Aeronavigation Academy International (AAI) was established to impart airline oriented pilot training to students from Asia. The curriculum at AAI has been designed for an ab-initio pilot to mature into a professional modern aviator. The school was designed that all training is located in the same facility. Another feature which the school highlights is that its ground school and flight training go beyond basic FAA (US) requirements. The courses offered by AAI go from Private Pilot License, Commercial Pilot License, Instrument Rating, Multi-Engine Rating and Flight Instructor Course. One of the key features which Aeronavigation Academy International highlights is that it keeps the instructor to pupil ratio to not below 1:5.

AAI has a liaison officer in Manila which will assist students with CAAP requirements, tests and license acquisition.

The school is conveniently located on airport property at the New Bacolod-Silay Airport in the island of Negros Occidental. The airport was opened in 2007 and AAI has full access to the ATC, facilities, airport navigation aids, runway and other airport equipment.  The airport has a 2km long runway and has limited commercial traffic. AAI is located 15 kilometers northeast of Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental (approx. 1 hour flight from Manila). Aeronavigation Academy International has 8 aircraft at this airport including 4 Cessna 172s, 3 Cessna 150s and 1 Piper Aztec (multi-engine aircraft).

The school has approximately 35 students in training and caters to both Filipino and foreign students.

Aeronavigation Academy International in addition is an approved maintenance organisation (AMO) and is approved for sightseeing flights by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

Aeronavigation Academy International currently does not own a full flight simulator so the type rating is done by another training organisation or an airline.
