The Air Education, Training and Doctrine Command warmly welcomes Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Gonzales Recto during his visit in Fernando Air Base. He was accompanied by the Mayor of Lipa City, Mayor Eric B Africa and Heads of other government agencies, both local and provincial. The purpose of his first official visit is to ensure the speedy completion of the LTCOL BASILIO FERNANDO AIR BASE CIVILIAN EDUCATION CENTER. The said educational hub is being constructed at the 2.2 hectares of land which was donated by the PAF through AETDC. The said facility is composed of 3 schools namely: FAB Elementary School, FAB Integrated National High School and Philippine State College of Aeronautics.

Senator Recto gives importance to education. It is evident through the many school buildings that were constructed within the City of Lipa which he and Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto have initiated. As a constant benefactor of AETDC, Senator Recto chose the Command as a beneficiary of significant and key projects in order to fully perform its mandate. He continually supports the development of Fernando Air Base towards making the Command a world class education and training institution of the Philippine Air Force.

With the completion of the LTCOL BASILIO FERNANDO AIR BASE CIVILIAN EDUCATION CENTER, AETDC Personnel and their dependents and most importantly the neighboring barangays around the vicinity of FAB will be the beneficiaries of a modernized free public education in the primary, secondary and tertiary levels – a more responsive educational hub not only of the Philippine Air Force but of the bigger community as well.
