Changi Airport is widely recognised as one of the world’s best international airports. Singapore Airlines is also one of the top airlines in the world. Building on our strengths as an air hub, Singapore has developed a leading aerospace industry that includes maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), manufacturing and other aerospace-related services. 

Today, there are over 100 aerospace companies in Singapore. We possess nose-to-tail capabilities that include airframe maintenance, engine overhaul, structural and avionics systems repair. These core competencies, coupled with our commitment to quality and safety, have made Singapore a recognised one-stop solutions provider for airlines’ maintenance and repair needs. 

This SkillsFuture Earn & Learn Programme (ELP) for the Aerospace sector is a 12-month work-study programme that includes a 2-month1 WSQ Higher Certificate in Aerospace course coupled with 10-month1 structured on-job-training.
