Singapore Airshow 2022 will live-stream 8 flying displays from Feb 15 to 18
The biennial event is closed to the public for its second time since the pandemic started.
The aerospace community is gearing up for the latest edition of the biennial Singapore Airshow, which will be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre on Feb 15 to Feb 18.
It will have eight flying displays and flypasts from four air forces and two commercial companies.
The largest in Southeast Asia, the airshow has been a platform for leading aerospace companies and high-level government and military delegations to forge partnerships and strategies.
Similar to its 2020 iteration, the airshow this year will primarily be for trade visitors on a by-invite basis, with strict health controls imposed.
In spite of the omission of public day programmes on-site, the airshow intends to livestream its aerial displays, a staple spectacle for most public goers in its pre-COVID-19 iterations.
The eight flying displays will be helmed by teams in the military and civil sectors, including United States Marine Corps and Indian Air Force.
“These stellar performances by our partners and exhibitors are testament to the recovery of the aerospace and aviation industry and we hope they will uplift spirits,” said Experia’s managing director Leck Chet Lam at a virtual panel discussion on Jan 26.
To accommodate the event, several adjustments had to be made to roads, paths and public transportation in its vicinity.
This includes the complete closure of paths like the Coastal Park Connector and vehicle roads like Changi Coast Road from Feb 10 to Feb 21.
The event will be broadcasted live on its Facebook page. The aerobatic flying displays will happen once a day, at 12.30pm on Feb 15 and 11.30am from Feb 16 to Feb 18.
