The training programs at MFS are specifically developed to meet the needs of the industry.

We are one of the few flight training organizations that offers Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) courses and Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory courses with one of the most respected teachers in Australia today. This is why we have been selected by three airlines to train their cadets.

Studying at MFS, you can attend theoretical classes and practical flight training during weekdays. Students take the opportunity to fly on the weekends or evenings too.
