All flying schools are issued an Air Operators Certificate by the Australian Civil Aviation Authority (CASA) and must adhere to strict training and delivery standards to maintain their license. CASA conducts regular audits of all Air Operator Certificate holders and their instructional staff.
Each school must follow a syllabus of training that meets CASA requirements which in turn meet ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) standards. This means the Australian license is recognised worldwide and can be easily converted in most countries.
The flying schools are approved to conduct both the theory and practical flight training however when it comes to flight testing, theory exams and license issue, this is all done by CASA. Therefore whilst its important to choose the right flight school, its also important to remember that you are training for a CASA licence not just a licence issued by your school.
