Congratulations to the seven students who recently undertook their trial instruction flight (TIF) in preparation for possible commencement of flight training.

Highlights from the SMGS 2019 Aviation Program include:
– 2 students from over 400 applicants were selected for 10 pilot cadetships with Jetstar
– 1 student now flying the 787 Dreamliner for Qantas
– 2 students have flown solo and are currently completing their RA-Aus Pilot Certificate
– 1 student has now completed the RA-Aus Pilot Certificate and their RA-Aus Cross Country & Passenger Carrying Endorsement
– 7 new students undertook a trial instruction flight (TIF) in preparation for possible commencement of flight training
– 6 students have now completed and gained their RePL (commercial drone licence) qualification
– 7 students are presently working towards their RePL qualification and are due to be assessed early next year in Term 1.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the expert guidance and leadership from SMGS Head of Aviation, Mr Phil Ryrie.

We would also like to thank Martin Hughs, our phenomenal flight instructor from Alpine Aviation Australia and John Fleming, our RePL trainer and assessor.
