Aviation Australia skills and trains domestic and international students for employment in the aviation industry worldwide.
This is particularly important for Queensland where there are more than 900 aviation and aerospace companies contributing around $6 billion to the Queensland economy each year and employing more than 16,500 Queenslanders. Aviation Australia supports these companies and others within Australia and overseas by offering basic and advanced training for aircraft maintenance engineers and flight attendants. Over 85% of Aviation Australia’s graduates are employed in the aviation industry.
In the last ten years, Aviation Australia has trained or supported the training of over 30,000 aviation personnel for more than 150 customers, both civil and military worldwide. Aviation Australia is the largest initial maintenance engineering and flight attendant training provider in the Southern Hemisphere.
However, Aviation Australia isn't just a training company for engineers and flight attendants. We are a community that breeds interaction, education, and discussion within the aviation industry. We work with customers globally, through all stages of their training, and across all aspects of the aviation industry.
We are currently expanding our facilities and range of training products to meet the needs of our domestic and international customers, reinvesting the proceeds of our business back into the training system to continue to improve the products and services we offer to the industry.
