The Singapore Flying College, established in 1988, is an approved Flight Training Organisation in Singapore. Its primary objective is to provide Ab-initio flight training to pilots for the Singapore Airlines Group. The College, with its Head Office at Seletar Airport in Singapore and branch in Jandakot, Perth in Australia, also accepts the enrolment of self-sponsored candidates.
The Seletar Phase of training comprises ground school that delivers the ATPL subjects and some flight training that constitutes aptitude flight testing. Upon successful completion of the Seletar Phase, the cadets are sent to Australia to complete the majority of their flight training.
The College’s training fleet comprises 5 single-engine Cessna C172 in Seletar, 4 single-engine analogue and 9 Garmin equipped Cessna C172 and 3 Garmin equipped multi-engine Beech Baron aircraft in Jandakot for the Ab-initio Phase.
The Ab-initio training programme provided by the College takes approximately 18 months to complete. It is a rigorous programme that requires a high degree of effort from the cadet in order to successfully complete it.
Since its inception, the College has trained more than 1,900 cadets for the Singapore Airlines Group and since it began enrolling self-sponsored candidates in 2006, had inducted more than 30 self-sponsored candidates, many of whom have become airline pilots.
