History

On 12 April 1948, the late President Manuel Roxas directed the renaming of Lipa Air Base to Fernando field and subsequently, to Fernando Air Base in honor of Lt Col Basilio Fernando, one of the pioneers of Philippine aviation.

In 1952, Fernando Air Base became a training base called the 100th Training Wing where training units and other support units of the Philippine Air Force were grouped.

On 21 September 1999, the 100th Training Wing was deactivated and the Air Education and Training Command was established with a greater responsibility and wider scope of training task.

A barangay was established in the base named Barangay Fernando.
