A Tour around Seletar Aerospace Park: Things You Shouldn’t Miss!  

As someone who likes to travel and explore new technologies, I can confidently say that Merlion City has one of the best industrial park designs in the world. The way they incorporate nature into modern life creates an allure like no other. 

My personal favorite is the Seletar Aerospace Park which is located right on the northeastern side of Singapore. This park offers acres of fun aviation-related activities, restaurants, cafes, and work opportunities. 

Engineers and people with similar professions will also have a field day exploring the  leading aerospace companies such as GE Aviation and Airbus located within the vicinity. 

Let me tour you around Seletar Aerospace and show you what activities you can do around the park as well as what places you need to check out on your visit. 

Seletar Aerospace Park History

Seletar Aerospace Park History

Seletar was originally a land full of swamps, mangroves, coconut, and rubber plantations until the Straits Settlement government bought 240 hectares of land in 1923. This land was then given to the British Royal Air Force (RAF) as an air base in 1930. 

Aside from being one of the most important RAF stations in the Far East, Seletar also served as the first civil airport in Singapore before Kallang was established in 1937. It is the birthplace of Singapore’s air defense and holds significance in the country’s history. 

In 1971, the Seletar air base was split in two and the military facility remained in the eastern end under the direct supervision of the Singapore Armed Forces. Meanwhile, the western side of the base was leased out to civilians. 

In 2006, the Economic Development Board and JTC Corporation proposed a plan to turn Seletar into an aviation industrial hub. The master plan for the reconstruction of the air base wasn’t released until June 26, 2007. 

The reconstruction gave Seletar a longer runway and brought opportunities to upgrade the avionics system that would give bigger aircraft access to the airport. 

Additionally, the master plan opened doors for training schools and manufacturing companies to build their infrastructures inside the facility. With such developments, Seletar Aerospace Park brought over 10,000 job opportunities to the public. 

What I love about Seletar Aerospace Park is that despite the major renovation it faced, it still managed to conserve its natural trees and historical relics such as the buildings and the air crafts.
