Airbus signs partnership to establish Sustainable Aviation hub in Singapore

Airbus has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) to facilitate the establishment of a Sustainable Aviation Hub with a specific focus on technology, research, and innovation. The Hub will bring together aviation professionals, researchers, and innovators to create a collaborative environment that promotes research and development aimed at building a robust and environmentally sustainable aviation ecosystem. To support the global transition to decarbonized aviation, the Hub will focus on supply chain research and analysis of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and hydrogen-based technologies, and will focus on advancing maintenance, services, and operations within the aerospace industry, leveraging cutting-edge technologies and best practices. It will also work on projects aimed at modernizing and improving air traffic management (ATM) systems, as well as the emerging field of unmanned air traffic management (UTM). This project includes the design, development, testing, and validation of next-generation sustainable aviation technologies and best practices in the industry. The Sustainable Aviation Hub will be hosted at the Airbus Singapore Campus in the Seletar Aerospace Park. A priority for the Hub is to work closely with local businesses, universities, and research institutions to facilitate knowledge exchange, talent development, and joint research initiatives. A comprehensive talent development program will also be established to nurture local aviation professionals, researchers, and innovators through internships, training courses, and joint programs with the support of Airbus’ global research teams. “Singapore is Airbus’ Asia-Pacific headquarters, given its strategic location, pro-innovation policies, highly skilled workforce, and strong research capabilities. Therefore, it is an ideal choice to lead an initiative like this one. This project is in line with Airbus’ commitment to lead the decarbonization of the aerospace sector. We look forward to exploring together the development of new technologies and investing in low-carbon aviation solutions”, said Sabine Klauke, Chief Technology Officer at Airbus. – https://aeroin.net/airbus-firma-parceria-para-estabelecer-hub-de-aviacao-sustentavel-em-singapura/
