It’s time to turn your passion for aviation into a lifestyle and lifelong career. Being employed within the aviation industry is more than just becoming a pilot. For aviation to thrive in the future we need to cover all aspects of what make the industry tick. Flight training is a major growth market in the Australian general aviation sector, with most major airport based flight schools offering courses aimed at progressing students through to commercial standard. However, other aviation related industry is often overlooked in favour of flying. Aviatex is aimed at showcasing all elements of the aviation industry and will feature all fields including flight training, engineering, airport management, air traffic control, light aircraft to airlines, civil and military engineers, flight attendants, compliance and more.
Global aviation industry forecasts indicate the Asia pacific region will generate the largest proportion of demand for new pilots and technicians over the period of 2017 - 2036. These forecasts predict that 253,000 new pilots and 256,000 new technicians will be required to meet demand in the Asia Pacific.
