Hong Kong Government Flying Service - Challenger 605
« on: August 09, 2020, 02:41:35 PM »
Haven't found these anywhere, but they've been around for a few years and are based at HKG: two Bombardier Challenger 605 for Hong Kong Government Flying Service, B-LVA och B-LVB (identical except for the reg as far as I can tell). I would happily create some simple flightplans for them if someone painted them (very little tracking data available but they fly almost exclusively in and out of VHHH and patrol the waters around the Pearl Delta but have occassionally been spotted at Zhuhai. I would assume that they also sometimes fly to Macau and Shenzhen and possibly the smaller Shek Kong Airfield in northern Hong Kong).

Chinese text on the fuselage: 政 府 飛 行 服 務 隊 and here's a closeup of it with the correct font from a different aircraft: https://img.mp.itc.cn/upload/20160815/7305b90e8bf546c0a992716fc7a653fb_th.jpg

And if someone's feeling adventurous, they also operate one Zlin 242 trainer (B-HRA), and while there's no AI model for that plane it's very similar to the Scottish Aviation Bulldog by JBAI. Have only found a few photos of it:
