The Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA) has opened its fourth specialised aviation training school. The School of Civil Aviation Safety and Security will develop and conduct innovative aviation safety and security training programmes to meet the industry’s training needs. The school is the first new school to be set up since the establishment of SAA’s three other schools in 1992.

“The new School will also help advance SAA’s facilitator role in the sharing of views and experience in aviation safety and security through the organisation of conferences and meetings. It has in its pipeline planned a number of major conferences to gather policy makers and professionals in the region and globally to address the latest challenges in safety and security,” according to Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

The school will have, at its onset, sixteen specialised aviation safety and security programmes tailored for both local and overseas participants. These programmes are designed to address current topical subjects such as safety oversight, safety management system, aircraft accident investigation and, aviation security and risk management.
