The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is a Statutory Board under the Ministry of Transport.
CAAS’ mission is to “Grow a safe, vibrant air hub and civil aviation system, making a key contribution to Singapore's success”. CAAS' roles are to enable the growth of the air hub and aviation industry, oversee and promote safety in the industry, provide air navigation services, and develop Singapore as a centre of excellence for aviation knowledge and human resource development.
Enabling opportunities through aviation
Aviation has progressed beyond recognition since the first powered flight by the Wright Brothers in 1903. Today's highly sophisticated aviation network of airlines, airports and air traffic management systems has opened up a world of communication and commerce unthinkable a century ago.
Aviation has been at the heart of Singapore's economic development through the years. As a diverse economy closely linked with global markets, our ability to maintain connections has been a cornerstone of our success.
A city connecting the world
Today Singapore is at the crossroads of Asia. Enabling a network of business relationships, cultural links and personal friendships that span the globe, Singapore is truly a city connecting the world.
CAAS has contributed to this by helping develop an aviation system that is unmatched anywhere else in the world. The world's most awarded airport, an enviable air safety record, a reputation as a respected centre for aviation training and a vibrant aviation industry are all the result of the commitment to developing Singapore as a global centre of aviation excellence now and for the future.
