The Singapore Airshow is Asia's largest aerospace and defence event and one of the top three airshows in the world. For anyone interested in the aviation industry, it is a chance to get up close to the newest aviation and aerospace technology. More than thirty civil and military jets will be on static display, including the A380 and several unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Tickets are now on sale, priced at S$20 for adults and S$8 for children. Members of the public can get the tickets at all SingPost outlets and Self-service Automated Machines (S.A.M) machines or online at http://www.singaporeairshow.com.sg/. They can also call the Global Ticket Network at 6334-4222.
Some 50,000 people are expected to attend the airshow at the Changi Exhibition Centre on February 23 and 24 (trade only between 19-22 Feb). Highlights include aerial displays by the Singapore Air Force's aerobatics team, The Black Knights, which will be making their first public appearance after eight years. Details of the displays will be available soon at the website above.
There is also a chance to be one of the first to take a ride on the Singapore Flyer, the huge observation wheel at Marina Bay waterfront. The official opening of the Singapore Flyer isn't until March 1st, but Singapore Airshow ticket-holders will get a 10% discount off the normal $29.50 ticket and can take a ride during the airshow week from 19 Feb til 22 Feb.
Organisers have taken note of complaints about long queues, traffic jams and tired feet. New technology and security will make ticketing quicker, there is a new six-lane road leading in and out of the exhibition centre, which should ease traffic problems, and 2,000 car spaces. There will also be buggies avaliable to ease the tired feet, and free shuttle buses from Pasir Ris Bus terminal.
