Mr Chung shared that he started his career with the Singapore Airlines (SIA) as an aircraft maintenance engineer and was sponsored by the company to complete his diploma at SP to become a fully qualified engineer. During the course of his work, he had the opportunity to interact with the SIA flight crew, and that piqued his interest in flying the aircraft he was working on.
