PATTS College of Aeronautics’ goal of excellence was gloriously celebrated with a lavish golden gala, commemorating its 50th year, a vital milestone in the world of aviation. The school is rich in history and has truly set worldclass standards in aviation education. It has established itself as a leader in the aeronautics field through the drive, determination, and enthusiasm of the “pillars of aviation” couple, chairman and CEO Atty. Ambrosio Valdez and vice president and CFO Felisa Valdez, along with president and COO Engr. Jose Valdez. They have garnered accolades for their forward-thinking vision.

A significant attraction was the photo exhibit where the guests admired the 50-year history of the school, from its vintage World War II hangar to its classrooms and offices, which were then at the old domestic airport. PATTS invests heavily in innovation and strategic partnerships, which are the keys to their success and are trademarks that put them on an exclusive status among other aviation schools. Outshining everything, PATTS College of Aeronautics is now designed to turn heads with its modern campus located along Lombos Ave. in Parañaque. The sprawling five-story building is unlike any other, with state-of-theart facilities, a sports gym, a multipurpose quadrangle, and a chapel.
