As HAITE Group’s first aviation training center outside of China, HAITE Singapore is the group’s international headquarters and also the first major investment by a Chinese aerospace company in Singapore. “The HAITE Group is always on the lookout for new ways to grow our business, said Mr. Li Biao, Chairman of HAITE Group. “Singapore was a strategic move to extend our international reach. We’ll continue to cultivate steady progress in the areas of aviation MRO, R&D and training, so as to provide our customers with excellent, well-rounded services and products that they’ve come to associate with HAITE.”

Alongside the unveiling of the facility, HAITE Singapore today reveals a new partnership with Baltic Aviation Academy (BAA), through which both parties will collaborate to offer a suite of dry and wet courses to commercial airlines in Southeast Asia. The cooperation with BAA complements HAITE Singapore’s existing training programs, and increases BAA’s presence in this region.
Valued at S$95.3 million, the six-story HAITE facility in Singapore is equipped with new, state-of-the-art training devices, including the Boeing B737-800W Series 7000 Full Flight Simulator, Airbus A320 Series 7000 Full Flight Simulator, and Airbus A320 Integrated Procedure Trainer (IPT). Apart from the currently-installed equipment, HAITE Singapore expects to expand its facility progressively over the next five years to its full seven-bay capacity, which would enable it to provide close to 50,000 hours of training per year.
