Pilot Academy Bid chances rise

By Tammy Laval

MACKAY’S chances to become the next pilot training academy for Qantas increases after Tamworth redraws.

Qantas confirmed one of the main contenders in the bid to secure the academy, Tamworth, had bowed out of the race after securing a deal to establish a training academy with Virgin Australia.

This now leaves seven contenders including Mackay, Alice Springs, Bendigo, Busselton, Dubbo, Launceston and Wagga Wagga contending for the Academy’s second site.

It comes shortly after Toowoomba was recently announced as the first location for the Qantas Group Pilot Academy, due to open in 2019.

A great win for Tamworth & Toowoomba and more broadly for regional centres in Australia.

Qantas are expected to announce the second pilot training academy location by the end of 2018.
