The Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA) was established in 1958 as the training arm of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. It implements training programmes, which conform to ICAO’s standards and recommended practices, to meet both national and international needs for both operational and top-level management personnel.
Through its four specialised schools:
- School of Aviation Management
- School of Aviation Safety & Security
- School of Air Traffic Services
- School of Airport Emergency Services
SAA has trained over 80,000 participants from over 200 countries and territories since 1958.
By consistently staying ahead of developments taking place in international civil aviation, SAA is able to develop new programmes not readily available elsewhere. SAA also offers degree and graduate diploma programmes through alliances with reputable national and overseas academic institutions.
The Academy provides a forum for information sharing and networking amongst the managers and specialists in the international civil aviation community, by organising workshops, conferences and seminars regularly. It also hosts numerous international meetings and conferences organised by international organisations such as ICAO, APEC and ACI.
