“After my training at Airways Aviation, I planned to expand my knowledge in aviation. The new partnership between Airways and Griffith University finds most appropriate to me. Griffith provides a lot of career opportunities in flying and management positions with different organisations especially Qantas Future Pilot Program (QFPP). Flying credits from airways helps me in choosing different subjects focusing mainly on the managerial and operational side of the organisation.”  – Terin Tennyson
