SAPPHIRE INTERNATIONAL AVIATION ACADEMY was established to cater to the growing worldwide demand for aviation professionals. With its high literacy rate and proficiency in the English language, the Philippines is now virtually the aviation training center of Asia and the Far East. Many students from various countries all over the world - India, Indonesia, Nepal, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Nigeria - have been coming to the Philippines to enroll in aviation courses.
An estimated 29,000 new, lighter and more fuel-efficient large passenger and cargo aircraft scheduled to be put in service between 2008 and 2030 will create a worldwide demand for at least 600,000 new aviation manintenance professionals, and 1,000,000 cabin crew all over the world, particularly, in Asia and its neighboring regions, giving aviation schools their reason for being.
SIAA’s Newest Major Course
Starting School Year 2015 – 2016, SIAA is offering its newest, most attractive pioneering course:
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE in AVIATION ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (BS-AET)
This new 4-YEAR COURSE enables students to earn a degree in aviation that puts together the 2-year Aircraft Maintenance Technology (AMT) Course and the 2-year Aviation Electronics Technology (AET), or Avionics Course in one comprehensive and logical course that SIAA’s brain thrust had designed to satisfy the need for a degree course and make graduates more “marketable” and, therefore, more preferred by aviation employers anywhere in the world. Graduates of this course can secure professional aviation maintenance licenses, like AMT and AMS from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
Per documents submitted to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the BS-AET Course provides students ample time for more technical subjects in PowerPlant, Airframe, and Avionics that will strengthen their training to be truly globally competitive in their aviation maintenance careers where specialization is always a must.
Graduates of this course will have the skills to maintain any kind of aircraft and thereby assure them of well-paying jobs in airlines and aviation companies the world over.
