AeroSpace Training Centre

In this section:

The AeroSpace Training Centre is comprised of two distinct facilities, which includes a 1,500 square metre hangar facility that houses a variety of aircraft including Polytechnic West's very own Boeing 737.

Our Boeing 737 is maintained in a fully serviceable condition, and used as a non-flying static training facility for students in many of the training courses, from Pilot Studies, to Cabin Crew, to Aircraft Maintenance, and even Safety and Ground Handling.

Other ASTC facilities and training devices available for students include: additional fixed wing and rotorcraft static trainers, a campus Library, Learning Resource Centre with computer and wireless internet resources, computer based training modules, and a flight simulator.
