Our partnership

USQ and the Qantas Group Pilot Academy recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide USQ aviation students an opportunity to soar high by undertaking their flying training at the Qantas Group Pilot Academy. Qantas appointed Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) as the training provider for the Qantas Group Pilot Academy, Toowoomba site. 

FTA is a world-class training provider for the Australian aviation industry and some of the world’s leading airlines. Since its founding in 1982, FTA has been focused on producing future airline captains, rather than simply training students to obtain a licence.

In partnership with the Qantas Group, FTA offers a full range of services, including student selection, ab initio and advanced training courses, as well as management of accommodation facilities onsite at Toowoomba’s Wellcamp Airport. FTA’s highly trained and committed staff ensure that the training environment and content of the courses not only exceed student expectations but also contribute to the creation of a truly world-class pilot school.
