QANTAS will build a pilot academy at Wellcamp Airport, at Toowoomba – which has to be good news for the neighbouring (20 mins away) University of Southern Queensland. USQ already participates in the QF Future Pilot Programme, which hires selected USQ aviation graduates to become Qantas Link first officers. The university also has a flight simulator based on a Boeing 737. Problem is that the USQ aviation programme is 120kms from Wellcamp, at the Springfield campus. “We are working on a project that will offer aviation programs at Toowoomba, as well as Springfield,” USQ says.
