Age Is Just A Number

Hi! I’m Shawn Heng. On 10th March 2020, I started my airline journey on the Boeing 777 fleet with a local airline.


To be forthright, being a pilot never crossed my mind because back in the old days, eyesight requirements for the Air Force were stringent and my myopia degree simply meant that it was not a possibility.


At age 20, I joined the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) as an Air Traffic Controller and served for 17 years. All can be traced back to the movie Pushing Tin, which fuelled my initial drive to pursue a career in aviation.
