More than a showcase of aerospace technologies and advancements, this year’s Singapore Airshow was also one where new partnerships were forged.

Continuing its commitment towards ICAO’s No Country Left Behind initiative, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) signed new training agreements with the Civil Aviation Agency of the Republic of Macedonia (MCAA) and the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA). Under these agreements, CAAS will provide aviation training in Macedonia and Rwanda respectively.

Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General of CAAS said, “CAAS is pleased to work with the civil aviation authorities of Macedonia and Rwanda to design training programmes that suit their needs.”

These agreements will see SAA – the training arm of CAAS – jointly develop programmes to build new skills and expertise in areas that will support the growth of Macedonian and Rwandan civil aviation.
