China Southern West Australian Flying College Pty. Ltd. was established in 1993 to train airline cadets for China Southern Airlines. Based at Jandakot Airport, 20 mins drive from Perth, the college also owns and operates the Merredin aerodrome, 250km east of Perth in the heart of the Wheatbelt. Both locations have pilot training and accomodation facilities.
The college specialises in training airline pilots from raw recruits with no flying experience to multi-engine instrument rated jet first officers.
The college operates out of two bases in Merredin and Jandakot, WA. Students are provided with on-site accommodation and meals. This creates the opportunity for the safest initial flying environment, while still being in close proximity to the Perth International Airport thus exposing cadets to flying in a high density environment.
CSWAFC owns a modern fleet of single, twin, and high performance trainers, including two Embraer Phenom jet turbine aircraft. These aircraft cater for students at every level of their flight training career. Multiple flight simulators are also used to train students including a state of the art SSA 58-B 6DOF Sim.
