AsBAA协会主席查理 穆拉斯基(Charlie Mularski)就该活动发表讲话:“就像我在开幕演讲上提到的,举办此次活动对AsBAA来说就有点像是冒险。但是我们非常高兴此次晚宴非常成功,我们收到了各方积极的反馈。我们非常自豪地接待了以下贵宾:香港民航处(HKCAD)处长罗崇文先生(Norman Lo)、国际商务航空理事会(IBAC)董事长爱德华 兹库尔特先生(Kurt Edwards)、香港航空业协会(HKAIA- HK)主席张谦博士(Angus Cheung)、美国国家商务航空协会(NBAA)代表伊夫林 吴女士、奥比斯的玛丽 刘女士。这次晚宴从各方面讲都是一个巨大的成功:宾朋满座,既庆贺了业界的明星,又回报了我们工作所在的社区。

庆祝晚宴在美丽而又富有历史意义的香港前水警总部大厦举行,晚宴上举行有几个专题报告、颁奖典礼、奥比斯的“现场宣誓”和为二百四十位宾客准备的娱乐活动。AsBAA颁发了商务航空十一余类奖项,还包括最佳女飞行员奖和迈克·戴维斯(航空贡献)奖。AsBAA副主席戴维 贝斯先生(David Best)说:“投票票数非常接近,由于AsBAA会员最后时刻的一小阵儿投票,今晚甚至会有一些特别的惊喜。 我们努力确保投票过程公平透明。有几个类别的奖项中,选票确实非常接近! 我想我们明年将会看到竞争更加激烈,以夺得这些令人梦寐以求的奖杯。这些奖杯完全是根据功绩评定。我代表AsBAA向所有2015年获得奖杯的优胜者表达最热烈的祝贺!”gala3

了亚洲一个多样化而又活跃的社区,所以重要的是每个地区都能得到认可。我们希望可以很快宣布下届2016年颁奖活动的地点。我们期待,这一事件能在商务航空年度日程表上成为引人注目的焦点。

奥比斯的代表刘敏仪女士(Mary Lau)说:“我代表奥比斯,感谢AsBAA和亚洲商务航空社区的支持。非常感谢在AsBAA慈善庆祝晚宴上各位宾客的慷慨解囊。筹集的这25万港元将对亚洲可避免性失明的患者的生活产生巨大的影响。

AsBAA, the Asian region’s non-for-profit representative body for business aviation, held its Inaugural Industry Awards at a glittering black tie gala dinner event at Hullett House, Hong Kong, Friday 6 November. The awards event, which was attended by several VIPs also served as a charity fundraiser for AsBAA’s chosen charity, Orbis – raising over HKD250k to support Orbis’ operations and activities in the region.

gala1 AsBAA Chairman, Mr. Charlie Mularski said of the event: “As I mentioned in my opening speech, holding this event was somewhat of a gamble for AsBAA; but we could not be more delighted with the success of the evening, and the positive feedback that we have received. We are enormously proud to have hosted the VIPs: Mr. Norman Lo Director General of HKCAD, Mr. Kurt Edwards Director General of IBAC, Dr. Angus Cheung President of HKAIA- HK Aviation Industry Association, Ms. Evelyn Wu, NBAA representative, and from Orbis, Ms. Mary Lau. The evening was a great success all round, a sell-out event in which we can celebrate the stars of the industry, and also give back to the community in which we all operate.”

The Gala Dinner was hosted in the beautiful and historic Hullet House, where the evening featured several presentations, the awards ceremony, a “live pledge” for Orbis, and entertainment for the 240 guests. The AsBAA Awards were presented over 11 categories of business aviation, and also included a Best Woman of Aviation Award, and the Mike Davis (contribution to aviation) award. AsBAA Vice-Chairman, Mr. David Best said: “The voting was incredibly close, and there were even some surprises on the evening in terms of the final awards due to a flurry of last minute votes from AsBAA members. We worked very hard to ensure the voting
process was fair and transparent, and for some categories, it was very close indeed! One thing I think we’ll see next year is an even fiercer battle to secure these coveted trophies, which are awarded entirely on merit. On behalf of AsBAA, I would like to say a big ‘congratulations’ to all the winners from 2015!’

AsBAA Vice-Chairman Mr Kevin Wu shared, “An enjoyable, and memorable evening was had by all, which would not have been possible without the fantastic support of the industry. I would like to recognise our sponsors: Bombardier Aerospace, Dassault Falcon, Lufthansa Technik, CIT, AON, and Hong Kong BellaWings for their support, and of course all the guests, and AsBAA members for their involvement. It was good to see recognition from across the whole region this evening. AsBAA represents a diverse and dynamic community in Asia, so it’s imporgala3tant that each region is recognised. We hope to announce the location of the 2016 awards very soon, and we look forward to making this event a big hit on the annual business aviation calendar.”

Orbis representative, Ms. Mary Lau said: “On behalf of Orbis, I would like to thank AsBAA and the business aviation community in Asia for its support. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of the guests at the AsBAA Charity Gala Dinner. The HKD250k raised will make a significant difference in the lives of those with avoidable blindness in Asia.”
