Aviation Updates Philippines is an aviation news provider with our utmost goal that is to inform the traveling public with accurate insights about the Philippine aviation industry. As our slogan suggests, "Foremost in Aviation News", the team is apprising our fellow air passengers with the latest credible information gathered and researched.

The team was founded on May 24, 2012 on Facebook. A month later, the team decided to open up a YouTube channel where regular updates were posted. Due to a small fan base on Facebook before, the page was nearly shut down. However, the team scrapped the plan and continued its journey on providing the most reliable aviation news in the Philippines. As of writing, AUP's Facebook followers already reached more than 19,400 people.
Our new and updated logo for Aviation Updates Philippines, first unveiled on December 17, 2017. This logo change coincides with the milestone on achieving more than 10,000 Facebook likes. This new icon is based from a friendly yet futuristic design; thus, looking forward for the future of the Philippine aviation.
