ST Aerospace has opened its new aviation centre at Singapore's Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP), in the presence of guest of honour Singapore's Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Transport, Mrs Josephine Teo. With an expanded Seletar footprint occupying over 75,000 square metres, ST Aerospace becomes the second largest tenant and the only integrated aviation service provide in SAP.
This milestone is the result of a $26.6m, two-year effort to enhance ST Aerospace's Seletar capabilities in response to the growing international demand for aircraft maintenance, business aviation, air charter, commercial pilot training, as well as technical crew training services. ST Aerospace's current footprint in SAP includes hangars and facilities that can handle up to 11 narrow-body aircraft and 24 general aviation aircraft simultaneously.
The newly built complex is equipped with state-of-the-art computer-based training suites for Air Transport Pilot Licence and entry level ground training, as well as a simulator centre that can accommodate up to six full flight simulators. Two training devices were recently commissioned to support ST Aerospace's Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) phase II training. One of them is an Airbus A320 full flight simulator, and the other a customised fixed-base A320 FFT X™ - MPL simulator.
With the addition of the aviation centre, ST Aerospace will be expanding its technical crew training business in the next phase of development, which will add classrooms and computer-based training facilities in the complex.
