A unique opportunity to experience what an aviation career has to offer.

The Griffith University Aviation Flight Camp is an exciting two-day non-live-in camp that offers Year 11 and 12 students a unique opportunity 
to experience what an aviation career has to offer.

  • Simulator session in the Griffith Flight Procedures Lab undertaking a virtual flight.
  • Mentor lunch and presentation by industry representatives from Basair, Qantas, Airbus, Virgin and Aerodrome Operations.
  • Tour of the Royal Flying Doctor Service hangar.
  • Behind the scenes tour of Qantas and Virgin Hangars at the Brisbane Airport.
  • Drone Quidditch activity.
  • Brisbane airport Airside tour and presentations from Airside operations

In the interests of prioritising the health and wellbeing of our staff and students during what are exceptional circumstances, we have decided to postpone the Flight Camp until further notice.

This approach is about supporting wider efforts to contain and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Griffith has a role to play in this endeavour and postponing various non-essential events ensures we can instead focus on delivering the University’s core businesses of teaching and learning and research in these uncertain times.

Thank you for your understanding around this postponement.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at griffithaviation@griffith.edu.au if you have any further questions.
