Qualification Overview

Why Study the Double Diploma of Aviation?

Studying the Double Diploma of Aviation with Flight One Australia is a journey towards becoming a professional pilot through an airline-oriented training system with relevant options and mission-based training syllabus.

Training is conducted in phases aligned to CASA licence and rating requirements; meaning graduates move into industry with nationally recognised qualifications, in addition to CASA pilot licence and relevant ratings and endorsements.

In this signature double qualification, you will integrate the Multi-engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) skill building and assessments into your CPL training. Once achieved and combined with the CPL, the MEIR enables you to undertake commercial flights in poor weather, at night, and in other low visibility conditions in a single or twin engine aircraft for which you are endorsed. This powerful, integrated combination of airline-relevant qualifications provides greater efficiencies and enhanced employability upon graduation.

VET Student Loans

VET Student Loans is available to eligible applicants and provides cover for up to the full course tuition fee amount payable for this packaged double diploma. VET Student Loans is available subject to eligibility requirements and creates a debt that must be repaid to the Commonwealth. The VET Student Loans scheme is not available to international students.

About Commercial Piloting

Commercial pilots carry out the safety critical activity of flight for reward in support of a wide range of clients. The vast array of activities undertaken include charter, aeromedical, passenger transport (including airlines), photography and survey work.

Commercial pilots learn to utilise a broad range of sophisticated electrical components of aircraft such as on board computers, radio and navigational equipment. The demand for qualified pilots is an international trend, and well trained commercial pilot are ideally placed to pursue career paths in general and airline piloting roles.

What is the Multi Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) and why integrate it?

A Multi Engine endorsement provides you with the skills and necessary approval to fly aircraft with more than one engine, therefore carry a greater payload or number of passengers. This programme includes flight training in twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Seneca or the heavier Baron upon request. An Instrument Rating provides you with permission to undertake flights in a much broader range of conditions including at night and in poor weather. For this reason, holders of the Multi Engine Instrument Rating enjoy greater employability as they are more capable and have a greater range of aeronautical experience.


The Double Diploma of Aviation Package programme is designed around the concept of licence readiness – providing each graduate with the CASA theory and associated examinations required for a licence outcome. The programme is built for beginners and provides the ideal platform to launch a career as a professional pilot in the General Aviation or Airline sectors.

The course includes formal theory training aligned to the knowledge requirements within the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations, and assessments that are delivered under Flight One’s CASA Part 141 Flight Training Organisation Approval Certificate. When combined with our extensive practical training, this structure empowers our graduates and prepares them to seize career opportunities as they arise.

To be eligible to apply for a CASA Pilot Licence, graduates must also meet CASA’s stipulated requirements including exams and flight tests conducted by CASA appointed testing officers. The expected CASA licence, rating and endorsement outcomes of this course, subject to demonstrated competencies, are:

  • Private Pilot Licence (PPL)
  • Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL)
  • Instrument Rating (IR)
  • Multi-Engine Class Rating (MEA)

Exposure to Navigation Aids may include:

  • Non-Directional Beacon (NDB)
  • VHF Omni Directional Radio Range (VOR)
  • Instrument Landing System (ILS) / Localiser (LLZ)
  • Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) or GNSS Arrival (DGA)

The course is delivered face to face on campus at least one day per week, supported by online learning facilities. Our bespoke, customer-first training methodology allows trainees to liaise directly with their instructors to establish a regular flight lesson schedule alongside a day a week commitment to undertake classroom based theory training. It is important to note that whilst our instructors provide flexibility and lessons may be scheduled on weekends, there are constraints caused by aircraft and instructor availability and the requirements of the VET Student Loans system. A suitable rate of progress, participation and professionalism must be maintained at all times.

Initial aeronautical knowledge (theory) is reinforced through attendance-required 2 week blocks of full time classroom training in the leadup to theory exams. For your convenience, these blocks are scheduled well in advance.

Students undertaking this course are expected to wear the uniform provided.

Please see the Tuition Fee VSL Schedules below and visit our VSL Information page for guidance and instructions if you are planning to use VET Student Loans to assist with the payment of your tuition fees. You can also view the relevant policies on our Policies & Procedures page.

VSL payment schedules for each intake are published prior to commencement and can be viewed below.

Domestic Student Tuition Fees – Self Funded

If you do not wish to, or are not eligible to use VSL to pay your tuition fees, you are welcome to pay the Full Tuition Fee for this qualification directly (self-funding) on an instalment schedule. If you are eligible for VET Student Loans, you can also mix the use of VSL and self funded payments.

Additional (Non-Tuition) / Other Costs

There are costs associated with this qualification that are not included in the tuition fees (and therefore, in accordance with ASQA regulations, are not eligible for VET Student Loans cover). It is important to be financially prepared for these costs to reduce the likelihood of disruptions to your training.

Material fees cover various training materials required throughout the course. Payment of material fees is mandatory and can only be adjusted with permission from a senior Flight Instructor. Enrolment is not confirmed until the material fee payment due at acceptance has been paid. Material fees for this course are split into an initial main material fee that covers the CPL stages of the course and a second main material fee to cover the later instrument rating stages of the course. Material costs MAY CHANGE and various items may need to be added, replaced and/or updated as you move through the course. We provide as much guidance as practicable in relation to non-tuition fees but ultimately it is the trainees responsibility to ensure that all stipulated materials are acquired and made available for training in a timely manner.

  • Material Fee ($3,000 approx): The invoice for the material fee is usually issued with the Letter of Offer. A deposit of 50% ($1500) is payable upon acceptance of the offer. This fee includes items such as:
    • Pilot Briefcase and stationery
    • Branded pilot uniform shirts
    • Textbooks, flight documents and charts
    • Tools and equipment required for flight planning and navigation
    • Third party pilot aptitude placement assessment
  • Pilot Headset: As soon as practicable, pilot trainees will need to purchase, from their preferred supplier, a pilot headset of their choice, preferably in the range of $600 (good quality) to $1,650 (premium quality). Our instructors will assist you to determine the most suitable headset to meet your needs and budget.
  • Aviation Medical Examinations: Students commencing this qualification are required to undertake medical examinations specified and regulated by the Australian Civil Aviation Authority (CASA). Medical examinations are arranged by the student at the student’s expense. Students are required to FINALISE and hold their Class 1 medical documentation from CASA by commencement day. Students who have not received their medical will be asked to move to the next intake. Further information will be provided in the formal Letter of Offer. We also recommend that you consult CASA’s website here: www.casa.gov.au/licences-and-certificates/aviation-medicals/medical-certificates/classes-medical-certificate. CASA Designated Aviation Medical Examiners can be located here: www.casa.gov.au/content-search/medical-and-eye-examiners. Medical examination and associated fees are not included in the tuition fees (and are therefore not covered by VET Student Loans).
  • Aviation Security ID Card (ASIC): All students will be required to successfully apply for an ASIC costing approximately $230. This is done through a third party and assistance will be provided during the onboarding stage prior to commencement.
  • Remedial Flights: Flight lessons that need to be repeated as a result of a competency not being achieved are called Remedial Flights. Trainees should expect that from time to time, remedial flights may be necessary, or may wish to voluntarily repeat a flight. Fees associated with remedial flights will need to be paid at the time of booking and can not be covered by VET Student Loans. The cost of remedial flights depend on the nature and length of the repeated lesson and can range from $480 to over $2,000 each. It is therefore essential that trainees have some savings or credit set aside for remedial flights to avoid the possibility of training being suspended.
  • Exams: Additional or repeated exams are not included in the tuition fees (and are therefore not covered by VET Student Loans).
  • Flight Training Cancellation Fee: Cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled session leave either an aircraft, an instructor, or both subsequently idle. This results in a delay to your own training and disadvantages our other clients who may have usefully utilised that instructor’s/aircraft’s availability. Should you have to cancel a Briefing, Flight or Simulator session please do so with no less than 24 hours notice prior to the session, otherwise a Cancellation Fee may be charged. The cancellation fee is currently $132.
  • Options / Upgrades: Pilot trainees who request additional optional flights and/or aircraft upgrades will incur additional fees that are not included in the tuition fees (and are therefore not covered by VET Student Loans).
