Diploma of Aviation

(Commercial Pilot Licence - Aeroplane)

This course comprises of the Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), Private Pilot Licence (PPL) and Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) curriculum. (Note the tuition fees for this course include the costs of the RPL and PPL units of study.

During the CPL stage, students start flying faster and more complex aircraft such as the Piper Arrow, Cessna 206 or Tobago TB-10.

The theoretical knowledge required by a commercial pilot is significantly more complex than a private pilot. This section of the course takes longer, as students learn theory to a far greater depth.

This part of the course can be the most fun for students. Now that they hold a Private Pilot License, students typically go in small groups on fly-aways. These fly-aways can be to places like the Gold Coast or Uluru. Students need to have practice being able to navigate considerable distances and be responsible for aircraft over long trips.

This course is designed for students that have never flown before - it includes the Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), Private Pilot Licence (PPL) and Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) curriculum.

The Pre-Requisites for the course are;

  • A current Class 1 Australian Medical
  • Unless secondary school has been conducted in English, an IELTS overall score of 6.5. (either academic or general assessments)
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Successfully completed Year 12 (applicants will be required to provide a Senior Secondary Certificate of Education) or successfully completed a Vocational or Higher Education qualification of at least a Certificate IV which was taught in English
