Aircraft at Seletar Aerospace Park
 No BA aircraft on Singapore Register
 Either “N”, “VP” or “VH” registered
6
Developing SGAR
 Adopt ICAO Standards
 Must protect third parties
 Acceptable level of safety for passengers
• Passenger would not enjoy same level of
safety as fare-paying passenger in
commercial air transport
 Maximum freedom of actions

Who is responsible?
 Owner or Pilot-in-Command must assume
responsibility for safety of operations for less
complex aircraft.
 For more complex aircraft, the operator must
assume responsibility.

Safety Oversight
 BA may be commercial or Corporate
 For corporate owned:
• Do not have organisation structure similar to
that of commercial air transport
• May have flight ops department
• Allow the owner/operator to contract the full
engineering and maintenance activities –
owner/operator retain responsibility

Inbound Aircraft
 Streamline Procedures
 Speed up Approval processes
11
Emerging Issues
 Continuous refinement
 Types of ownership
• Group
• Fractional

Types of Ownership
• Group Ownership – 1 Aircraft may be owned by
several owners. Identify 1 owner to be accountable
=> Private aircraft.
• Fractional Ownership – Multiple owners have a
pooling agreement by which aircraft is shared.
Management company will run the operations
and functions typical of an operator.

CONCLUSION
Regulatory
and
safety
oversight
requirements are robust and biz-friendly
Continuous review and refinement to keep
pace with industry
Other aspects in growing
business aviation
