Testimonial 

SEG Shaun Allan Hardie
I was particularly interested in RP’s Diploma in Aviation Management to find out what the aviation industry has to offer. EAE@RP gives me a good opportunity to pursue my aspirations to become a pilot, and to secure an internship with Singapore Youth Flying Club as I work towards my dream!
