The AAIS was invited by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to participate in the Aviation Open House (AOH) 2011. The event was held at Downtown East from 3 to 5 November 2011, with Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister of State, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Transport as the Guest-of-Honour at the Opening Ceremony.

Apart from the main exhibition, the AOH aims to promote the industry to students by engaging them through career talks, site visits, and interactive activities such as simulator demonstrations, indoor kite-flying workshops and games. The event also showcased aeronautical students’ projects.

This year’s AOH had even greater significance as the industry celebrates 100 years of aviation in Singapore. Over 37 organisations from all sectors of the aviation industry, supporting government agencies and institutions of higher learning participated as exhibitors, with an estimated 10,000 visitors attending the three-day event.
