AAIS organised our second Networking session for the year on 21 May 2021. Albeit conducted amidst enhanced restrictions under Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), participants were in good spirits and took the opportunity to reconnect with industry colleagues and meet new faces.
The event kicked off with opening remarks by AAIS 2nd Vice President Mads Bondergaard, who provided thoughtful and insightful perspectives for the industry. “The darkest hour is before dawn” he said, reminding everyone to be mindful of mental health and well-being during these challenging times.
AAIS Management Committee member Desmond Goh then introduced attendees to three new AAIS members, namely Singapore Flying College (represented by General Manager, Captain Christopher Chan), Embraer Asia Pacific (represented by Augustine Tai, Services & Support Director (Asia Pacific)) and Ryan Griffin (represented by co-founder Woo Jungsoo).
This was followed by a break out session for all participants to network. Many interesting discussions were had and new connections made. AAIS Chief Executive Sia Kheng Yok then capped the event off with a BYOB toast. We thank everyone for making the time for a lively and interesting session!
