The Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore) was invited by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to participate in the Aviation Open House (AOH) 2017, which marked the fifth time that AAIS has been involved in this event. The theme for AOH 2017 was “Be the Future of Aviation” and was held from 24 to 26 August 2017 at the Suntec City Convention Centre. Minister for Education (Schools) and Second Minister for Transport Ng Chee Meng launched the event.
There were two initiatives launched that included the new Higher NITEC in Airport Operations and a renewed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Singapore Scout Association (SSA), as part of CAAS’ ongoing efforts to drive manpower development in the aviation sector.
This biennial event brings the aviation community together to showcase career and education opportunities in the dynamic aviation industry. Highlights of the event included the Central Showcase (which featured the Smart Digital Tower), an aviation recruitment fair with more than 700 job vacancies (held in partnership with the Employment and Employability Institute), Career and Education Talks by aviation companies, and interactive workshops that were conducted by STEM Inc and The Singapore Scouts Association.
The event saw the participation of more than 40 aviation-related organisations and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), as well as companies from the aerospace, airline, airport, air navigation services sectors.
AAIS used this outreach opportunity to distribute its AeroSpace Singapore magazine, which contains relevant information on trends and the latest developments of the aerospace industry, as well as encouraged students to take part in an online quiz to test their understanding of the Singapore industry.
The AAIS is honoured to be a part of AOH 2017 with contribution towards the future of Singapore Aviation Industry!
