Course Entry

Melbourne Flight Training does not stipulate a formal education requirement. Experience has shown that if a student has completed High School English then they should be able to cope with the Private Pilot Licence courses. The staff at Melbourne Flight Training have many years experience training overseas students, and you will find them very helpful and understanding.

The entry requirements for participants in the Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence (060668C) are listed below:

  • have proficiency in written and spoken English to at least IELTS 6.0, or TOEFL of at least 550, or TOEIC 700, or be a native English speaker;
  • must be 18 years of age;
  • medical certificate being at least a Class 2 Medical conducted by a CASA Approved Medical Practitioner;
  • have qualifications or experience to the completion of Australian academic ‘Year 11’, however it is at the discretion of the Chief Flying Instructor;
  • be willing to undergo a profile check by the Australian Federal Police.The police check is an ASIC requirement that will either approve or not approve allowance for you to fly into security control airports.
