Training and facilities
Our Point Cook and Bendigo campuses provide students with easy access to airspace, terrain and urban development, maximising your navigational experiences.
Point Cook flight training facilities consist of a modern, purpose-built pilot training complex at the former home of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) No. 1 Flight Training School.
The vast airspace over the airfield allows unrestricted training manoeuvres, minimising congestion, delays. With limited number of flight school operators at the Point Cook base, each lesson will allow for more take-offs and landings per hour than many other airfields.
Our Bendigo campus offers students the opportunity to train with newly acquired Cesna 172 with glass cockpits in addition to our existing fleet and a brand new runway. Training routes include both regional and rural airstrips, including Swan Hill, Mildura, Shepparton, Horsham and the Riverina in NSW.
Students will attend the city campus one day per week for a select number of non-flying related subjects. This will enable you to access RMIT Student Services and other facilities.
