Airworks Aviation Academy

School Highlights

Located at the second busiest airport, Cebu, in the country, Airworks Aviation Academy is approximately 1.5 hours flight time from Manila. Its specific location is within the airport in the General Aviation Area, Mactan-Cebu International Airport. This location gives this flight school the advantage of being able to conduct certain components of training in a real airline environment. Additionally, its location in Cebu gives students a mix of education and leisure with Cebu being known for its beautiful beaches and whale shark diving.

The training is done using a fleet of 21 aircraft (including a number of Cessna 172 SP, Cessna 172, Cessna 152, Baron, and Piper Seneca II). This large fleet makes Airworks Aviation Academy one of the top 3 largest flight schools in the country. This large fleet has allowed Airworks Aviation Academy to get students from other countries such as Indonesia, Myanmar, and Vietnam. Not only does Airworks Aviation Academy provide pilot training but it also offers Aviation English to assist students who need to improve their communication skills. In total Airworks currently trains students from 25 countries.

Its graduates fly with Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Air Asia, Lion Air, Garuda Indonesia, Cathay Pacific to list a few.

One of the greatest features of Airworks Aviation Academy is that it is one of the most active flight schools on social media regularly updating its content to ensure new potential students can follow the training of current cadets. The training facilities are in Mactan-Cebu International Airport and the school has offices, aside from Manila, in Indonesia, South Korea, and Iran.
