Seletar Flying Club is a non-profit aero club located in Seletar Airport, Singapore. It provides recreational flying activities and allow members to undertake flying lessons to attain a Private Pilot License.

Over the years, the club house have been moved from the western side of Seletar Airport, to the eastern side near the maintenance hangars.[1] In 2011, the club once again moved to its current location at the new Business Aviation Complex with a commanding view of the airport apron area. [2] The current club house is equipped with a member's lounge, which is popular with members for meetups, a classroom for ground school/flight briefings and a dedicated station running flight simulator software.

Aircraft[edit]

In November 1988, just a year after its founding, the SIAFC negotiated with it's partner flying club a new agreement for the use of three two-seater trainer aircraft - two Piper Tomahawks and a Cessna 150, and three touring aircraft - two Cessna 172s and a Socata TB-10 Tobago, a reflection of the changing needs of it's membership. From 2017 to 2019, the flying club added a Piper PA28 to cater to increasing demand for navigation training and recreational flights from its members.

In August 2019, to replace our ageing Piper Warrior, Seletar Flying Club decided to dispose its sole Piper PA28 and subsequently acquired a Beechcraft Debonair C33 through a leasing agreement so as to cater for member's desire to learn and operate a faster general aviation aircraft.

Fleet[edit]

As of 1 July 2020, the Seletar Flying Club fleet consists of 2 Cessna 172 aircraft and 1 Beechcraft Debonair C33.[3]
