It is one of those things you enjoyed doing and felt great after doing it. This is how I feel right now whilst putting up this post. In the afternoon, I gave an hour of lecture to enthusiastic students who have signed up for the inaugural Aviation Safety Competition (ASC).
The part that I really felt good about was the conversations with many of the students during the tea break. Their passionate stories and their desire to contribute to the blossoming aviation sector of Singapore’s economy resonate with me and my two other colleagues.
The Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE) and the Singapore Space and Technology Assocation (SSTA) are jointly organising the ASC with the common objective to encourage students to consider careers in aviation. Building the Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) is crucial for the growth and success of Singapore’s aerospace industry.
The ASC is enjoying a very encouraging start. The 160 participants of the competition are entitled to a series of seminars and lectures and an insider industry talk by professionals in the aviation industry. In addition, exclusive visits to major organisations in the aviation industry are being arranged so as to provide a first hand experience.
Do your friends a favour, especially those with an interest in aviation … and share this story with them. The ASC 2013 competition is now closed, but keep a watch out for the next competition, ASC 2014. Details of the competition will be issued sometime in September.
