Proud to be involved in Singapore Airshow for the first time: Indonesian pilot

Flying to Singapore is nothing new for Indonesian Jupiter pilot Captain Apri Arfianto, who has trained here six times, but the 32-year-old will be participating in the Singapore Airshow for the first time.

This week's airshow will be the Indonesian Jupiters' third international appearance - they have performed in Brunei and Malaysia previously.

"I'm very proud to take part in such a big Asian airshow... it's been my most challenging experience so far," said Captain Apri, who flies as the left wingman in his six-man squad.

To stay in tip-top physical condition, he makes sure that he has enough rest and goes for a brisk jog for about 15 to 20 minutes daily.
