Today marks a historical and record-breaking moment in Hong Kong aviation history – Inspiration is about to become Hong Kong’s FIRST homebuilt and locally registered aircraft to complete a Round the World journey with Hong Kong as the starting and ending destination. With a local registration “B-KOO”, Inspiration will be travelling around the world during August to November 2016. Inspiration will fly across all meridians, most latitudes outside the Arctic and Antarctic circle
It took 7 years for the Americans to go to the Moon, but it has taken 8 years for Hank and the Inspiration team to build the FIRST homebuilt and locally registered aircraft in Hong Kong, and commence the Round-the-World (RTW) journey. With Captain Hank Cheng at the controls, backed by Flight Engineer Gary Tat, B-KOO Inspiration has taken off from Hong Kong International Airport today (28-Aug) morning. Before departure, Hank exclaimed, “This is the day finally! Hat off to ever
We are excited to announce that Captain Hank Cheng will pilot Inspiration (B-KOO), Hong Kong’s FIRST homebuilt and registered aircraft, to commence the Round the World (RTW) journey on 28-Aug (Sun).

As a final preparation for this historical moment, the Inspiration team met HKCAD today (25-Aug) to finalize the aircraft departure arrangements
