     Temasek Polytechnic's advanced Aviation course, the first of its kind in Asia, will equip students with specialised skills and knowledge. In the final year of the course students can select to specialise in either 'Aeronautical Science' or 'Airport & Airline Management'. The two distinct streams will equip the students with the tools they need to develop a career in a variety of disciplines within the aviation business, from managing a world class airport and understanding what it takes to run the best airline in the world, to learning to fly an aircraft as a commercial pilot.

     Students will learn how airline data is used for planning resources needs at an airport, forecasting demand for air service development, studying ground handling equipment needs and other key operational functions. Mario Hardy, Vice President Asia Pacific UBM Aviation and serving Chairman of the PATA Foundation expanded, "The new Aviation Management & Services programme will prepare students for a life-long career in Aviation. The skills and knowledge they will learn at Temasek Polytechnic will give them the advantage they need to be successful in this competitive market. We are delighted to be helping Temasek Polytechnic train the Aviation Leaders of the future."
