SAPPHIRE INTERNATIONAL AVIATION ACADEMY, a private Philippine corporation principally engaged in providing training for students desiring to embark on a career in aviation or just for pleasure, was organized and established in 2004 and has been operating as an aviation school since then.
In 2004, SIAA was granted its original Air Agency Certificate No. 2004-04 by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). This was later renewed by the CAAP by its issuance of Approved Training Organization Certificate No. 2013-01 on May 21, 2014, after a very meticulous audit inspection. It has a validity of three (3) years from its date of renewal.
