The Civil Avi­a­tion Author­ity of the Philip­pines (CAAP) has ap­proved the re­quest of Mac­tan-based In­di­ana Aero­space Univer­sity (IAU) to drop flow­ers from the skies when the im­age of the Señor Sto. Niño crosses the bor­der of the flu­vial route from the Naval Forces in Lapu-Lapu City to Birhen sa Regla Shrine and the whole airstrip of Mac­tan Cebu Har­bor Chan­nel dur­ing the flu­vial pro­ces­sion on Satur­day, Jan­uary 20 from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.

In grant­ing IAU’s re­quest, CAAP Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Capt. Jim C. Sy­diongco de­clared the airspace of Mac­tan Cebu Har­bor Chan­nel as a “No Fly Zone” from 6 a.m. on Satur­day in or­der to avoid traf­fic conges­tion at the Mac­tan Cebu In­ter­na­tional Air­port while the two IAU train­ing air­crafts --- RPC2991 to be pi­loted by Capt. Julius C. Kailel and RPC50 to be pi­loted by Capt. Golda Meir Igot, Capt. Re­mus Vince Re­selosa and Capt.

Capt. Marc Uy, Chief Flight In­struc­tor of IAU, and an ar­dent devo­tee of Señor Sto. Niño is re­quest­ing all devo­tees to send flow­ers/prayer pe­ti­tions al­ready packed in sacks so that it would be eas­ier and more con­ve­nient for the pi­lots to drop these to the ship car­ry­ing the im­age of the Señor Sto. Niño.
