Associate Degree of Aviation students accept that if they cannot access CAE Oxford Aviation Academy's Services for any reason (outlined in CAE Oxford Aviation's Training Services Agreement) they will be ineligible to graduate or get an award for Associate Degree of Aviation (AB-AV) from Swinburne.
Graduates would also have met the competency requirements to be eligible for the vocational award of Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Aeroplane Licence) and Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Flight Operations). Upon completion of the associate degree program graduates would either undertake a jet type rating before commencing line pilot operations with an airline or commence employment as a Grade 3 Flight Instructor (depending on the practicum elective chosen).
Please note that this course is only available to applicants who are accepted into either a pilot cadet training program with an organisation holding an internationally recognised Air Operators Certificate (AOC) of transport category aeroplanes, or a flight instructor cadet training program with an organisation holding a recognised Air Operators Certificate (AOC) with approval to conduct flight training.
