This partnership program offers students an exciting career path to aspiring pilots, providing selected students with access to experienced pilots during their degree with an intensive 12-week airline transition course and employment with QantasLink as first officers flying the airline’s Dash 8 200/300 or Q400 fleet.
Bendigo flight training is our newest training site and is now ready for Semester 1, 2020 intakes. Students will take to the skies in newly acquired Cessna 172s, and have access to the RMIT aircraft fleet in Point Cook.
Point Cook Airfield is a modern, purpose-built pilot training complex at the former home of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) No 1 Flying Training School. With 4500 feet of airspace, the airfield allows unrestricted training manoeuvres.
RMIT Flight Training has been training pilots since 1994 and has successfully trained over 1000 pilots.
The flight training is conducted in single engine aircraft (C172S Cessna Skyhawk and C182T Cessna Skylane) and aerobatic aircraft (8KCAB Super Decathlon).
After the Commercial Pilot’s Licence, the optional instrument rating is completed in the Frasca 242 flight simulator and the twin-engine PA44-180 Piper Seminole.
My favourite flight was actually my second solo, when I got to do a few laps.
Captain Shubh Saxena talks about his journey from studying at RMIT to flying the Bombardier Q400 with QantasLink.
