Poly students to pursue Private Pilot Licence in joint programme

Students enrolled in the Diploma in Aviation Management & Services at Temasek Polytechnic will soon pursue a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) as part of their three-year curriculum. This was made possible after the school established a partnership with the Singapore Youth Flying Club to offer a flying programme to third year students specialising in Aeronautical Science. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between both parties was signed on Tuesday. Under this partnership, selected students will undergo a six-month flying course, which will then earn them a PPL, which is the basic certification required of all pilots. They will also gain advanced knowledge in air navigation, flight planning and meteorological science, among other things. The first batch of students will begin the programme in April.
