The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Student Branch at HKUST (AIAA@HKUST) successfully organized the Seattle Aviation Tour 2019 during 18-28 January 2019. This tour was sponsored by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Hong Kong Airlines, and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
The group was very fortunate to be granted the opportunity to visit several Boeing Commercial Airplanes facilities in Washington State - including the factory floor of the Everett Factory (747/767/777/787 production) and the Renton Factory (737 production).
Students also had the rare opportunity to have a sneak peek at the first four flight-test airframes of the upcoming Boeing 777X at the Everett Factory.
