RSAF Open House 2021 


Each NDP, we’re used to seeing the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) captivating aerobatic jet performances. If you missed that this year, there’s still a chance for you to deep-dive into RSAF’s cool jets, choppers, ground defence systems and operations at their virtual open house this year.

From now till 19th December 2021, there’ll be virtual flying displays, exhibits and games over at the RSAF Open House 2021 (ROH21) website. With customisable avatars and exclusive prizes to be won, there’s tonnes to see and it can all be experienced from the comfort of your home.

There are four games available, like one that tests your memory on RSAF’s aircraft and weapon systems – Remember Our Assets. Others include trivia games like Seek Knowledge or strategic tower defence games like Fortify Our Bases. But if all this is too much thinking for you, Attack From The Skies is a simple arcade aerial shooter.


Win prizes by doing creative challenges


Aside from the virtual games, RSAF will also be holding creative challenges that you can take part in with your friends and family.

One of the challenges is for you to submit a photo of you and your gang exercising outdoors

Those with a knack for getting plenty of “likes” on their social media will have no trouble executing creative group photos for most of the challenges. Some of the themes include getting some outdoor exercise, or submitting a past photo at a previous year’s RSAF Open House. You’ll also be able to win RSAF goodies when you take part. 

See the full list of creative challenges and how to enter.


Browse through the virtual exhibition


The RSAF Open House 2021 will also feature a virtual exhibition that showcases RSAF’s history, development, and capabilities. The exhibition takes place in a virtual hangar and includes a replicated virtual exhibition space.
