Synopsis
Singapore Airshow 2008 proved to be a success both in the aviation industry and amongst the general public. The next airshow in two years' time is certainly something to look forward to.

How much time you will need: About 4 to 6 hours to enjoy the static and the aerobatic displays.

What we thought of it: Despite the heat and the crowds, it was worth it. The aerobatic display by the local Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knights was a sure-winner.

Review
The inaugural Singapore Airshow 2008 was held at a purpose-built location at the Changi Exhibition Centre with its own runway, a large air-conditioned exhibition hall and permanent chalets for the trade visitors. As with other airshows, the first few days were for trade visitors only while the last two days were open to the public.
The static displays included military and commercial aeroplanes and helicopters such as the Airbus A380, the USAF F-16CJ Fighting Falcon, Cessna 400, Eurocopter EC145 and Bell 412EP. The Republic of Singapore Air Force also had on display a Lockheed Martin F-16D and its Apache attack helicopter.
For the little ones, there were plenty of memorabilia. Also, in the exhibition hall, there was a number of simulators, including one with the full cockpit of the Hercules C130 to get them excited.
The aerobatic performances included the Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knights and the Royal Australian Air Force Roulettes, both of which charmed the crowd with their exciting and spectacular aerial manoeuvres.  Also participating in the aerobatic displays was the Airbus A380 which had a mesmerizing effect with its size and grandness.
Tips
The show attracted large crowd, especially on the second day, and closer to the aerobatic displays. Therefore, go early if you can and be prepared for long queues.

Things to Bring
A camera for sure.
Bring drinking water and snacks especially for the kids. Caps or umbrellas are also useful for the hot sun. A mat to sprawl on the ground will be useful for tired legs. And perhaps a good book or handheld games for the long waits.

Opening Times
Opening times: 9:30 am to 5 pm.

Best time to go: As early as you can.

Admission Fees
$20 per adult.
$8 per child (3 to 12 years old).
Free for children years and under.

How to Get There
By Taxi - The taxi will take you there but there will be a surcharge. Probably the most expensive mode to get to the airshow venue.

By MRT - Alight at Pasir Ris MRT on the East-West Line and transfer to a shuttle service for the airshow.
