Overview

RMIT Flight Training has successfully trained over 3,000 pilots since 1994.

Your career as a professional pilot

Start your career as a professional pilot or an instructor while you work towards flying in a commercial operation or airline.

Designed in collaboration with industry, the Associate Degree in Aviation will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a career as a pilot.

Blending aviation theory with practical flying lessons, your studies in this associate degree will prepare you to undertake the CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) Commercial Pilot Licence theory and flight tests. In addition to your pilot training, you may also undertake subjects in instrument and instructor ratings to further your knowledge and capabilities in this exciting industry.

Flight Training - Jess Dettmer

Jess Dettmer is studying the Associate Degree in Aviation (Professional Pilots), gaining the skills she needs to achieve CASA certification as a Commercial Pilot and start her career in the sky.

Details

Through the Associate Degree in Aviation (Professional Pilots) you will be well-situated for employment given the continuing shortage of pilots and flight instructors in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

In this flight training qualification you will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to apply for a recreational pilot licence (RPL), a private pilot licence (PPL) and gain the aeronautical knowledge, practical skills and appropriate behaviours required to achieve the CASA certification as a Commercial Pilot. In the final semester you will have a choice between instrument rating (IREX) with a frozen Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) or Instructor Rating (FIR).

This associate degree meets the requirements of the CASA Part 61 Flight Crew Licencing and involves both classroom theory and practical flight training.

You'll be trained in the single- and multi-engine aircraft including the Cessna 172S, Cessna 182T, Decathlon 8KCAB and PA-44 Piper Seminole (multi-engine).

You will have access to a twin-engine PA44-Piper Seminole and flight training devices including the Frasca 242 flight simulator and FM210 - Touch Trainer.

Subjects are taught through lectures, seminars, tutorials, online reading, workshops, practical and interactive sessions.

Ongoing assessments include examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, flight test and practical assignments.

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.

RMIT Flight Training is authorised by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) as Part 141/142 organisation to provide pilot training.

You can undertake industry-supported project work within the aviation industry while studying the theory modules.

Recently RMIT has been included in the Qantas Future Pilot Program, allowing for direct industry mentoring and networking for all interested students in our flight training program.

This course is available at both Point Cook and Bendigo campuses, with non-flying related subjects held one day per week at the Melbourne City campus.

 

Full-time study of this course typically comes to approximately 35 hours per week.

This includes two or three days of theory classes at the Bendigo or Point Cook campuses, one day of theory classes at the Melbourne City campus, and one or two flying days. Weekend flying may be available.

Students should also budget three hours of independent study each night.

Additional information

If you are successful in obtaining a place in this program you must meet a number of professional compliance requirements upon commencement of your studies.

CASA Class 1 Medical Examination

Those offered a place in this program are required to undergo a CASA Class 1 Medical Examination by a medical practitioner known as a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME).

In RMIT’s Aviation program, we recommend that students apply for a Class 1 medical certificate prior to commencing the program.

Obtaining this level of certification will give the student confidence that there is no existing ailment that could prevent them from completing their Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) training or continuing their flying career to a higher level.

RMIT University does not accept responsibility for students who enrol but cannot complete the program due to an inability to receive a CASA Class 1 medical certificate.

Note: In most cases having minor vision problems, such as those requiring you to wear glasses, will not prevent you getting a licence. The medical examination ensures that there are no conditions that prevent you from operating an aircraft safely.

Students are expected to source and arrange their own Aviation Medical through a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner. Although not required at the commencement of training, the student must hold a valid aviation medical certification to progress through the various tests associated with different licence levels and to exercise the rights and privileges associated with certain licences.

There are two levels of aviation medical certification applicable to pilots. These are:

Class 1 – required for the issue and the exercising of rights and privileges of the Airline Transport Pilot Licence and Commercial Pilot Licence

Class 2 – required for the issue and the exercising of rights and privileges of the Private Pilot Licence and the Flight Radio Operators Licence. This class of medical is also required to exercise the rights and privileges of the Student Pilot Licence at certain levels of training, but is not required for initial issue.

A valid aviation medical certification is obtained by undergoing a medical examination performed by a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME). You must specify to the DAME which class of medical certification you are applying for. The DAME will advise you of tests etc required to complete the examination.

In RMIT's Aviation program, we recommend that students apply for a Class 1 medical prior to commencing the program.

To graduate you need to complete the following core courses, which total 144 credit points. You also need to complete 48 credit points from one of three specialised streams (Instrument, Instructor or Academic). Fees for these streams are detailed in the sections below. 

The fee charged will depend on the year you take the course (e.g. if you take a course in 2022 you will be charged the 2022 course fee, and if you take a course in 2023 you will be charged the 2023 course fee).

If you fail a course, you will be required to repeat it in order to be accredited and you will be charged the fee for that course again.

In addition to tuition fees, you will be charged an annual student services and amenities fee (SSAF), which is used to maintain and enhance services and amenities that improve your experience as an RMIT student.

The SSAF is calculated based on your enrolment load and the maximum fee for 2022 is $315.

For more information about calculating your actual SSAF see Paying SSAF.

You may also be required to purchase other items related to your program, including field trips, textbooks and equipment. These additional fees and expenses vary from program to program.

FEE-HELP loans

You may be eligible to apply for the FEE-HELP loan scheme.

FEE-HELP loans are available to eligible students, such as Australian citizens or holders of an Australian permanent humanitarian visa.

The 2022 HELP loan limit for Associate Degree of Aviation (Professional Pilots) students is $156,847.

A 20% loan fee applies, which does not count towards the HELP loan limit.

For more information visit Commonwealth assistance (HELP loans) or Study Assist.

SA-HELP loans

You may be eligible to apply to defer payment of the SSAF through the SA-HELP loan scheme. If you use SA-HELP, the amount will be added to your accumulated HELP debt.

How does a HELP loan work?

If your FEE-HELP and/or SA-HELP loan application is successful, on your behalf, the Australian Government will pay RMIT your tuition fees up to the HELP loan limit and/or your SSAF. This amount will become part of your accumulated HELP debt.

You will only start repaying your accumulated HELP debt to the Australian Government once you earn above the minimum income threshold for repayment, which is set each year by the Australian Government (this applies even if you are still studying).

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) will calculate your compulsory repayment for the year and include this on your income tax notice.

For more information about loan repayment options visit Commonwealth assistance (HELP loans) or Study Assist.

RMIT awards more than 2000 scholarships every year to recognise academic achievement and assist students from a variety of backgrounds.

Tuition fees

  • The annual tuition fee for 2022 is AU$69,120.
  • The total indicative tuition fee for 2022 commencement is AU$138,240.

The tuition fee includes the program's allotted flight hours. If students need more flight hours these will be incurred as additional costs.
