STAA's Australian campus is located in Ballarat -- Victoria's third largest city and just about an hour by car west of Melbourne.
Ballarat is one of two ab-initio flight training bases in our pilot training network and offers a conducive flying environment with its close proximity to many satellite airfields around the municipal airport.
The campus operates a modern fleet of aircraft equipped with Electronic Flight Instrument System to allow cadets to train in a cockpit environment that is similar to that found in commercial airliners. Its flight operations centre features an apron for up to 40 aircraft, a purpose-built tower for safe flight operations and briefing/debriefing rooms for effective learning. There is also a modern academic building with computer-based training rooms for the conduct of theory lessons.
Training aside, cadets enjoy a vibrant campus lifestyle with regular organised events and excursions, fully furnished accommodation and the convenience of school transport and airport meet & greet services.
