“We aspire to provide our exhibitors and visitors with a better experience at each subsequent edition of the Singapore Airshow,” says Jimmy Lau, managing director of show organizer Experia Events. “We also continue to demonstrate our relevance to the industry by anticipating market trends and introducing new features, enabling our exhibitors and visitors to tap emerging markets and be updated on the latest products and technologies.”
Jet Aviation Singapore is constructing a new hangar at Seletar Aerospace Park slated to be completed in early February next year. The new 100,900-sq-ft structure will triple the size of the current facility, and it will have two floors providing 43,700 sq ft of space for shops and offices. The new facility will also add 100,965 sq ft of apron area.
The new construction, which is alongside Jet Aviation Singapore’s current maintenance and FBO operation, will be unveiled at an opening celebration at the Singapore Airshow in February.
Signature Flight Support officially opened its new FBO at Singapore Changi International Airport on Sunday, just two months after announcing its newest Asian location at EBACE 2013. This location marks the second facility in Asia for Signature. (The company has also invested in the Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre at Chek Lap Kok/Hong Kong International Airport.)
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), working with the Changi Airport Group, has introduced a number of new procedures on June 19 to ensure safe operations at Singapore’s Changi International Airport (WSSS). The efforts are specific to operations during low-visibility conditions resulting from recent severe haze caused by fires set to clear land in Sumatra. An extra one or two miles of separation will be added between arrivals, and the airport will keep runway lights on during daytime operations.
The Singapore Airshow is Asia’s largest aviation event and one of the three most important aerospace and defense exhibitions in the world. Held biennially, it is organized and managed by Experia Events. The 2014 event, to be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre February 11 to 16, will be the fourth since it started as Singapore Airshow in 2008, under the new organizers.

News highlights from the Singapore Air Show this week: Lockheed Martin announced a new version of the evergreen F-16 fighter designated F-16V. It includes the upcoming AESA radar upgrade as well as a new mission computer and cockpit display.
After an eventful 2011 that saw double-digit growth in passenger and aircraft numbers, Singapore is working to improve Changi Airport’s customer experience and global connections. “Despite continuing economic uncertainty and environmental factors, we continue to develop the hub,” according to Changi Airport Group (CAG) chief executive Lee Seow Hiang.
Another Singapore Airshow brings another aerial duet from the local air arm. Last time, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) paired a Lockheed Martin F-16 fighter with a Boeing AH-64 Apache in a novel fast-and-slow display. This time, an F-16 is in company with RSAF’s latest acquisition, the Boeing F-15SG Strike Eagle.
