ICAO and Singapore renew commitment to aviation training

At the Changi Aviation Summit, ICAO Council President Salvatore Sciacchitano (pictured left) and Singaporean Minister of Transport Chee Hong Tat, signed a new Annex to the Singapore-ICAO Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Cooperation in Leadership and Management Training for SAA. The MoU provides for the development and delivery of up to seven runs of a refreshed ICAO-SAA Directors-General Programme on Aviation Safety over the next three years. This training programme targets Directors-General to help them better manage safety related challenges post-COVID and to provide a closed-door platform to discuss topical challenges.

To further extend the Singaporean Aviation Academy (SAA)’s outreach and contributions to ICAO’s effort to develop the next generation of aviation professionals, Minister Chee and President Sciacchitano also signed an MoU on Singapore-ICAO Next Generation Aviation Professionals Scholarship Programme. The Scholarship Programme is targeted at young aviation professionals from all regions aged 35 and younger, to provide them with a foundation on key aviation topics. There will be an annual intake of 10 scholars, who will have the opportunity to complete a 6-week programme at the SAA and an aviation company in Singapore within three years. Each SAA scholar will also be personally mentored by a SAA Senior Fellow.
