Try looking on the DEEWR site under List of Approved Providers - and check those in Queensland. Check this link

The list only covers TAFEs etc. but does not include universities which also obviously provide FEE-HELP. As far as I know Griffith Uni is the only uni with an aviation course in Queensland. You'll need to study with them to get FEE-HELP towards your flying component. The flying has to be conducted with the uni's flight training provider.

GU have dropped their OP requirement in the last year or so as they cash in on large course numbers. Bit or a shame as a number of the students on their course will never have what it takes to be a pilot. That's not a shot at uni pilots in general - I'm not starting that argument - just an observation about some of the 100+ 'pilots' per year now on the course.

Thanks All,

Ando1bar, thanks, yeah it is a shame. I was looking on the net and saw something about FEE-HELP could be available for pilots already with a commercial licence. To sort of "stem" the flow of applications flooding the system. Good thing I think. Just finding things a little tight at the mo, and would like to increase my options by gaining a MECIR. I already have done all my training as an instructor but I never took the test. (Problems at the time!) I have all my notes etc and i'm still well versed, just finding it difficult to drum up the large amounts of cash needed to "get up to speed" as quoted by my local schools. So dilema time really, want to get back into flying again (career) but no cash. Anyone know of a company in Cairns who needs a old timer like myself? Ha! Cheers. 489TT
Sob story over!
Cheers all.
