Event Details

The aviation industry has nearly returned to its pre-pandemic level with many airlines back to profitability. However, new challenges such as heightened inflation, tight labour markets and global supply chain disruptions may hamper the industry's recovery. The aviation industry is also expected to make sweeping changes to reduce carbon emissions and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

The Singapore Aerospace Technology Leadership Forum (SATLF) 2024 is a premier Forum that will bring together eminent speakers from leading aerospace companies to share their industry insights and thought leadership on research and technology development for the future of aerospace.

SATLF 2024 will see leaders examining the industry's trajectory and the future of aerospace through two pivotal themes: "Smart Aerospace" and "Net Zero 2050".
