Safeguarding Our Skies, Defending Our Future

AIR FORCE MUSEUM

REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE AIR FORCE

FULL SPECTRUM. INTEGRATED. READY

REVAMPED

GALLERY OF THE AIR FORCE MUSEUM

The Air Force Museum was first established at Changi Air Base on 1 Sep 1988. It later moved to its current location next to Paya Lebar Air Base, and was declared open by then CDF, LG Lim Chuan Poh, on 22 March 2001. Twenty-seven years later after it was first launched, the indoor gallery of the Air Force Museum was revamped.

The revamped indoor gallery will showcase the RSAF’s heritage as well as its current capabilities. Displays and infographics of the RSAF’s retired platforms and uniforms allow visitors to understand the RSAF’s history while interactive displays and simulators allow them to experience the RSAF’s 3rd Generation capabilities.

Gallery A – Taking Flight

The displays chronicle the history of the RSAF’s developments, from the urgent build-up of the Singapore Air Defence Command to today’s 3rd Generation RSAF. It gives context to the various displays, recounts milestone events that the RSAF has achieved, and explains how the highly integrated and task-oriented command structure of the RSAF today came about.

Gallery B – Scaling New Heights

The six-Command structure is explained, demonstrating how the RSAF works in a highly responsive fashion to handle a full spectrum of missions from peace to war. The gallery uses scale models to highlight the advanced manned and unmanned platforms employed by the RSAF to form a highly networked fighting system. This gallery includes game simulators featuring various vocations in the RSAF to give visitors an interactive experience of what the RSAF’s airmen and women do to defend Singapore’s skies.

  1. Go to the reception and ask for video screening, and the staff will tell you to wait for the scheduled timing. If you asking for the basic flight simulator, the guy will tell you the system is under maintenance. In fact, they are fuck up and lazy to work.
