Career Opportunites

Our graduates are highly sought after in the aviation industry. Employment opportunities for graduates are strong and will continue to increase, according to Boeing’s market outlook for 2010-2029.

After completing necessary flight training alongside the Bachelor of Aviation (Pilot), graduates can find employment with commercial airlines, agricultural services, aerial surveying services, aeromedical services and government agencies.

Our graduates have also developed successful non-flying aviation careers in flight operations, airline administration, aviation management, air operations dispatch and air traffic control. Our graduates have been employed in some of the world’s leading airlines such as QANTAS, Cathay Pacific, Malaysian Airlines, British Airways, Singapore Airlines, National Jet, Alliance, and Virgin Blue Airlines.
