Title says it all. I don't see this information online anywhere. A breakdown by PPL/CPL would be nice. I have a vague memory of someone telling me 300 but that seems a tad low for a city of 7.5 million.
I reached out to the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department and asked this question. To my surprise, I got an answer back in less than 12 hours.
As of December 31, 2014, they report:
- 219 private pilots
- 951 commercial pilots
- 4007 ATPL holders
- 20 MCPL holders
For a total of 5197 pilots licensed in Hong Kong.
