Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited the Government Flying Service Headquarters to meet the management and staff of various grades and learn more about their work.   Mr Nip first took a helicopter ride at the department's helipad in Wan Chai, during which he participated in the aircrew's work in flight and watched a simulated coastal rescue.   He was pleased to learn that frontline aircrew conduct these simulated drills and training regularly in order to enhance emergency response capabilities and efficiency.   Mr Nip toured the hangar and the Air Command & Control Centre at the department's Chek Lap Kok headquarters, where he was briefed on the aircraft fleet, related equipment as well as maintenance activities, and how colleagues deployed aircraft and manpower in accordance with various operational needs and emergency responses.   The civil service chief then met Controller of Government Flying Service West Wu and directorate staff for an update on the work of various divisions and the challenges ahead.
