We have made some exciting changes to our Aviation degree. From 2018, the Bachelor of Aviation (Flight) replaces the Bachelor of Aviation (Pilot) for international students.

This new degree includes practical flying within the first year, through a course called ‘Flight Experience’. With no additional fee, this course will add 15-20 hours to a student’s flying log book, leading to their first solo flight. Those not wishing to fly can choose an alternative elective.

Students will also still have the option to obtain a CASA Commercial Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) - CPL(A) alongside their bachelor’s degree. This is done through our partner, Flight Training Adelaide (FTA), at an additional cost. The 15-20 flying hours accumulated in the ‘Flight Experience’ course will count towards the CPL, saving students both time and money.

Prior to the commencement of the ‘Flight Experience’ course students must complete a CASA Class II Medical Test and remain compliant with the Aviation Academy’s Drug and Alcohol Management Plan (DAMP).
