PATTS College of Aeronautics, also known as Philippine Air Transport and Training Services, is an aeronautical school at Lombos Ave., Paranaque City, Manila. It was founded in 1969 by Atty. Ambrosio R. Valdez Sr. The primary aim was to establish a manufacturing and assembly plant for training aircraft, the secondary aim was to start an aeronautical school to meet the needs of the domestic and international air transportation industry. The second aim turned out to be the right one and the founders focussed on setting up a top aeronautical school.
PATTS College of Aeronautics currently has over 6,000 students over its range of courses. PATTS College of Aeronautics course offerings are recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
