British rule, CAD was not a sub-unit of the Civil Aviation Authority (United Kingdom). Since 1997, CAD maintains independence from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, although the CAAC has authority over the airspace within Hong Kong.[citation needed]
