AWA Trains Commercially Employable Pilots!

At Australian Wings Academy we don’t simply aim to produce qualified pilots, we aim to produce commercially employable pilots. Utilising new generation training aircraft, a specially developed integrated PPL and CPL syllabus, blended learning methodologies and boasting some of the most experienced instructors and management staff in the country, our reputation for producing highly trained, professional pilots now precedes us.

Flying schools aren’t all the same! While each may have the ability to train you for the licence or rating you seek, the aircraft, instructor experience, syllabus design and delivery methods between different schools are considerably different.

AWA is becoming increasingly in demand by charter operators looking for pilots that are job ready. The feedback that we receive is that our systems and training provides employers with a great quality and high standard of pilot. AWA graduates are commercially prepared which gives the employer a good foundation to work on.

Entry Requirements

  • Undergo the Symbiotics Adapt online pilot aptitude assessment
  • Be 18 years of age at the time of receiving the qualification
  • Hold a CASA Class 1 Medical

The on-line Symbiotics Adapt assessment would be at a cost to the candidate and would take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. The assessment is designed to give you an early indication of your potential ability to pilot an aircraft. It contains elements to assess personality, skills and motivation.

If you would like to express interest in any of our courses just fill in the online application form and we will send you further information.
