Flying for Work

The Western Australian Aviation College has been providing nationally recognised training since 1995.

We specialise in delivering high-quality ground training, while partnering with the Royal Aero Club of WA to provide practical flight training. Together this partnership has more than 90 years of flight training experience.

Learning to Fly

Learning to fly is often thought of as expensive, but when you examine it objectively against other sports, hobbies or career qualifications, the cost of becoming a pilot is quite reasonable if it’s something you’re motivated to do.

Even though we are one of the largest flight training organisations in Australia, we pride ourselves on the personal attention that we give our members. The size of the Royal Aero Club of WA group allows our members to have access to the very best facilities and a range of training options. We can assist you in attaining a Private Pilot Licence, Commercial Pilot Licence, Licence Conversions and a range of endorsements and ratings, to provide you with a fully comprehensive service.

Being able to fly is a challenging and exciting pastime and a rewarding career. We can help you achieve your aviation dreams.
