Cairns airport to host research centre for aviation industry

Central Queensland University has allocated $4.8 million to the creation of an Asia Pacific aviation education and research centre at Cairns in the state’s tropical north.

The institute will be based at Cairns Airport and will offer tertiary training and qualifications for pilots and skilled maintenance engineers.

The university’s vice-chancellor Scott Bowman said the CQU centre would be the first in north Queensland to offer specialist tertiary courses for the aviation industry. The first stage will focus on education and training to address a regional shortage of airline pilots.
