The Flight School, Singapore Flying College headquarters are located at Seletar, Singapore, in close proximity to Seletar Airport and this is where the ground school phase of training, as well as the aptitude flight testing is conducted. On successful completion, cadets subsequently do the rest of the Commercial Pilot License and Instrument rating training at Singapore Flying College other training facility at Jandakot Airport in Perth, Western Australia. This is because airspace is busy and restricted in Singapore and Australia provides an better initial environment for flight training.
