Aviation at USQ
Hear from our students on what it's like to study aviation with USQ.
A career in Aviation can be enormously rewarding, challenging and life changing! USQ's Bachelor of Aviation allows you to choose to either take on a program that trains you for a career as a Pilot, in the Flight Operations Major or to take on a ground based role via the Aviation Management Major.
Our degree will see you undertaking Aviation specific courses from the beginning of your time here with us at USQ. You will have the opportunity to study areas such as airline and airport operations, safety management and (if you choose) to learn to fly! Our professional development program forms part of each of your University courses and you will receive credit for professional development. You will learn from current and former Airline, Military and instructor pilots and Aviation managers who are not simply highly-acclaimed academics but professionals in their field.
See and experience the aviation industry first-hand by flying in our world-class flight simulator in your first year of study!
The first of its kind in Queensland, USQ’s simulator, a narrow body jet, is able to replicate an entire flight, both normal and abnormal scenarios, while completing checks and procedures just like airline pilots do.
