Bachelor of Aviation (Flying)




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
The degree of Bachelor of Aviation is offered by the School of Aviation in the Faculty of Science. The aim of this program is to prepare students for a career in the aviation industry, primarily as a pilot but also as a future manager/pilot. The program prepares the students for the role of professional pilot working either as a single pilot in a general aviation organisation, or as a multi-crew team in an airline. In addition, the student undertakes academic courses in aviation management (including safety) so that they may also take on the role of manager or the dual role of pilot/manager. The parallel program, the 3981 Bachelor of Aviation (Management) prepares students more specifically for careers in the managerial sector of the aviation industry.
Both streams consist of core courses selected from the Faculties offering the program, together with a range of options. The Flying stream additionally includes flight training to a minimum level of Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL), Command Instrument rating (Multi-Engine) and Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory subjects. Due to the block training nature of the flight training program, teaching periods might not correspond to standard academic sessions, and students will need to undertake the Professional Pilot Program (flying training) on a full-time basis.
This program aims to prepare students for a career in flying, as a pilot. Upon completion of a Bachelor of Aviation (Flying) in the Faculty of Science at UNSW graduates will:
Be able to apply their knowledge and skills to collect, analyse and evaluate information;
Have a thorough understanding of this discipline as a stand-alone discipline and in its interdisciplinary context;
Be capable of applying their knowledge and training in a practical context (i.e. as a trained pilot);
Be capable of both independent and collaborative work;
Display skills relevant to teamwork and leadership;
Have developed effective oral and written communication skills;
Have a thorough understanding of ethical practice in the scientific context and in the aviation industry;
