The Flight One Academy, now incorporating ICAT Aviation College, delivers a Part 147 aligned Diploma of Aeroskills programme with Avionics and Mechanical majors. The programme is usually delivered as a Double Diploma of Aeroskills that covers both mechanical and avionics specialties.
To maximise training efficiency and graduate outcomes, our Aeroskills programme is delivered to Diploma standards only. The Certificate IV in Aeroskills is therefore incorporated into the Diploma. The Certificate IV may be made available as a separate qualification on request.
Training is conducted at Archerfield Airport in Brisbane, Australia, via face to face classroom learning by experienced aviation trainers and supported by operational aircraft engineers utilising authentic training equipment to supplement theory training where relevant.
As part of a broader aviation group that includes VIP and business chartering, airport FBO services and CASA approved aircraft maintenance and repair operations, we are able to offer a genuinely industry driven, traditional aircraft engineering programmes with integrated theory and practical training to ensure that you are job ready upon graduation.

ABOUT AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers carry out the important process of repairing, maintaining and releasing aircraft to fly safely.
Avionics Aircraft Maintenance Engineers carry out examinations, maintenance and repairs of the electrical components of aircraft such as on board computers, radio, radar and GPS directional equipment.
Mechanical Aircraft Maintenance Engineers predominantly carry out examinations, maintenance and repairs of the mechanical components of aircraft such as gas turbine jet and piston engines, frames, hydraulic, pneumatic, fuel and other associated systems.
RECOGNITION FOR PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
The Flight One Academy Aircraft Engineering Department is run by a team of current and former aircraft engineers from a range of backgrounds including civil and military. Our aim is simple – to deliver the training the industry wants and expects.
AMEs with well documented previous training and/or experience who wish to formalise or upgrade qualifications may be eligible for Recognition for Prior Learning toward this qualification. Find out more on our RPL Services Page>>.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE CRITERIA
All applicants must hold a pass grade in Australian high school English or equivalent.
Applicants from non-Australian backgrounds may be required to provide an IELTS Certificate (Academic Module) no more than 1 year old demonstrating a score of at least 6.0 overall with no band score below 5.5.
Please note: You may be exempt from the English language entry criteria if you studied for the last 2 years in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Canada or the United States of America enrolled in a formal qualification. Exemptions are assessed case by case. The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) requires that individuals from non-English speaking backgrounds seeking an Australian Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence must present an IELTS score of 6.0 with no band score below 6.0 prior to being issued a licence.
