Committed to develop the next generation of world-class Filipino aviation professionals, First Aviation Academy (FAA) opens its doors to aspiring pilots on March 21, 2019, at the Subic International Airport in Northern Luzon. First Aviation Academy is a joint venture between MacroAsia Corporation and the PTC Group, both leaders in their respective industries, covering a broad platform of quality aviation and maritime support services, locally and internationally.

FAA takes pride in being at the forefront of professional development for the airline industry, propelled by a comprehensive curriculum, experienced instructors and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to produce airline-ready aviation professionals primed for flight operations.

Two main features that set FAA apart from other aviation schools in the country are its fleet of brand-new Tecnam planes with Garmin G-1000 full glass cockpit electronic instrumentation and the Redbird MCX and TD2 G-1000 simulators.  Such a training platform will enable students to develop the skill sets necessary to excel in the international aviation space.

Through its intensive 12-month training program, graduates from the academy will have completed a Private Pilot License (PPL), Instrument Rating (IR), Multi-Engine Rating (MER),  Commercial Pilot License (CPL) and Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) Theory.  Top graduates will also have a chance to become a Flight Instructor, providing a unique way to build up their flying hours, while honing their instructor skills.

With the worldwide demand for pilots growing year on year, FAA is cleared for take-off and is set to “fly high to move the world.”
