The fifth batch of PATTS Interns flew to Beijing China last March 27, 2016 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, two (2) new engineers were selected for the training at Airbus Beijing. Engr. Ramon Kristoffer Q. Castro and Mr. Amir Mizhael U. Panganiban were accompanied by the PATTS VP for Student Affairs, Dr. Emelita I. Javier. 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.
