Agreement with Tristar Aviation

Federation University Australia will provide training and support to Tristar Aviation following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organisations this week.

"The University is delighted that we will now be collaborating with Tristar to provide education and training services relevant to the aviation industry," Jason Giri, Head of the School of Engineering and Information Technology, said.

"The online learning programs we will provide can be taken in conjunction with overall pilot training.

"Pilots will be able to study for a business, engineering or information technology degree to complement their training.

"This joint venture is sure to be of great benefit to trainees."

By undertaking a FedUni program alongside their training, prospective pilots will be able to increase their chances of finding their ideal aviation career.

Tristar Aviation said it welcomed the MOU with Federation University Australia.

"The carefully considered pathways and flexible delivery options will allow a greater diversity of skilled personnel into the aviation industry," Adrianne Fleming, Operations Manager, said.

A ceremony to sign the Memorandum of Understanding was held at the Mt Helen Campus.
