FOR peo­ple who thought fly­ing was all about pi­lots, think again.

With the com­plex­ity of elec­tri­cal sys­tems on air­craft, it’s no sur­prise elec­tronic pro­fes­sion­als are needed. For an air­craft to leave the ground, it re­quires an as­tound­ing num­ber of main­te­nance en­gi­neers to work on them, in­clud­ing the vi­tal role of qual­i­fied avion­ics en­gi­neers, other­wise known as elec­tronic pro­fes­sion­als for air­craft.

Ev­ery new air­craft type that comes into ser­vice brings with it cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy such as fly-by-wire, fly-by­light and even ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. Avion­ics en­gi­neer­ing is a field of ex­per­tise where the tempo of change and dis­cov­ery is dy­namic. Study­ing a Cer­tifi­cate IV in Aeroskills — Avion­ics at Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia will put peo­ple right at that cut­ting-edge.

Pro­gress­ing on, the Diploma qual­i­fi­ca­tion un­der­pins the knowl­edge and skills re­quired to be­come an avion­ics li­cenced main­te­nance engi­neer.

To en­rol in Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia’s Jan­uary 2019 in­take, con­tact Lyn Sank by call­ing 3860 0923.

Mean­while, the role of a flight at­ten­dant en­com­passes so much more than what meets the eye, which is why Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia has de­vel­oped a course to meet the un­ex­pected de­mands of the role and to pro­vide con­fi­dence.

“I al­ways thought that be­ing cabin crew would be noth­ing too dif­fi­cult … serv­ing food and drinks, how hard could it be?” Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia flight at­ten­dant alumni, Hannah Spitzke, said.

“I had no idea what I was in for. I learnt so much at Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia; from arm­ing and dis­arm­ing a door, open­ing and closing ex­its, con­duct­ing evac­u­a­tions in the case of an emer­gency … and that was just the start.”

Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia’s cabin crew prepa­ra­tion course places stu­dents in real life sit­u­a­tions, en­abling them to learn how to re­spond to spe­cific sit­u­a­tions.

Not only this, but stu­dents are pro­vided with the op­por­tu­nity to train with in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als on world-class flight safety fa­cil­i­ties – the same fa­cil­i­ties that renowned air­lines use to con­duct their own staff train­ing.

While knowl­edge of the role and the in­dus­try is vi­tal, self-con­fi­dence is just as im­por­tant.

So, for peo­ple who like the idea of work­ing in a di­verse, ex­hil­a­rat­ing and unique role, take the first step to a ca­reer in the sky and en­rol in Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia’s flight at­ten­dant ca­reer train­ing. Tel: 3860 0900 avi­a­tionaus­
