The Singapore aerospace and UAS community came together for the first HOST Networking session of the year held on 2nd February 2023 at the Grand Mercure Roxy. With over 80 aerospace professionals in attendance, the event, held in conjunction with the Lunar New Year, was certainly a fantastic opportunity for networking and discussions.

AAIS Chief Executive Sia Kheng Yok kicked off the evening by addressing members in attendance and highlighting important and exciting events and projects in 2023, which is the 20th anniversary of AAIS. He also took the opportunity to introduce new members of AAIS and the UAS community, as well as government agency representatives who were present at the event.

A highlight of the evening was the customary “tossing of the salad” or Lo-Hei for good fortune which added to the festive atmosphere. The diverse mix of attendees from across the sector including academia, SMEs, MROs, suppliers, service providers, etc. provided quality networking opportunities and sparked engaging discussions. The evening came to a close on a high with a lucky draw which saw 5 lucky winners.

We thank Workforce Singapore for co-sponsoring this event and would like to encourage members to find out more about the manpower support programmes for the aerospace industry offered by WSG, including the Career Conversion Programme for New Hires, Job Redesign, and Capability Transfer.
