Checking the ‘office’
Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Airbus have taken advantage of the A380 very large airliner’s presence here to introduce the operator’s senior personnel and flightcrew to the behemoth. Five pilots and four other flight-operations personnel were on board the Rolls-Royce Trent 900-powered A380 on Tuesday and were able to check its handling. Seen here at their “workstations” are flight-operations senior vice-president Capt. Gerard Yeap and flight-operations divisional vice-president Capt. L.C. Yong SIA has ordered 10 A380-800s and will be the type’s first operator when service begins at the end of this year.
