Moorabbin Airport is used for pilot training,
private flying and some charter flying. The
airport consists of 5 fully operational
runways, control tower, navigation aids and
a large number of aviation related
businesses. Located right in the middle of
Melbournes south eastern suburbs it is easy
to get to and is well serviced by public
ANAC is located at Melbournes main training airport,
Moorabbin Airport, in the South Eastern suburbs, just 30
minutes from the city center.
The college is approved by the Australian Federal
Government to train overseas students (CRICOS
Registration Number:02530B) and the Civil Aviation
Safety Authority to provide a range of pilot training licences
and endorsements. This includes approvals to train for
the Private Pilot Licence, Commercial Pilot Licence,
Constant Speed Unit/Retractable Endorsement, Multi
Engine Endorsement, Night VFR Rating, Instrument Rating,
Aerobatics Endorsement, Formation Endorsement,
Tailwheel Endorsement and Instructor Rating.

If becoming an Airline Pilot is your
dream, then youre fortunate that there
has never been a better time to get
into this career.
With the rapid development of many
economies, especially in the Asian
region and the advent of many new
budget airlines, the equation is simple.
Improving economies means more
people have more disposable income
to spend and budget airlines mean
that flying is as cheap as its ever been.
Put the two together
and youve got a
situation where more
people than ever
before can afford
to fly And they are
doing just that!
This has resulted in a boom in the
aviation industry that can now help
your dream become a reality in a
relatively short period of time, unheard
of a few years ago. Many airlines are
experiencing one problem they buy
the additional aircraft and hire the
ground crews but there just arent
enough pilots around. Thats why they
Current forecasts are that the number
of airliners in the world will double by
2020 and that over the next 15 years
the world will need at least an additional
18,000 newly trained pilots EVERY year.
If youre still not convinced, we suggest
you do the research for yourself. Just
do a web search on pilot shortages
and demand for pilots and youll find
many articles about the problems facing

internationally recognised training
The training we provide is conducted
following the Australian CASA (Civil
Aviation Safety Authority) syllabus which
meets ICAO (International Civil Aviation
Most countries are members of ICAO
and each member country will
recognise the licence of the other.
However if you plan on working in
another member country you will need
to convert your licence to a local licence.
In most cases this is relatively simple
and requires you to:
Pass a local Aviation Medical,
Pass a local Conversion Exam
Pass a local Flight Test.
For details about converting your
Australian licence to your local
licence, either ask us or contact
your local Department of Civil
First thing we need to do is teach
you how to fly an aircraft. This
involves sequences such as Effect
of Controls, Straight and Level
F l i g h t , C l i m b i n g a n d
Descending, Turning, Take off
and Landing etc.
On average you will do 25 hours
dual flying (i.e with an Instructor)
and 5 hours solo flying (i.e on
your own) before sitting for your
flight test. You will also need to
pass your Basic Aeronautical
Knowledge exam. This first stage
is known as GFPT (General
Flying Progress Test). Once you
have passed your GFPT you can
take yourself or passengers flying
but only within a specified area
near the airport.
Step 1 GFPT
Step 2 Private Pilot Licence
Okay so now you can fly the
aeroplane but if you want to take
it on a long distance flight the
next thing you need to learn is
how to navigate the aircraft, so
in stage 2 we do the navigation
training for the full Private Pilot
You will learn how to read a
map, make a flight plan and find
your way from point A to point
B using Visual Flight Rules (Visual
Navigation). This simply means
you look out the window and
identify features on the ground
like lakes, roads, cities, rivers,
railway tracks etc from your map
to identify where you are. The
a v e r a g e s t u d e n t d o e s
approximately 25 hours dual
and 5 hours solo for this stage.
The theory course requires you
to study Navigation, Flight Rules,
Meteorology, Human Factors in
Flight and Aircraft General
Knowledge before sitting for the
PPL theory exam.
Once you have passed your PPL
you can fly anywhere in Australia
as a Private Pilot. A Private Pilot
can fly for recreational purposes
but cannot be paid to fly.
Therefore if you want to make
an income from flying, you now
need to move to Step 3 and
undertake training for your
Commercial Pilot Licence.
Step 3 Commercial Pilot Licence
Multi Engine Endorsement
Before commencing your Instrument Rating
we need to train you how to fly a twin
engine aeroplane, which well then use for
our Instrument Rating training. You will need
approximately 7 hours of flight training to
complete this endorsement.
Your Instrument Rating course
includes approximately 15 hours
of dual simulator training as well
as 21 hours of dual flight time in
You will also need to pass a theory
exam known as IREX.
Before sitting for a CPL flight test you need:
To have a minimum 150 hours total
flight time - some countries (e.g India)
require more hours and we have
therefore created special courses to
meet these needs.
To have a minimum 70 hours solo flight
time (again, some countries require
more e.g India requires 100 hours, so
we have a special course for this)
To have passed all CPL theory exams.
There are 7 separate exams
Navigation, Flight Rules, Aircraft
General Knowledge, Aircraft
Performance, Aerodynamics, Human
Factors in Flight & Meteorology
Demonstrated the required standard of
flying to be recommended for a flight
Therefore in this stage you will need to
study for and pass all your CPL exams,
build up your solo flying experience and
then undertake further dual training to meet
the CPL standard.
Note: All flying through to CPL flight test is
in a Single Engine Aircraft and is under VFR
(Visual Flight Rules).
pilot training and how it all works
You will progress through your training in stages and for each stage there is the practical flight
training followed by a flight test and theoretical training followed by a theory exam or exams.
As we explained above, VFR
requires you to be able to see out
the window and identify features
on the ground so that you know
where you are.
Do you think that this technique
would be suitable for an Airline
Pilot flying an Airbus or Boeing
between Mumbai and Melbourne?
Of course not: Airliners fly at night
(so you cant see the ground), they
usually fly at 35,000-40,000 feet
(so its far too high to see anything),
they fly above clouds, in clouds,
above oceans and at great speeds
(about 850km/hour) all making
the VFR technique unsuitable.
Therefore if you want to become
an Airline Pilot you need to continue
with your training to learn to fly and
navigate by using the aircrafts
instruments and under a different
set of rules known as Instrument
Flight Rules (IFR) thats why you
now need to keep going and do
an Instrument Rating.

Melbourne is a large cosmopolitan
city with people and students from
all over the world, so if youre
looking for particular local food or
something special from home, youre
likely to find it here.
There is always something going on
in Melbourne from, the Formula 1
Grand Prix in March, the Australian
Tennis Open, Fashion Week, the
Melbourne Comedy festival, Spring
Racing Carnival, Australian Football,
International cricket or the Avalon
International Air show: there is
something for everyone.
If you need us to arrange airport
pick up and Homestay
Accommodation (i.e live with a local
person/family that provides a room
and meals) then we can arrange it.
Many of our students use the
Homestay service as a way to settle
in and in most cases they then end
up sharing a house/flat with new
friends made at ANAC.

what do our students have to say about ANAC?
There are no formal academic requirements to
train as a pilot in Australia however you must:
Have a high standard of English.
Note: Some countries are required to undertake
an IELTS English test as part of the Student Visa
application process (an Australian Government
regulation). Ask us if you need to do an IELTS
Have passed or be able to pass a Class One
CASA Aviation Medical Exam. Your aviation
medical can be done after arrival in Australia
however in many countries, CASA has approved
local doctors who can do the test for them. If
there is a CASA approved doctor near you, its
a good idea to do the aviation medical before
you come to Australia. For anyone with good
general health (and yes, you can wear glasses),
the medical should not be difficult to pass.
We have regular course start dates, generally
every 4-6 weeks. For precise dates please refer
to the Course Information section of our
