Brisbane, Australia, 28 July 2017: International airline pilot training organisation Airways Aviation is bringing its global scholarship programme to Australia.

Entitled “Career of your life”, the scheme from Airways Aviation Australia invites aspiring pilots from across the country to submit an application for the chance to follow the career they’ve always dreamt about. Prospective candidates must apply before 31 October 2017 for the opportunity to win a bursary of $AU35,000 towards the cost of an AV150215 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) offered at the company’s training facilities on the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.

Leo O’Reilly, General Manager, Airways Aviation Australia, says:

“We fully understand that for many, financial constraints can make it difficult to follow a career as a pilot and are therefore delighted to be offering this opportunity in Australia.

“We encourage all interested applicants to attend one of our Open Days, taking place at both our Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast Academies on 23 September and 7 October respectively. There they will be able to meet our world-class course instructors and get a taste of what it would be like to learn to how to fly in the most idyllic locations available.”

Following the initial online application, Airways Aviation will invite those candidates whose application meets their preliminary selection criteria to its Gold Coast Academy or Brisbane CREW Assessment Centre to take the industry-standard COMPASS test. Once the test results are reviewed, only the top-scoring candidates will be invited to continue the process, with a presentation and panel interview in Brisbane as the final stage.

Tony Powell, Chief Flying Instructor, Airways Aviation Australia, says:

“The course has been carefully designed alongside industry professionals to ensure that our graduates leave fully equipped with the skills, knowledge and qualifications required for a prosperous career as an airline pilot.
