My Record-Breaking Mini-Stopover in Singapore

Short Final Runway 21 Seletar Airport Singapore

I wonder what the shortest stop-over in Singapore might have been so far.  I mean a stop-over with immigration and customs clearance both ways, not just changing flights at Changi.  I don’t know the answer, but I think I might have come close to breaking the record for the shortest stop over yesterday.  I spend a grand total of 2 minutes in Singapore in between entry and exit clearances.  Thankfully Seletar doesn’t have that many passengers passing through, so I hope the always very helpful officers at the checkpoint didn’t mind too much.

You might ask why I was doing this.  Well, it wasn’t because I want to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, even so the thought briefly crossed my mind.  No, I had to go through immigration because I wanted to show Michael Dent how to fly in and out of Singapore and instead of the planned touch and go, ATC told me that I had to do a full stop and go to the Apron office.  The upside of this was that I could take Michael through a crash course of CIQ procedures as well.
