Moorabbin Flying Services (MFS) was established in 1993 and our goal has been to provide excellence in flight training and specialist instruction to every student pilot, from either a domestic or international geographic location. We have been recognised nationally for our excellence in training through receiving many awards and accolades by respected leaders in both the aviation and education fields. We are one of the most respected flight training organisations and are considered by our students, flight instructors, peers and industry as one of the finest flying schools in Australia.
MFS, based in Moorabbin, has a commitment to flight training is second to none, fostered by our highly-experienced flight and aviation theory instructors and approved flight testing officers, who together, have amassed over 120,000 logged flight hours between them. Some of our instructors still work in the airlines today flying the Boeing 737. We even have a retired Boeing 777 Captain ensuring you receive the most up to date training.
The training programs at MFS are specifically developed to meet the needs of the industry. While studying at MFS, you will learn simulated commercial and instrument flight study, which allows you to get as close as possible to the challenges you may face in the aviation industry. We are one of the few flight training organizations that offers Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) courses and Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory courses with one of the most respected teachers in Australia today. This is why we have been selected by three airlines to train their cadets.
Studying at MFS, you can attend theoretical classes and practical flight training during weekdays. Students take the opportunity to fly on the weekends or evenings too.
Understanding the life of an international student, MFS offers students to pay their fees in arrears (this does not include the enrolment fee, living expenses, student visa or CASA costs).
