Fulfilling Pilot Demand in Asia

International partnership provides flight training to Asia Campus students

As the Asia Pacific region faces an estimated need for more than 250,000 new pilots over the next 20 years, Embry-Riddle has teamed with Singapore Airlines to provide a one-of-a-kind, joint-campus, two-continent degree program.

The new flight minor, which launched in June, provides flight training to Embry-Riddle Asia Campus students and establishes a pathway to potential commercial pilot jobs at Singapore Airlines.

Students will fulfill academic requirements for a B.S. in Aeronautics at the Asia Campus in Singapore, and then spend their final year in the United States at Embry-Riddle’s campus in Daytona Beach, Florida, as part of an accelerated flight training program.

Upon completion of flight training and possession of a commercial pilot certificate with instrument and multi-engine ratings, the students will return to Singapore to complete the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore licensing requirements and to interview for potential employment with Singapore Airlines.
