Hi Capt Lim,

I'm an ATP rated pilot in the US but fly only for pleasure. I am a competition aerobatic pilot, having been on the US team a couple of times.

I'm considering an Ex Pat job with my employer in Singapore and was wondering what the possibilities are for personal flying. I just purchased a new aerobatic aircraft and would be tempted to ship it to Singapore for personal use if there was any possibility of being able to fly it.

Can you point me in the right direction to get answers to these questions?

Thanks very much. Your web site is very interesting.

Regards,

Bob

Hi Bob,

An American ATP is not recognized in Singapore for commercial flying unless it is converted to an ICAO ATPL. Since you do not intend to fly commercially, it is therefore not an issue. However, on the strength of your ATP, you may not be able to do any private flying unless you convert it to a Singapore PPL (Private Pilot License) as it is the easiest way around for any private or personal flying. You probably only have to pass the local Air Law paper and a quick check out on a single plane at a Flying Club.

As far as aerobatic flying is concerned, due to lack of airspace in Singapore, it may not be possible. I can put you in contact with a pilot friend of mine named JFK Johan who is also a flying enthusiast and owns a light plane in Kuala Lumpur too (also a part time DJ in a local radio station). He may be able to give you some help if he is not busy flying around or in the air at the radio station! Contact him on his Twitter here.

You can also download Forms to apply for your PPL from the CAAS (Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore) Flight Crew License here or seek for more details on how to convert your ATP to a local PPL and ship your plane to Singapore by visiting the office below. They may help you with your inquiries.
