The Bachelor of Aviation will equip you for a professional career as a commercial pilot.

You'll undertake commercial flying training at CAE Oxford Aviation Academy, located at Moorabbin Airport, to obtain your Commercial Pilot Licence and operate a multi-crew jet aircraft. Additional elective flying qualifications are available.

You'll study the theory units required by Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) up to and including Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) standard, as well as studies in aviation human factors, aviation management and aviation technology.

Build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects. In this degree, in the Aviation Research Project Part 1 and 2 (AVA40004 and AVA40005), you’ll work on a group project based on real industry problems faced by the aviation industry and organisations including Qantas and Melbourne Airport.

Flying students can access FEE-HELP
Eligible students can elect to enrol in the Graduate Certificate of Aviation (Piloting) to access FEE-HELP – this allows students to defer the cost of all components of their flying training up to the FEE-HELP loan limit.
