Bachelor of Business (Aviation Management) and Commercial Pilot Licence commences in July 2016

Gold Coast, June 2nd, 2016: Airways Aviation is launching a CASA Commercial Pilot Licence with a Bachelor’s degree in Business, in collaboration with Southern Cross University (SCU), Australia, in a push to expand its high-quality education to future pilots.

The programme offers students a Bachelor of Business majoring in Aviation Management from SCU, alongside the CASA certified Airways Aviation Certificate IV in Aviation (Aeroplane) and Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Flight Operations).
At SCU students will learn critical reasoning, communication and the professional skills needed to succeed in any business environment, with specialised skills in aviation management. With Airways Aviation, students will have the chance to achieve three pilot licence types as their skill level increases; from a Recreational Pilot Licence, through to a Private Pilot Licence, and finally a Commercial Pilot Licence. The Diploma of Aviation offers advanced flight training conducted on a multi-engine class aircraft.

Students on the programme will have access to world-class facilities including a Boeing 737 simulator at Airways Aviation’s Gold Coast training base, as well as instruction from the country’s finest trainers and lecturers.

Airways Aviation CEO Ian Cooper, says:

“We pride ourselves on producing fully industry-ready pilots and this course, supported by the first-class facilities at our Gold Coast base and access to the excellent teaching staff at SCU, demonstrates our dedication to the industry. With our unrivalled access to small, uncontrolled airports and international airports, students will have the best of both worlds as they embark on a career in aviation.”

SCU Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Lee says:

“This is an exciting development at the Gold Coast. There is a growing demand for commercial pilots, and with the proximity of our Gold Coast campus to the airport and Airways Aviation’s flight school, we are ideally positioned to respond. We are pleased to be working with Airways Aviation.”

Alongside its Australian base on the Gold Coast, Airways Aviation has a strong portfolio of pilot training academies across the globe, including EASA-certified schools in Spain and at its new global HQ at London Oxford Airport, UK. The Australian flight school is both CASA and EASA-certified. Airways Aviation boasts a worldwide network of foundation schools in locations including China and Japan, where cadets can complete ground-based training before commencing flight training at one of the training academies. Plans are in place to bring another 30 foundation schools online within the next 18 months.
