Australian Pilot Training Alliance does not stipulate a formal education requirement. Experience has shown that if a student has completed High School English then they should be able to cope with the Private Pilot Licence courses. The staff at Melbourne Flight Training have many years of experience training overseas students, and you will find them very helpful and understanding.
The entry requirements for participants in the Commercial Pilot Aeroplane Licence (092714D) are listed below:
