Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and SIA offer new flight minor and commercial pilot job opportunities

As the Asia Pacific region faces an estimated need of 253,000 new pilots over the next 20 years, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has teamed with Singapore Airlines to provide a joint-campus, two-continent degree program to provide flight training for the first time to its Embry-Riddle Asia campus students and secure job opportunities upon completion.

Embry-Riddle’s new Flight Minor will allow students to fulfill academic requirements for their Bachelor’s in Aeronautics (BSA) degree at the Embry-Riddle Asia Campus in Singapore and then spend their final year in the United States at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach, Fla., campus as part of an accelerated flight training program to earn the required flight time, instrument rating and certification.

Upon successful completion of the flight training and possession of a Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL) with instrument and multi-engine ratings, they will return to Singapore to complete the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) licensing requirements and be ready for potential employment with Singapore Airlines.
