Preparations for the event began with an official kick-off in November 2022 at our seminar on ‘Developing a Sustainable Air Hub in Singapore’, featuring Mr Daniel Ng of CAAS and Ms Tan Yen Ling of SATS. AAIS coordinated the Singapore Pavilion and apart from administering the grants from Enterprise Singapore, our team visited the exhibitors to understand their interests in the lead-up to the show. We also worked with show organisers on curating speakers for the conference, and presented an exhibitor exclusive on the ‘Aviation Landscape – Singapore’. AAIS also moderated the ‘In conversation with CAAS’ session on Day 1 of the conference featuring Angela Ng, Director (Aviation Industry).
The release of the latest issue of Aerospace Singapore magazine, Vol 16 No1, was timed to coincide with the show, with the feature on ‘Future Air Hub’ penned by AAIS member and contributor, Alton Aviation Consultancy. The magazine also contained a special supplement highlighting the Singapore Pavilion exhibitor profiles. As a media ambassador for the show we also took pre-show and on-site media interviews to boost the Singapore aviation and AAIS brands.
Engagement with SAF Officers on Aerospace Careers
AAIS was pleased to be invited by the Singapore Ministry of Defence's Career Transition Resource Centre to speak with Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) officers about career transition opportunities in the civil aviation and aerospace industries. The event was held at Orchard Rendezvous Hotel on 22 February 2023.
AAIS Chief Executive shared the stage with speakers from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), ST Engineering and Eaton. His presentation covered an overview of the developments and future of the industry as well as resources available for officers to help them make informed decisions about career transition options. In between the sharing sessions, a networking tea break was scheduled for the SAF officers and corporate guests to connect and mingle.

Aerospace Singapore Feature: Future Air Hub
Air hubs have been a vital component of the aviation industry for decades, serving as central points in the implementation of hub-and-spoke airline models. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, undermined the basis of this notion, as international travel demand plummeted and protocols favoured point-to-point travel for commercial air passengers.
As the aviation industry looks towards recovery and the future, air hubs will face new challenges and opportunities. In this Aerospace Singapore feature, Alton Aviation Consultancy explains and illustrates the continued importance of air hubs in the post-pandemic era. The fundamental drivers, emerging trends and future-proofing strategies that will shape successful air hubs will also be explored.
