Find out what's involved in getting your wings at the RMIT Flight Training Open Day in Point Cook.
If you've ever thought about a career in the sky, now's the time to turn your dream into reality.
At the RMIT Flight Open Day, our experienced flight instructors are on standby to talk to you about your career options in aviation. From careers in crop-dusting, flying charter flights to jumbos jets, or teaching others to fly, there are a range of career opportunities as a professional pilot.
Get a guided tour of RMIT's dedicated flight training facility at Point Cook and learn more about how being the only flight school on a dedicated RAAF base means more take offs and more hours in the air.
On display on the day will be examples from our fleet of planes including the multi-engine Piper Seminole and the Decathlon used for aerobatic manoeuvres.
While you're salivating over that, why not grab a snag from the free sausage sizzle before satisfying your real hunger by entering a draw to win a 45 minute session in a Boeing 737-800 Flight Simulator.
This is a free event. Register your attendance online.
