Student Profiles

Gerardo, Colombia

Certificate IV and Diploma of Aviation

I am Gerardo, an international student from Colombia at the Airline Academy of Australia where I study for my commercial pilot licence and multi-engine command instrument ratings through the Certificate IV and Diploma of Aviation. Pilot training is a serious investment but this school is large, reliable and has a history of over 100 years. The instructors are very calm and patient in ground school (theory training) and flying. In my experience, the academy has great facilities, a large fleet and an ideal training airport, which has a tower so we can practise to a professional level, but there are no large airliners, making it much safer at the earlier stages of training. The academy takes safety very seriously and the maintenance of aircraft is well above regulation requirements. Staff and instructors are professional and take the training very seriously, so I feel that I am in safe, competent hands at all times. Brisbane city is really great, with a friendly and relaxed community and lifestyle, good food and plenty of entertainment. Also, there are lots of students and residents from around the world so it has a very international and multicultural feeling. My experience at the academy is very positive!
