Flight training on world-class facilities Because of its size, Australia has hundreds of airports, many with world-class training facilities. The highest priority for all training is following regulations and safety procedures. 84 International students choose fl ight training in Australia for many reasons, including: • Australia’s great climate maximises the number of flying days • training costs compete favourably with US fees • an Australian pilot’s licence is highly regarded internationally with other ICAO countries • modern air traffi c control systems are in use and the skies are relatively uncrowded • Australia offers many different types of terrain to navigate across a large country. Bankstown Airport in Sydney, for example, has a number of fl ight schools including Profl ite Australia. When students learn in this environment, they gain invaluable industry experience. This busy airport has four runways, extensive taxiway and apron areas, and a thriving business park, which is home to over 170 successful businesses. Profl ite Australia offers the Certifi cate IV in Transport and Distribution (Aviation Flight Operations). The course includes a Commercial Pilot License (theory and practical), Night VFR Rating and Command Instrument Rating (multi-engine or single). You can also add Instructor Rating and ATPL theory to your course. International students say Australia is an excellent place to take off in an aviation career because of the technologically- advanced facilities, qualifi ed instructors and great range of practical courses. ¦ INSTITUTIONS AND COURSES
