Aviation for Women

The aviation for Women conference is an initiative dedicated to support a higher representation of women in Aviation/Aerospace. This is an opportunity for prospective female aviators to speak directly with women in the industry. The event will be hosted by MFS on the 3rd of June.

MFS shortlisted

MFS has been shortlisted for the Industry Innovation Awards. These awards recognise and reward local companies and individuals that are at the forefront of aerospace innovation. There are four categories for which we have been shortlisted in the “Civil Industry SME Innovation Grant” category.

MFS a finalist

Staff at MFS were very excited to be one of the finalists in the 2016 Victorian Training awards in the Vet in School Category. General Manager of MFS, Mark Darragh, received the award on behalf of the company.

Graduation dinner

Over 150 graduates and guests attended the inaugural MFS graduation late last year. This was a truly momentous occasion which marked the success of our courses. The evening event was a wonderful celebration for our graduates and we would like to thank our sponsors for helping to make this event possible.

Instructor of the year

Our CFI, Gary, has been a flight instructor since the 1960s. Gary is still as dedicated to flight training as ever. Throughout his career he has been part of many students’ aviation journey. His work in the development of the PMI (principle methods of instruction) component of the Flight instructor training syllabus in the 1990s is still used today. Students, pilots, flight instructors, CASA and other stakeholders have the utmost respect for Gary’s wealth of knowledge and insights in pilot training.

Ansett visit

Our cadets enjoyed the hospitality of staff at the Ansett Aviation Training. Students took park in a tour of the facilities and got to experience one of their excellent flight simulators.
