Blessing of the four (4) newly procured Cessna 172M

Today, a Monday, on or about 3:30 pm, May 21, 2018 before the completion of last period of the scheduled flight training for the day, a very special event took place at the LEIAAI Maintenance Hangar Ramp. The occasion was the simple blessing of the four (4) newly procured Cessna 172M aircraft as well as the newly fabricated Engine Test Cell officiated by Rev Fr. Rainier Andrada which at long last completed all the documentary requirements (COR and COA) from CAAP just recently. As of this date, the school is just awaiting anytime soon the release of the ATOC Amendment for them to be officially included in the training fleet which totals 18 aircraft, all Cessna 172Ms except for one Cessna 172S G1000 glass cockpit. The low key activity which is considered a very critical factor in commissioning our air assets was graced by Ms Kate Bada, PPMC Airport Manager, the school’s avid supporter and good friend. Likewise, ACDI’s Internal Audit team headed by Ms Baby Grefalda and Col Atty Julius Magno were also present to spice the event. Furthermore, all available personnel of LEIAAI, management and staff as well as the corps of Flight Instructors, Student Pilots, AMT training staff and Maintenance personnel were all present in full force to witness this very significant spiritual event. Mabuhay ang Leading Edge family, Safe Skies and God bless us all!
