Singapore Technologies (ST) Aerospace launched a new $26.6 million centre on Wednesday that will provide a range of services from pilot training to aircraft maintenance, in tandem with its business diversification in recent years.
The three-storey centre at Seletar Aerospace Park can accommodate up to 11 single-aisle aircraft and 24 general aviation aircraft which include business jets.
While ST Aerospace continues to offer mainly aircraft maintenance and repair services, it has expanded its business to include executive as well as medical air charter services, and pilot training.
With the new centre, ST Aerospace will be better able to capture opportunities in the growing Asia-Pacific market, said Mr Lim Kok Kiang, assistant managing director, Economic Development Board.
He said: "Singapore is strongly committed to the aerospace industry, and will continue to invest heavily in developing infrastructure, talent and a conducive business environment for the industry to thrive."
The new facility was officially opened by Senior Minister of State for Transport, Mrs Josephine Teo.
