Study Aviation at UniSA

The University of South Australia’s Bachelor of Aviation program prepares graduates for careers in aviation and students have the choice of either a pilot or aviation management specialisation.

The Bachelor of Aviation (Management) provides the knowledge, skills for a successful career in aviation management, airline administration, airport or flight operations. The Bachelor of Aviation (Pilot) is structured specifically to allow those wishing to become commercial pilots to undertake flight training in addition to their undergraduate degree. This is undertaken from the first year of the bachelor degree through private flying lessons for international students. 

Within both specialisations, we emphasise hands-on, practical knowledge, with our students undertaking real-world assignments such as visits to various aviation and meteorological facilities.  Both specialisations also provide an in depth knowledge of a variety of key disciplines, such as aerodynamics, aircraft power plants and systems, meteorology, navigation, flight planning, computer controlled flight management systems, flight operation technology and crew resource management.
