Become a Commercial Pilot with the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia

The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia (RACWA) is an organisation with a dedicated team of qualified Flight Instructors who provide the professional services required for all aspects of aviation education from student to international airline pilot. RACWA has been operational for over 78 years and is one of Australia’s most experienced and highly respected training schools. RACWA trained graduates may be found in all areas of aviation, including Qantas Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Skywest, Skippers Aviation and the Royal Australian Air Force. Over its long history, RACWA has built a reputation for excellence because of its professional approach to flying; a reputation that is maintained in all its activities. RACWA is committed to ensuring graduates are not only professional pilots, but are employable pilots. RACWA’s airline academy-style training ensures you receive the highest quality training available on the market today. RACWA does not compromise on safety with training, and produces students to above Civil Aviation Safety Authority requirements. It is our aim to produce the safest pilots available to the International Aviation Industry. This policy will not change.




The key objective of the RACWA Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) Course is to provide the most professional flying training available to the International Aviation Industry. Our aim at all stages of flying training is to produce a pilot who is safe, effective, professional and suitable for employment in any domestic or International Airline.

Approved courses
All RACWA courses are approved by the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training, and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. RACWA was the first training organisation in Western Australia to have Civil Aviation Safety Authority approval of its competency-based training syllabi.

The benefits & advantages of flying with RACWA


Flight Instructing Team Over 50 career-orientated, highly skilled professional pilots are employed to cater for all your training requirements. All Flight Instructors are tested regularly and all senior Instructors are approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to conduct flight-testing for the issue of the various Australian pilot licences and ratings. Engineering To keep our aircraft in the best possible condition RACWA operates its own Engineering division. Our highly qualified Engineers take pride in ensuring our fleet is maintained to the highest possible standards. A number of our engineering personnel are also pilots who understand the importance of a highly maintained, smart looking, cost efficient fleet. Integrated flight training program RACWA has worked hard to design a flight training program that allows students to integrate theory studies with the practical flying phases. RACWA is able to provide the entire training syllabus, from General Flying Progress Test through to a “frozen” Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) and Multi-engine Command Instrument Rating. All sequences of training are conducted at the RACWA Operations Centre at Jandakot Airport. This means you won’t need to change flying schools to complete your advanced training.

The aircraft fleet Over 40 aircraft guarantee continuity of training. RACWA is proud to be able to provide the diversity of aircraft to enable all flying needs. Our fleet includes the following: • 15 Cessna 152 Aerobats - for all basic training and aerobatic ratings. • 11 Cessna 172 Skyhawks and Superhawks – for navigation and night training. • 7 Mooney 20J- for Commercial and basic instrument training. • Seminole and Partenavia - for Instrument Ratings (CIR) and Multi Engine training. • Frasca 142 Simulator - for basic instrument training and approach training. All our aircraft are fitted with internal intercom systems, which make for a quiet, relaxed learning environment during airborne exercises. Our courses utilise aircraft that best suit the needs of each phase of training. With such a diverse fleet, RACWA offers the very best training in the most appropriate aircraft.


The Facilities

The Training Facilities Our multi-million dollar training facilities are structured in such a way as to ensure training is conducted in pleasant, uncluttered surroundings. RACWA provides modern technology and hardware necessary for the efficient transfer of knowledge from the Instructor/ lecturer to the student. All briefing rooms are so designed to enable study without interruption. They are fitted with computers, whiteboards, aircraft models and are air conditioned to ensure studies are in a most congenial atmosphere. All lecture theatres are fitted with state of the art data projectors (for computer presentations and educational videos), audiovisual equipment, individual aircraft instruments and components.

Medical Fitness You are advised to have a Class One Pilot Medical Examination conducted by an approved doctor prior to commencement of training. The requirements for a pilot medical are not as stringent as entry to the airforce (you may wear glasses for example). The examination includes a visit to an eye specialist (ophthalmologist), lung capacity check, hearing test (audiogram), simple blood test and a general examination. Please ask our Operation Team for a Student Induction Kit. Personal Development In addition to providing the necessary flight and aviation theory instruction, RACWA will encourage you in the development of your personal attributes of self discipline and responsibility, both of which are essential for success as a professional aviator. Uniform As you are aiming towards a professional career in aviation, it is most important that your training and personal image is correct from the first lesson. A uniform consisting of navy blue pants, white epaulette shirt, RACWA epaulettes, black shoes and belt must be worn during your training.
