The Aeromil group has opened a new flight training centre at Sunshine Coast Airport.

The purpose-built Flight Options Flight Training Centre will provide courses for all private and commercial licences and endorsements up to and including business and corporate aviation training.

The facility incorporates simulator rooms equipped with category B simulators and Garmin G300 glass cockpit technology, full motion Citation Mustang simulators, classrooms and briefing rooms.


Aeromil Pacific managing director Steve Padgett said: “Many people talk to us about buying an aircraft and learning to fly, there are also many mature, successful individuals, with the means and application to learn to fly, but existing flying schools and old aircraft have just not motivated them to try. We aim to change that with our new flight training centre and promote flying once more as a satisfying past time and challenging pursuit, as much as a route to a career in aviation.”
