Degree Program Objectives
The Aviation industry is increasingly demanding commercial pilots to possess University-level qualifications. The Griffith University, in conjunction with approved flight training providers like the RQAC, has developed an integrated Aviation Degree program that aims to develop skills and competence in aviation theory and airmanship skills. The Degree program is structured to enable students to obtain the necessary CASA licences to qualify as a Commercial Pilot and cover tertiary subjects in the areas of Science, Business and Aviation.
Course Flying Training
The RQAC is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) approved by the Queensland Government’s Department of Employment and Training (DET). Training is delivered using nationally recognised training packages and in accordance with CASA Day VFR Syllabus.
