Cheap Flying Lessons and Best Flight Schools in the Philippines-Pilot and Aviation Training

Updated on January 18, 2014

Want to become a pilot or have a career in aviation? Here are the best flight schools in the Philippines. Also discussed are the cheapest flying lessons and best pilot training schools in the Philippines.

Aviation is an awesome career. Why choose aviation as a career? The pay, the social status, and the awesome feeling of flying, what more can you ask for if you became a licensed pilot.

Best Flight Schools in the Philippines

More and more foreigners are enrolling to the aviation schools in the Philippines because it’s so cheap and the course of aviation training is so tough compared to other countries’ pilot schooling. For other countries, you are required to complete at least 250 hours of flying an aircraft to qualify to obtain a pilot license, in the Philippines, aviation schools will let you fly an aircraft with over 1500 hours within your pilot training. So it’s very impressive to obtain six times the requirement for you to really call yourself a pilot ;) Wouldn’t that be a great practice?

So do you want to learn to fly a plane or learn to fly a helicopter? Perhaps you just wanna be an aviation mechanic or to work under the aviation maintenance staff. You can enroll now on the top aviation technician schools because it’s so affordable. And have the best aviation job you dream of. Below are the top aviation schools in the Philippines. They are the best aviation schools in the Philippines, too. If you’re searching for the list of aviation schools, you’re in the right place.

      IBK, I am not enrolled yet in Masters Flying school, I am still saving for my tuition fee. Its the most affordable school I've found and would only take you 1 year yo have a PPL and CPL (you should be a 4year bachelors graduate) and if you can pay the tuition fee) just prepare around 1.2Million pesos. or you could visit them along the domestic road.

      Hi there!

      I'm just wondering why You didn't mention anything about PhilSCA or you are just unaware that it exist?

      FYI, PhilSCA or the Philippine State College of Aeronatics is consistently producing top graduates for many years now. PRC licensure examinees for Aero Engineers always occupies the top 10. They are always on top 1.

      If this blog is for pilots only, then why did you include PATTS which does not offer a pilot course?

      @Jay you will be eligible to apply to any airline company if you have a pilot license. CPL is just a training. You need to pass a licensure exam before you become a professional pilot.

      @Nine Only the admission department aviation school could assess your brother application. I think he’s qualified because you mentioned he is totally cleared.. :)

      @Maxine You can visit the pilot school website which I provided in the article. I hope your brother enjoys his flying course. Wow!

      Good Day! My brother is hoping to be a pilot. But he had a serious Medical Issue before. To be exact, he had a Lung Tumor when he was around 15 years of age and had major operations. Now he is totally cleared from this illness. So my question is, is he qualified for the medical requirements for the Pilot Training? or more so, qualified to be a Pilot someday? Thank you. Hoping to hear from you soon.

      @Mac hi there. Yes WCC aviation school is one of the largest flight schools in the Philippines. It’s been there in good and strong standing. He could wear contacts for some instances in the course.

      @Rav pilot jobs in the Philippines are not so hiring lots of staff because there are only few domestic airline companies here. Fortunately, you can always try the international pilot career to some rich counties and huge airlines like the Emirates Group, Qantas and the like.

      @Jonathan Oh you just resigned.. I think there are some aviation schools that offer financial assistance to their students. Some even offer scholarship. Just inquire from the Admin of the school you are interested to enroll. Cheers! Take it easy and don’t worry too much.

Amazing it is that it can be done in a year. I can only imagine those who have the enough money, they would surely fly anytime.. Did you try loan from banks? If you have a regular job and you’re a CPA, it’s so easy to get a loan here :)

      Sorry MISS twentyfive.:) yup, it's a very boring job to be an accountant. I cant imagine myself doing financials for the rest of my life that's why i really wanted to pursue this dream. btw, i went to pasay to look for the cheapest school, I found Masters Flying School. and only cost 1,179,000.00++ (1.2M to be prudent) all in all!as in from a PPL to CPL.(but you need to be a college graduate) and it can be finished in a year!! that's what i'm preparing for now.plus they said there's no age limit,someone is taking a CPL there thats already 41yo. so maybe i'll take it by the time I'm 25.casue im still saving. i just really wish they offer loan or collateral or something like that. I really wanted to enroll now if i have the money. wish me luck!

      Hi fhel! this is an amazing post!

      I just want to ask a simple question.

      I want to be an airplane pilot, where i can apply to big airline companies as a pilot.

      How can I become a pilot? and How many more years of study should I need to take?

      I'm currently studying Bachelor of Laws. Prior to that, I already have a Bachelor's Degree in the field of Commerce.

      I'm planning to be a pilot after I finish my Law Degree, and hopefully pass the Bar.

      Hope 5 years ago

      this is such an informative site.. thank you so much.. I'm a BS Nursing graduate and plan (HOPE :D) to become a pilot. I live in Bacolod City. What would be the best school for me to enroll in in terms of cost and location. How much would I spend each year for the course? and are the opportunities in the Phils good for pilots? This would really help me decide in becoming one. Thank You! I will be waiting for your reply! God Bless!

      My husband is 32 y/o and wants to become a commercial pilot. Is he too old to start a career in aviation? He's working in Makati and wants to juggle work and his PPL, IR...and probably quit his job and finish his CPL. Would you know if local airlines like PR and 5J have a max. age requirement to become a F.O.? Thank you in advance. :)

      @twenty five,

      For other countries, you are required to complete at least 250 hours of flying an aircraft to qualify to obtain a pilot license, in the Philippines, aviation schools will let you fly an aircraft with over 1500 hours within your pilot training

      Regarding on the above said matter which of the flying schools in PH provide this type of hours? (1500hrs)

      I want to enter any of the schools mentioned above prolly 5 years from now (to be able to earn a CPL). However, I'm now 23. Will there be an age limit for these schools? I mean as of now, I don't have funds for schooling, and I'm planning to work overseas for quite a while until I've saved enough. I heard from other people that when you go over the age of 26, you'd be denied entrance to these aviation schools. Any truth on that?

      Hi. Yes you can be a pilot if you passed the exam for private pilot and commercial pilot. It's never too late. :) There are ppl and cpl training that are around 6 months. Would be cool to take some before you take the licensed exam. The cost depends upon the flight school. I've listed the flight schools in the article. Thank you. Best of luck to your pilot dreams.

      @AJ hello. Nope, haven’t heard about it yet.

      @Dantong hi. I suggest you take PPL first then if you had your license, it’s time to take CPL.

      @MC dela Cruz hi. Yes, I heard of Perpetual Help. I need to add it to the list. Thank you :)

      @Mahbuballah hi. I suggest you contact the main admin of the flight school you chose from the aviation school above. They are the only one who could assess you if you’re qualified even if you have a pass mark of those units. Thank you and good luck.

      @Eroz hi. It depends upon the aviation school operator lol I guess the helicopter is much pricey

      @Eduardo hello. One can become a commercial pilot if he passed the licensed exam for commercial pilot. To pass the exam, one must have taken CPL training to prepare him/ her for the exam. Taking aviation curriculum can prepare you for it. I guess I have to publish soon about how to become a private pilot and commercial pilot in the Philippines. :)

      Hi ms. twenty five. Is it true that its possible to become a commercial pilot even if I finished a BS degree not related to aviation, if so how? Cause I'm currently taking up BS Maritime Transportation(seaman) and expected to grad this sem. What should I do after I get my degree in BSMT, should I take up the BS degree in Aviation?

      Take PPL first and then pass the exam so you become a licensed private pilot. Then take CPL, pass the exam and become a licensed commercial pilot.

      Hi Tom and Mav. Nasa and Airlink are very good pilot aschools here though I think it doesn't matter where school you'll go as long as you'll pass the pilot examination, then you're it. The pilot licensed is the most important thing.

      @John, sorry I didn't make update for a while. The figures I mentioned where displayed on their flight school website I wonder why they would change it. Maybe because you're Canadian?

      @Hassan hi. It would be possible. I suggest you try to talk with the flight school and have you on their training while you wait for your high school certificate.
