AVI50322 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence - Helicopter)

Townsville Helicopters have been partnered with TAFE Queensland (RTO 0275) since 2017 to offer training for AVI50322 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence - Helicopter) and we are proud to say that we have seen over 100 students successfully complete this course.

The course has been designed in conjunction with industry, and directly aligned with CASA requirement. You will complete your training at Townsville Helicopters private facility located at the Townsville Airport. With the tarmac directly outside the hangar doors, taking off for your flight couldn’t be easier. You will also gain valuable experience operating in both Class C and Class G Airspace. 

Why Train Here?

Your training will take you across the city scapes of Townsville, rural areas, mountains and valleys, or over the picturesque coastlines and open waters of the Great Barrier Reef, to the salt pans and coastal swamps where you never know what you might see.

All of this terrain is located within five to ten minutes from the tarmac, meaning no length transit times. With the added bonus of 320 days of sunshine a year.

The successful completion of this course will provide students with the knowledge and practical skills required to embark upon a career as a Commercial Pilot. 

Townsville Helicopters provide the training and assessment of this accredited qualification on behalf of TAFE Queensland (RTO 0275) who will award the qualification upon successful completion.
