Aviation Safety Competition 2018 – Safety in Flight

By | 10 May 2018
Overview

The Aviation Safety Competition is a Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE) initiated project. This project aims to reach out to students from schools, polytechnics, colleges and universities, generating interest in aviation and encouraging them to consider careers in the aviation industry. Our mission is to build an aviation culture for our Next Generation of Aviation Professionals.

This year, with the theme “Safety in Flight”, it will be the fourth competition of the series. The program is to launch in 2018 with a series of lectures conducted by industry experts and senior practitioners from agencies dealing with aviation safety, navigation and MRO. Visits to aviation facilities would also be scheduled for participants to get a feel of real-life aircraft and airport operations. Case studies will be included in lectures. Students in teams of 3 to 5 will be given a scenario of flight in which an unanticipated event arises for case analysis and presentation. The entire program culminates with a contest in Nov 2018. Judges will select up to 5 short-listed entries for the final presentation. The Award Ceremony is scheduled in Nov 2018.

Award Ceremony

The award ceremony was on 13 Dec 2018 at Air Force Museum in Paya Lebar Airbase, the 6 finalist teams presented their assessments and recommendations of a difficult situation on the flight line that was posted to them. The overall consensus by the panel was that the teams had researched and prepared well for the presentations. They demonstrated their understanding of flight safety and presented their analysis from different but interesting perspectives ranging from technical/engineering, economical and human behavioral aspects. It was most encouraging to hear from the students and to feel their enthusiasm in aviation topics.
