Learning to fly requires experience in the air and groundings in the industry.
We believe a commercial flying course should take you from foundation to pilot licence to professional career. That’s why we offer Victoria's only bachelor degree designed specifically to train you as a commercial pilot at Swinburne.
Our professional piloting degree is an opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills needed to become a commercial pilot. We provide you with commercial flying training at the CAE Oxford Aviation Academy within Moorabbin Airport. You’ll gain access to 40 aircraft as well as state-of-the-art simulators. The busy flying environment at Moorabbin is great preparation for a career as a commercial pilot.
Graduating with a degree will prepare you for aspects of your career beyond the cockpit. You’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the aviation industry – Swinburne graduates are highly regarded by industry for this reason.
By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to a commercial flying career. Future opportunities include pilot and management roles within the aviation industry.
