CHOOSING a career is a huge challenge for school leavers and for those seeking a change to their current career path. Deciding what job interests them, finding out what training is available and selecting the right training institute is a big responsibility.
One career choice that offers excellent job prospects is aviation and many students from Fiji and overseas have chosen to do their pilot training with Advance Aviation Training (A.A.T) (Fiji) Ltd in Nadi, Fiji.
A.A.T is based at Nadi Airport and operates single engine and twin engine aircraft used exclusively for flight training, 7 aircraft in all. A fleet consisting of Cessna 150s, 172s and Partenavia PB68. They also have an Elite PI-158 Flight Simulator for Instrument Training. "Since our school started in 2002 we have trained students from around the Pacific region with students coming from Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea and Mongolia. Our courses include Private Pilot Licences, Commercial Pilot Licences, Airline Transport Pilot Licences as well as twin endorsements, instrument ratings and instructor ratings." Captain Wayne Hinton, Chief Flying Instructor for A.A.T said.
It takes dedication and a lot of hard work to be a pilot. Hayden Lowe is the Senior Flight Instructor at AAT and says that, "Anyone wishing to be a pilot would need to be self-motivated and have good time management skills. They need to be committed to their studies and put the maximum effort into both their theoretical and practical work." he said.
A.A.T has fully air-conditioned classrooms and lectures are conducted by our dedicated professional ground instructors who offer personalised tuition for small class groups. Computer based training is also used for many of the subjects taught.
A.A.T (Fiji) Ltd can help ensure students achieve their goals to be a professional pilot.
