Over the next two years, the Singapore aerospace sector will create 1,000 jobs


According to Second Minister for Trade and Industry Tan See Leng, Singapore’s aerospace businesses are looking to fill 1,000 vacancies over the next two years.
Data analysts, robotics and automation engineers, and aircraft technicians are available in sectors such as digital services and autonomous technology.
During the Covid-19 epidemic, travel prohibitions and border restrictions throughout the world grounded planes and significantly cut demand for commercial aviation travel, according to Dr Tan, the Manpower Minister. The aerospace industry has been particularly hard impacted, as it mostly supports commercial aircraft.
However, at the opening of the third Aerospace Day, an industry showcase organised by JTC and its partners, he said that Singapore has maintained a strong foundation of aerospace operations and that firms have been exploring new paths of growth.
“The aviation sector will revive as we emerge from the epidemic,” Dr Tan said. “The aerospace sector has a favourable long-term prognosis.”
He stated that aerospace firms in Singapore are eager to employ personnel to capitalise on these possibilities.
Pratt and Whitney, an American aerospace company, is hiring 250 personnel in Singapore for its maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) activities.
This year, GE Aviation is looking to fill 200 roles, while Singapore Aero Engine Services (Saesl) has 170 openings for its expanding MRO operations, including 100 technicians and 70 new trainees.
Dr Tan also highlighted three long-term development prospects for aerospace businesses in Singapore: digital services, autonomous flying systems, and sustainable aircraft propulsion.
