Discover a sustainable future in Aerospace Electronics

“No words can fully describe my exquisite experience while pursuing DASE at SP. Amiable lecturers who double as mentors, great friends, well-equipped facilities, an ideal learning environment, international attachment to an aviation company, a broad-based curriculum -- all these have prepared me well for work and further study.”

How has the DASE course benefited you in pursuing for a Private Pilot Licence?

An eye-opener because I have always wanted to learn how to fly a plane.
Built a strong foundation in me in the understanding of the operations of aircraft electronics and instrument systems.

When I am flying with the Singapore Youth Flying Club, this knowledge helps me to understand my aircraft inside out especially in the troubleshooting of instruments and performing emergency procedures.

Every lesson taught in the DASE modules was like a confident flight
