RSAF Open House 2011 – Bloggers Exclusive

On an Apache Helicopter

I went for a preview of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Open House 2011 on Monday afternoon, by the invitation of MINDEF Public Affairs. For the first time in my life, I managed to get up close to an Apache Helicopter!

RSAF F-15SG

Of course, this is not exclusive to the Bloggers invited – The public will be able to get up close with the latest RSAF aircraft and weapon systems like the F-15SG fighter aircraft at the RSAF Open House 2011 too!

The Red Lions

I was truly wowed by the aerial display by the RSAF fighter jets and helicopters, as well as the parachuting by the Red Lions!  The display will takes place twice daily at 11.00am and 4.30pm.

We also managed to get a ride on the Chinook Helicopter! The aircraft rides on the RSAF’s C-130 and Fokker-50 transport aircraft, the Chinook helicopter and the Singapore Youth Flying Club’s DA-40 will be made available through a balloting system!  Each ride will last about 30 minutes and each winner will be entitled to two boarding passes!

Fighter Jets

There are a lot more at the RSAF Open House 2011 that we did not get to preview as they were still setting up, so do visit the RSAF Open House 2011 official site at www.mindef.gov.sg/rsafopenhouse for more information!

RSAF Open House 2011 – When, where and how to get there?
