Aeroplane Pilots fly aeroplanes to transport passengers, mail and freight, or provide agricultural, aerial surveillance or other aviation services.
You need to pass practical and theoretical exams to qualify for a pilot licence before you can work as an Aeroplane Pilot. The Civil Aviation Authority issues pilot licences. Flight training is available through private flying schools. Completing a formal qualification through either Vocational Education and Training (VET) or university may improve your chances of getting a job as an Aeroplane Pilot. You can also train to become an Aeroplane pilot with the Australian Defence Force.
Registration with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority is required.
