On January 10, 2024, IAUDRRMU conducted a Deployment Briefing & Send-Off Activity at the Aerospacers’ Hall, attended by all members rendering duty for the Sinulog-related activities.
This is part of the preparations for the responders as they gear up for their first external deployment of the year, which is for the world renowned Sinulog festivities. Members will be deployed as medical first responders at the Basilica Minore Del Sto. Niño for the novena masses, Lapu-Lapu City for the Traslacion, and at the South Road Properties for the Sinulog Grand Parade.
The Operational Briefing and Send-Off Activity ensures as well that our members are well-prepared for the upcoming duties which underscores our commitment to this meaningful deployment.
The Indiana Aerospace University (IAU) community is preparing for the upcoming fluvial procession on January 20, 2024. We’re looking for kind individuals to sponsor flowers for this special event.
Your flower contributions, along with prayer petitions, will be gracefully dropped over the image of the Sto. Niño as the galleon ship sails through the Mactan Cebu Harbor Channel to CCLEX. We kindly ask that you package these in plastic packs to make it easier for our IAU pilots to shower your flower offerings.
You can drop off your flower contributions and prayer intentions at the following locations:
1. St. Therese Chapel, IAU campus at Kagodoy Rd., Basak, LapuLapu City.
2. IAU Condotel, 223 D. Jakosalem Street, Cebu City.
We’re looking forward to your support. Your floral contributions will add to the beauty and significance of the fluvial procession.

Teresa III Analog I and II were successfully launched last June 2 by the IAU AE-Research and Development Team. The crew demonstrated reusable rocket technology by relaunching Teresa III Analog I at 0932H and safely retrieving it, accumulating datasets that will be used for future rocket launches. Teresa III Analog II rocket was launched at 1100H with the purpose of testing the deployment of a Can Satellite as a payload at a higher altitude which was successfully deployed and recovered. The final phase of the Teresa III rocket’s development will make use of the data gathered by the payload.
The team’s success in achieving a maximum apogee of 1,550 feet while simultaneously gathering all of the data telemetry from the two analog rockets was evidence that the rocket demonstration succeeded in its intended goal, marking another milestone for the Aerospace Engineering Students at Indiana Aerospace University. A prevalent display of how rockets may propel forward and inspire fellow Aerospacers that anything is achievable with hard work and devotion.
The AE Research and Development team would like to thank the IAU Administration for the unwavering support. The Municipality of Medellin led by Mayor Joven Mondigo Jr., local government organizations PNP, MDRRM, DPWH, BFP and Brgy. Captain Imelda for enabling us to conduct our rocket launches safely.
The final installment of the Teresa III rocket development awaits! Stay tuned for the momentous rocket lift-off that will leave you in awe. Let’s explore the cosmos together and envision a time when the universe’s limits serve as our playground.

This year’s slogan, “Heading 30,” takes inspiration from a compass-like aircraft instrument called the directional gyro. As one of the critical systems in a piston-powered aircraft, it indicates the direction the plane is heading.
Indiana Aerospace University vehemently believes that the only way forward is to move forward as speedy and as accurate as the directional gyro. Hence, on its 30th Founding Anniversary, IAU goes to great lengths in aligning its academic endeavors in the areas of flight training, academic instruction, research and development, and community extension services with local, regional, and global standards.
In IAU, we ace with pace!
The IDRRMU conducted its first School Based DRRM Orientation at the Aerospacer’s Hall on October 14, 2022. Participants were from the officers coming from the different departmental and institutionalized organizations, who were able to attain the basic knowledge of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management.
The facilitators were able to impart and demonstrate basic medical first aid such as types of lifting, bandaging and CPR which are essential during medical emergencies. The student leaders that attended the orientation were evaluated after the demonstration by stations.
To the student leaders, the IDRRMU appreciates your active participation in the said event with our hopes that you may apply all the skills and knowledge that you have learned.
At the first Philippine Aviation Research Conference (PARC) held virtually nationwide on July 14-15, 2022, Indiana Aerospace University (IAU) garnered second place with the research paper entitled “Modeling and simulation of a proposed model rocket design” under the Aerospace/ Aeronautical Engineering Category and “A Structural Equation Modelling approach in evaluating perceived motivation of aviation technology students in using flight simulator” under the Aviation Education category.
The papers were presented by aerospace engineers and faculty Engr. Jeremy S. Bajado and no less than IAU’s Chief Executive Harold E. Toring. Engr. Bajado’s paper aimed at presenting the modeling and simulation results of a proposed high-powered rocket which was designed by a team of aerospace engineers of IAU, as spearheaded by Engr. Bajado himself. Mr. Toring’s paper intended to report a pioneer quantitative evaluation of 225 aviation technology students’ motivation in using flight simulators in an aviation school through the framework Hedonic-Motivation System Adoption Model, of which, results indicate acceptance of flight simulators as an educational tool to speed up the improvement pedagogy and instruction.
Two other papers with the titles “Validation of a Flying Competence Scale for Aircraft Pilots ” and “Evaluation of students’ satisfaction towards an adopted learning management system at Indiana Aerospace University: A Structural Equation Modelling Approach” were presented respectively by the head of Avionics Department Mr. Ranel M. Benatiro and core faculty Prof. Flordeliza B. Illustrisimo. The former emphasized the evaluation of the flying competence of aircraft pilots through a scale that was developed by pilots in IAU, which was approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), while the latter revealed that by using Nguyen’s LMS satisfaction model (with sex and year levels added as moderating variables) results revealed that system content, interaction, and technology quality significantly and positively influenced students’ perceived usefulness of IAU’s Altimeter, the name of its Learning Management System (LMS), which subsequently led to student satisfaction.
Even though the studies presented did not earn a place in the conference, the paper presented by Mr. Benatiro was already published in the Journal of Aerospace Technology and Management, a Scopus-indexed scholarly journal, while the one by Prof. Illustrisimo had been accepted by the Asia-Pacific Management Review, also a Scopus-indexed journal and to be published by Elsiever, a globally renowned publisher of scientific research.
In an interview, CEO Harold Toring could not help but take pride in the University’s performance at the conference and its research endeavors. “Despite the fact that we only finished second place for the two research papers, the experience itself of having to share and contribute to aviation research is a winning moment already,” quipped Mr. Toring, who was very optimistic that the University can do more when it comes to undertaking research and development studies.
He disclosed that research is the currency in this knowledge-driven society adding that “this [IAU’s] is the just the start of the many more research activities that they will be pioneering, especially in this age of vulnerability, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.”
To date, IAU awaits the publication of two more papers in different Scopus-indexed journals.
Bannering under the theme “Sustainability of Philippine Air Transport Amidst the Pandemic”, PARC 2022 is said to be the first national conference on aviation research, as hosted by Philippine State College of Aeronautics in partnership with the PATTS College of Aeronautics and Air Link International Aviation College.
