[Avionics Today 01-26-2016] Singapore Polytechnic has officially opened its Aerohub, which will house aeronautical and aerospace electronics engineering laboratories, along with facilities typically found in an industry aircraft hangar. The new facility will also synergize the teaching and learning activities for Singapore Polytechnic’s Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering (DARE) and Diploma Aerospace Electronics (DASE) students.
The opening of the AeroHub follows Singapore Polytechnic and Bombardier Business Aircraft’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed February 2014, to advance real-world training of students in aeronautical engineering in an effort to support engineering education, research and student development.
“The opening of the AeroHub is another signal that Singapore's aerospace cluster is flourishing, and directly supports our presence in and long-term commitment to the Asia Pacific region," said Andy Nureddin, vice president and general manager of customer services at Bombardier Business Aircraft.
Bombardier Business Aircraft has already opened its Singapore service facility for the Asia Pacific region, which is equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, modifications including interior refurbishment, avionics installations, and Aircraft on Ground (AOG) support for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.
