Aviation Schools in The Philippines (Not in Particular Order)

Philippine Airlines Aviation School

                   Started in the early sixties, the Philippine Airlines Aviation School takes pride in being the first Aviation School in Asia. 

Through the years, PAL Aviation School carried on the tradition of training excellence that made it the primary source of Philippine Airlines’ corps of PRESTIGIOUS, PROFESSIONAL and COMPETENT PILOTS. 
The PAL Aviation School has a fleet of 10 CESSNA 172 aircraft.  It also has one FRASCA 142 synthetic flight trainer.  Ground school training is held at the PAL Learning Center, Manila while flight training is held at Clark Field, Pampanga.

The core objective of the Pilot Training Courses offered by Philippine Airlines Aviation School is to teach aspiring pilots to be knowledgeable and proficient in flying through the application of extensive training techniques and procedures that meet the standards set by Philippine Airlines and required by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

Courses offered: 

Pilot Trainees in the AB-Initio Pilot Training Program
Instrument Rating Training (Basic and Advance)
Flight Instructor Course 
Through these courses, Philippine Airlines Aviation School also aims to be the primary producer of skilled and globally competitive pilots in the world. 


Omni Aviation

               In 1993, the newly formed Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) established the Clark Development Corporation which was given the responsibility of rehabilitating and developing the former Clark Air Force base, which is now known as the Clark Free Port Zone (CFPZ).
Omni Aviation was organized in the early part of 1993 and was formally incorporated that August with the intention to lease and develop the premises of the Clark Aero Club, a 32-hectare aerodrome located adjacent to the main runways of the former Clark Air Force Base. In early February 1994, Omni Aviation Corporation signed a 25-year lease with the Clark Development Corporation. The lease is renewable for an additional 25 years when it expires in 2019. Over the years, the Omni Aviation Complex has literally risen from the ashes of Mount Pinatubo to become a lush aviation park unlike any other in the Philippines.
Omni was originally owned by five retired B-747 airline captains, one retired Airbus 320 Captain with combined aeronautical experience in excess of 250 years and approximately 170,000 flying hours. Five businessmen with interests in the fields of transportation, securities trading and finance,
manufacturing, and education among others, round out Omni's list of shareholders.
In the first quarter of 2011 an educational institution acquired ownership of a large portion of company stocks. An ambitious plan to significantly expand the operations is a foot.
