Article in partnership with OMNI Aviation

If you know or follow me/my articles long enough, you’d know that I’ve always wanted to fly (be a Pilot). All those dreams when I was still in grade school became more vivid when I was given a chance to feature a HUGE event in Angeles, Pampanga:


This event is the annual Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, now in their 22nd year!

The PIHABF started in 1994, with the main goal of jumpstarting the local economy and uplifting the morale of communities in Central Luzon, after the eruption of Mt.

Every event needs the BEST location, which is also a deciding factor on whether people/guests would visit or not. That is why OMNI Aviation Complex in Angeles, Pampanga is the perfect venue. OMNI Aviation Complex can be accessed easily via land or air transportation. There’s P2P Bus Service, commercial flights, or if you choose to use your own vehicle, you’ll never get lost! Learn more about the event location on the last page of this post.
