Aircraft Course is awesome.
Aircraft course partnership and passion for aviation is what makes Tristar Aviation such a success. Together, they have extensive technical, flight training and general aviation experience – some of it gained while working at both Qantas and Ansett. They have also worked in Air Traffic Control, and both general and micro light aviation, as well as on a number of government aviation-related committees.
Adrianne has been awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for her tireless services to Australian aviation. She was also awarded the Australian Women Pilots’ Association’s prestigious Nancy Bird Award for Most Noteworthy Contribution to Aviation by a Woman in Australasia. Not only that – many young pilots first learnt about flying as a result of Adrianne’s voluntary role as Executive Commissioner, Victorian Group of the Australian Air League.
You will learn about aerodynamics, aircraft control systems, avionics navigation and communications, and specialise in the design of electronic systems for aircraft and satellite systems using systems engineering methodology. We are a major player in national avionics research and we have strong partnerships with government and industry. You’ll be involved in research projects such as fixed-wing UAV and rotorcraft, aerospace vision systems, aircraft control systems and autopilot design.
Field trips provide you with a first-hand view of aerospace avionics, plus you’ll interact and engage with engineers and researchers at QUT’s Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation.
Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.
