Diplomas of Aviation

Full-time study professional licences and ratings

Ready to kick-start your career?

With a 50 year history of training pilots, SFC specialise in professional flying courses which create the foundations of a rewarding career as a pilot.

We deliver both the AVI50219 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) and the AVI50519 Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Rating) courses. These are full-time accredited courses which integrate aeronautical knowledge classes and practical flying training, and are designed for students wanting to make a career out of being a pilot.

Schofields Flying Club Ltd (RTO #90866), trading as SFC, is an approved provider of VET Student Loans for both the AVI50219 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) and the AVI50519 Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Rating) courses.

Course caps and eligibility criteria apply, please submit an enquiry or speak to our course advisors for more information. VET Student Loans will not be approved for students who do not meet eligibility requirements. A VET Student Loan gives rise to a VETSL debt which continues to be a debt due to the Commonwealth until it is repaid. For full details of the VET Student Loan scheme, and to decide if it is right for you, SFC strongly recommends reading the Australian Government’s VET Student Loan Information Booklet.
