In the mid 90’s, a group of aviators envisioned establishing an aviation school that will develop, train, and produce world-class pilots. All graduates of the prestigious Philippine Air Force Flying School, these aviators are Major General Gilbert S. Llanto (Ret), Major General Rolando F. Capacia, Colonel Gonzalo A. Capili (Ret), Lieutenant General Roy O. Deveraturda (Ret), and Captain Jacob Sacro. These men, with their wide array of training and experience, collaborated to pursue their dreams and make it a reality in 2007 with Leading Edge International Aviation Academy.

Leading Edge International Aviation Academy is based at San Fernando Airport Leading Edge has 13 aircraft and 1,600 square meters area covering the hangar and facilities. The fleet today consists of 7 Cessna 172s, 5 Cessna 152s and one Cessna 340. The school also has one simulator the CAT IV 5 panel HD Modular Flight Deck Simulator.

Leading Edge International Aviation Academy Flight training is conducted out of San Fernando Airport with the secondary airport being Plaridel Airport.

Back in 2014 Leading Edge International Aviation Academy also gained the approval to offer an Aircraft Maintenance Technician training course. With its wide range of courses Leading Edge trains foreign students as well.

The San Fernando location is great for students looking to surf in the spare time.

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