“Learn to cook, take good care of your teeth, talk to people in the elevator and whatever you do, don’t set the water temperature to ‘hot’ while washing your clothes,” Lionel Yeo Shen Kiang says, laughing heartily as he gives advice gleaned from his own experience as a student in a foreign land.

“Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is Captain Eugene speaking. Welcome aboard Singapore Airlines Flight SQ 241, departing from Singapore to Sydney …”

Seated in the cockpit of a Boeing 777 as he poses for the camera, Eugene looks relaxed and completely in his element.

It’s not much of a surprise considering the Deputy Chief Pilot (Training) of the B777 fleet has been flying with Singapore Airlines (SIA) for the past 24 years.

“I first took to the skies in a Cessna 172, at age 15 – before I got my driver’s license – and since then I was sold on Aviation as a career. Law and Medicine, my other two career options, were quickly eliminated. I’ve never looked back nor regretted my decision ever since,” recalls Eugene.

A whole new world

To fuel his dream, the Kuala Lumpur native started flying lessons and obtained his Commercial Pilots Licence prior to joining SIA as a Second Officer on the B757.

Having long harboured an interest in flight technology, Lim Tiang now has control over the “metal birds” and travels to different cities all over the globe for a living.

He chose to study Electronics and Communication Engineering at Singapore Polytechnic (SP) in order to chase his dream of flying to success, literally. “I was very intrigued with the job of a pilot during my youth. I was fascinated by the machines that are able to take flight in the sky,” the SIA pilot reveals.

With regard to his engineering background, Lim Tiang explains, “Modern aircraft incorporates many applications of technology, and as such, pursuing an engineering diploma is a logical extension of my interest in aviation.”
