Despite the many challenges in the past, it was a banner year for Leading Edge this Calendar Year 2017. Divine Providence must have intervened in the process of attaining record breaking achievements this year compared to the previous years as far as surpassing the total number of Flying Time, a significant increase in the number Student Pilots as well as hiring an adequate number of qualified Flight Instructors without sacrificing Safety and Standards, the beacon of LEIAAI’s thrust as a training institution. Moreover, in facilities and equipment, the school had acquired additional Cessna 172M aircraft, a total of 8 this year, one of which is a Cessna 172S, G1000 Glass Cockpit, primarily for Instrument Rating proficiency, increasing the current training fleet from 10 to a total of 18 aircraft. Likewise, the school now has a total of 3 Simulators with the latest acquisition of an FAA certified Redbird G1000 Glass Cockpit, Full Motion Sim. Furthermore, we now have two (2) maintenance hangars which house all the air assets and where a newly constructed 3 story high-end built-in dormitory facility is co-located. But what matters most in LEIAAI’s 10 years of existence, is its valuable contribution to the overall aviation industry where most graduates are now gainfully employed in all major domestic airlines and in the Gen Aviation. It is with deep pride and honor that we have successfully reached the pinnacle of excellence and professionalism in the school’s vision to be the best flight school in the country as well as in the Asia Pacific region.
In view of the foregoing, it is but proper that the sterling feat of the Leading Edge Family for CY 2017 be highlighted with a bang on the occasion of its Christmas Party with the “Great Gatsby of the Roaring 20’s” as the motif! Thus, as a form of reward and respite from the rigors of sustained flight training operations the past year, last December 21, 2017, every member of the LEIAAI Family (BOD, top management & staff, Manila & SFLU employees, maintenance personnel, AMT faculty and the Corps of Flight Instructors) came in full force to actively participate and enjoy the very lively super grand celebration of the Christmas Holidays! It was an evening full of fun and laughter, total entertainment, group contest, raffle draw, door prizes, etc… Unforgettable indeed! Mabuhay ang LEIAAI family. Safe Skies! Merry Christmas to one and all! Cheers and God bless us all!✈️😍😘🍸🍾🎊🍻🎅🏼💕🎭☀️😇🙏😉✨✌️👍
