All Aviation Australia students are required to wear a uniform that reflects the attire of a Flight Attendant. This uniform consists of a white button-up shirt, black business pants or skirt and black leather shoes.
The uniform is purchased by the student at their own expense from a store of their choice and is worn from day one throughout the duration of the course.

Aviation Australia will provide a scarf or tie to complete the uniform which is reflective of the presentation standard required by airlines in the industry.

Aviation Australia does not have a specific height, reach, medical, maximum age, residency/citizenship or visible tattoo requirements upon enrolment. These requirements are airlines specific.

If English is not your first language, an English proficiency test may be required. A phone interview may be conducted prior to enrolling and undertaking your course.

Domestic and International airlines based in Australia, usually require applicants to hold either an Australian/New Zealand Permanent Residency or Citizenship. Many Aviation Australia students go onto secure employment with a number of international airlines based around the world.
