Australian Wings Academy - Come fly with us!
Australian Wings Academy (AWA) is a professional Pilot Training Academy. We specialise in flight training for Airline cadets, and Commercial and Private Pilots.
AWA is a registered Training Organisation (RTO) in the state of Queensland, Australia and a CRICOS (Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students) provider. This accreditation allows AWA to bring international students in to Australia on an extended visa.
Australian Wings Academy is based at the Gold Coast Airport located in the Coolangatta control zone on the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland Australia. The Academy has been operating since 1980, formerly known as Gold Coast Aviation Centre.
The Gold Coast offers fantastic all year round weather with one of the best climates in the world for pilot training and widely acknowledged as Australia's premier tourist destination. There is plenty of part time work for students, and it offers a great lifestyle.
AWA has the best Airline Pilot Flight Training facilities in Australia, boasting new classrooms, briefing rooms and a state of the art dual Synthetic Flight Trainer. Australian Wings Academy offers flight training, ground school classes, simulator training, instructor courses and a jet bridging course.
With the current world-wide pilot shortage, there has never been a better time to learn to fly and there is no better place to learn to fly.
International Students Welcome
For many years Australia has been one of the worlds leading Aviation countries with the Australian CPL highly regarded around the world and recognised by the ICAO. Many airline pilots flying for major airlines around the world started their career by obtaining their Australian CPL.
AWA currently offers overseas students a Diploma of Aviation which encompasses the CASA CPL & Command Multi-IR, or an Australian Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL). Our syllabus is specifically tailored to "placing the student in the right hand seat of a commercial multi crew transport aircraft". We achieve this by incorporating a significantly higher amount of practical IFR into the CPL syllabus. Take a Look at our Courses for more information.
Some of the most modern Air Traffic Control systems have been implemented in Australia. This provides ideal training conditions as the skies are not yet crowded, disrupting training with high traffic conditions.

Australian Wings Academy provides students with access to a large fleet of aircraft enabling students to get through the course in the shortest possible time with no shortage of flying instructors. Australia has no limits to the numbers of students to pass exams and no quotas to the numbers of licences issued.
Now more than ever studying for your CPL in Australia, Australian Wings Academy's course fees compare very favorably with studying in the United States or elsewhere.
Australian Wings Academy Accreditations
* AWA is a Registered Training organization (RTO) in the state of Queensland

* As an RTO / CRISCOS registered body we are subject to many additional audits and requirements over and above those imposed on non registered school by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). This has led to us developing a very complex matrix of competencies in order to satisfy all of the regulators allowing us to quickly reconstruct the program to satisfy the special requirements of international students.
