Aspiring cabin crew applicants flocked to Indiana Aerospace University’s (IAU) Aerospacers’ Hall with high hopes to fly for the country’s flag carrier, PAL Express.
Supervised by Mr. Leonides V. Peña, AVP Director of In-flight Services and Training Department, the recruitment by PAL Express was aimed at hiring more cabin crew personnel owing to the airliner’s unprecedented demand. “There is a need to hire more cabin crews”, says Mr. Peňa, “but applicants must meet the standards.” Further, the activity was held to accommodate competent applicants who have difficulty in making it to Manila. According to him, they [PAL Ex] are usually the ones reaching out to applicants nationwide, especially those outside of Metro Manila.
Asked why IAU was the chosen place to hold the event, Mr. Peña quips, “Because IAU is generous enough to open the doors to accommodate applicants even if they are not graduates from their school.”
This in a way makes IAU the favourite hub for aspiring airline/aviation professionals as more airline companies and service providers collaborate with the school yearly for career opportunities here and abroad.
On February 4, 2020, Canada’s Sault College, as represented by its Vice President, Strategic International Development Richard W. Peters, met with Indiana Aerospace University’s Chief Executive Officer Harold E. Toring to tackle the forthcoming consortium between the two schools especially in the aviation and airline course offerings.
Both parties were very positive as they looked into not only the congruence in curricular offerings and amenities but also the myriad academic and career opportunities such as student-and-faculty exchange program, summer camp, andinternship which will benefit IAU senior high school and college students, faculty, and stakeholders. Present at the meeting were Dr. Nonita P. Legaspi, Dean of Colleges; Capt. Marc Aron Y. Uy, Aviation Department Head; Ms. Fairlane Inso and Dr. Christian Ray C. Licen, former program consultant.
After the meeting, Mr. Toring walked Mr. Peters through the Aviation Simulacrum building which features IAU’s flight simulator. As higher education institutions are moving towards international academic mobilization and linkages, IAU is surely on the go!

There is no stopping Indiana Aerospace University (IAU) in beefing up its linkages especially with the country’s premier aviation service provider, Aviation Partnership (Phils.) Corporation. In November 2019, the first batch of forty (40) Aerospacers was taken on-board for the General Familiarization Course in Airbus A320. They were trained by the high-calibre technical instructors of Aplus. The short training is an integral component in the AMT 222: Airframe and Powerplant academic course which is offered on the second year of the Bachelor of Science in Aircraft Maintenance Technology (BS AMT) program. Students enrolled in AMT 222 ought to complete the 40-hour training which comprises lectures and practical activities within a week. More batches from around the two hundred AMT majors will be sent to Aplus Philippines in the days to come. This is said to be the only initiative among the aviation schools in the country to incorporate practical training in the academic program. IAU continues to innovate in its curriculum by forging industry partnerships so that the Aerospacers, the future aviation professionals in the country, will have already mastered the essential skills during their academic and ground training with the school. Indeed, what more can be true when Amelia Earhart said that you have not really seen a tree until you have seen its shadow from the sky!
In line with the upcoming Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines’ (CAAP) paper-and-pencil entrance test for the Comprehensive Air Traffic Service Course Batch 15. There will be a Career Talk about Air Traffic Controller on February 12, 2020, 2 o’ clock in the afternoon at the Aerospacers Hall. for interested applicants, please feel free to attend the said orientation.
