I was recommended to study here at Airways Aviation from a family friend of my father’s whose son had completed his flight training at the Gold Coast. Airways Aviation had just opened their doors to pilot training (aeroplane) so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to go and apply. My father also knew some of the rotary students studying at Airways Aviation, who again recommend the academy.
I had started my flying in South Africa, however, I wanted to continue my flying with a reputable and quality school. What appealed to me about Airways Aviation was their integrated CASA program. I preferred this program to modular training after assessing both training schedules. Whilst I had a handful of recommendations to study at Airways Aviation, I still wasn’t sure of the industry, so took the initiative to research everything I could about becoming a pilot online. I wanted to make an educated decision.
Upon coming across the Airways Aviation website, I filled out an enquiry form online. The Dubai team were prompt in their reply and called to arrange a meeting at their Dubai location. This was a great experience as I could speak first hand not only some industry experts but also their flight instructors, getting all the information I needed to form the best decision. I went through everything that was available from both the UK and Australia Academies and decided to go to Australia that week.
One huge selling point of going to Australia was the weather. Whilst the UK would have been great for instrumental flying, Queensland proved 80% of the year to have great flying conditions.
