Construction has begun on a new $10 million Aviation Australia campus at

Brisbane Airport which will provide lecture rooms, a technical training centre,

café and corporate offices. The new facility is expected to be completed next

year and will be a significant extension to Aviation Australia’s current training

centre, with capacity to accommodate an additional 500 students.

The organisation provided training to more than 1000 students last

year across a range of aviation industry specialties including engineering,

security, ground operations and cabin crew. It is the leading aviation training

organisation in the Asia-Pacific and students come from regions including the

Middle East, China and the South Pacific.

CareFlight’s Helicopter Emergency Services Academy will also be based at

the new campus and will be home to Australia’s first Westland 139 helicopter

full flight simulator.


Tamworth, the country music capital of Australia, is just an hour’s

flight from Brisbane now that regional carrier Jetgo has started

direct services between the two cities. Since the direct flights

began in March the airline has already doubled its three-days-a-

week service and added a Sunday return flight as bookings surge

ahead of expectations. Jetgo operates a 36-seater Embraer E135

on the run every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. See

or call 1300 328 000 for bookings.

Terminal takes shape

The $45 million redevelopment of Brisbane

Airport’s International Terminal is on track for

completion by July. Look out for the next issue



, on shelf 1 July, for the big reveal
