The second batch of PATTS Interns flew to Beijing China last January 25, 2015 for six (6) months of training in the Airbus. After the rigid screening and interviews conducted by PATTS and ABEC (Airbus Beijing Engineering Center) officials respectively, three (3) new engineers were selected for the training at Airbus Beijing. Engineers Sittie Bhasma Kahar, Ryan Tronco, Dhan Erick Gonzales were accompanied by PATTS President & COO, Engr. Jose Eduardo S. Valdez, Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Emelita I. Javier and BS Air Transportation Chairperson, Engr. Joy Cosme G. Amores, Jr. They will replace the three interns who finished their 6 months training which started last August 2014 but will join one intern, Engr. Paul Andrew Salino who was invited to extend his training for another 6 months. ABEC is a joint venture between Airbus China Limited, Hafei Aviation Industry Company Ltd., Jiangxi Hondu Aviation Industry Co. Ltd and China Aviation Industry Corporation.
This internship opportunity will surely open the doors in the near future to a brighter career for PATTS Aeronautical Engineers, since the Philippines has recently been picked by Toulouse based Airbus as the site of a new training center in the Asia Pacific region.
