100 Years of Aviation in Singapore

Aviation enthusiasts would probably be interested in today’s stamp issue. Entitled 100 Years of Aviation in Singapore, this set of five stamps was released by Singapore Post on 16 March 2011. Each stamp featured an aircraft flying above an aviation hub in a chronological order, with the silhouette of a cheerful crowd as the foreground.

Exactly one century ago on 16 March 1911, the first aircraft flew out of Singapore and was piloted Mr Joseph Christiaens. That moment was reflected in the 1st Local stamp. Singapore’s first civil airport, Seletar Airport, was featured on the 45 cents stamp. Kallang Airport and Paya Lebar are featured on the 65 cents and 80 cents stamps respectively. The Airbus A380 aircraft flies over Singapore Changi International Airport in the $1.10 stamp.
