Angeles City Flying Club

The Angeles City Flying Club is a non-profit organization promoting light sport aircraft (ultralight, microlight, experimental) aviation within the Philippines. The Angeles City Flying Club is the largest ultralight flying club in the Philippines. It is a non-profit, non-stock corporation certified by the Philippine Air Transportation Office (ATO).

The Angeles City Flying Club is located in Central Luzon just north of Manila, 15 kilometers from Clark Special Economic Zone. The Central Luzon region contains the largest plains area of the Philippines which makes it an ideal place to fly.

The Club offers Sport Pilot Training, ultralight rental, hangar rental and maintenance facilities.

The Club has been operating since 1993 and has some of the most experienced ultralight pilots and maintenance personnel in Asia. There are have three 230 square metre hangars, a clubhouse with office, training room, canteen, and a swimming pool with bamboo huts to shield from the sun.

The Club attracts visitors and new members from the Philippines, and from overseas. Members are from all over the world and include experienced pilots as well as absolute beginners.

A visitor can come for an introduction flight or for complete pilot training. Pilots and students from around the globe spend their vacation in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines and are able to make use of the Club facilities. The area also offers many additional attractions, including diving, cycling, hiking and nightlife.

The weather in Angeles City is what would be expected from the tropics. Good flying conditions are experienced most of the year.

Training CurriculumThe Angeles City Flying Club trains using The Ultralight Pilot’s Flight Training Manual, written by Curtis Hughes and published by the United States Ultralight Association, Inc. (USUA).

The USUA is a highly respected association recognized by the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and is one of the leaders in sport aviation training in the U.S. The Angeles City Flying Club have taken this manual and adapted it to the training environment and Philippine regulations.

The full training course includes at least 30 flying hours.

Those 30 hours must include a minimum of 10 hours dual and 10 hours solo. There is no formal separate ground school; the ground school is conducted in conjunction with the actual flight instruction.

The trainee must pass a written test and physical examination before flying solo. There is no maximum time to complete the course. Trainees are allowed to set their own pace.

Current PilotsMost current general aviation pilots need one to three hours of instruction before a check ride. A log book, pilot license and medical certificate are required.
