ST Aerospace's new Aviation Centre

ST Aerospace, the aerospace arm of ST Engineering has opened a new integrated training services hub at Seletar Aerospace Park. 

The new $26.6 million aviation centre will house a suite of air charter, ground training, flight training and support facilities. 

Speaking at the opening today, Senior Minister of State for Transport and Finance, Josephine Teo says there are strong growth prospects for air traffic in the Asia-Pacific. 

"Essentially, it's the region that is becoming increasingly affluent, travel will expand and therefore the opportunities for aviation hub and MRO will also increase." 

Mrs Teo's sentiments on opportunities for the aviation hub and Maintenance, Repair and Operations were shared by the Executive Vice President of Aviation and Training Services at ST Aerospace, Goh Yong Kiat. 

"You can see airlines are growing. Their fleet is expanding and certainly because of that, you'll need more pilots, need more technicians and engineers and an aviation centre like this is poised or positioned to meet this demand." 

The 3-storey building will be equipped with state-of-the-art computer based training and a simulator centre to support its pilot training academy.
