Pilot school opens in Subic

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – A premier pilot school in the country is opening its facilities inside this premier Freeport, making the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) expand its thrust in providing aviation services.
From its home-base at the Clark Freeport in Pampanga, Omni Aviation Corporation expanded into Subic and renovated Hangar 8128, which was used by US Navy war planes until 1992.

Captain Ben Hur Gomez, Omni chairman and chief executive, said the Subic facility is part of his company’s vision to become the premier pilot school and fixed-base operator in the Southeast Asian region.

Investing P33 million for its start-up operations here, Omni will use the facility for its instruction room, flight demonstration room, administration office, and conference room. Six aircrafts, including four for the flying school and two for chartering services, will be dedicated for the Subic operation.

“The reason why we chose Subic as our extension facility is because of its very natural environment which is very essential and inspiring to students,” Gomez said, adding that their students, many of whom are foreigners, are delighted upon seeing the Subic facility. By JONAS REYES - mb.com.ph
