Inspire Change FAME Christmas Event

Inspire Change FAME Christmas Event

Aviation Australia is proud to present the FAME program (Female Aviation Maintenance Engineer). FAME, a first-of-its-kind initiative in the aviation industry, is designed to nurture and support our future female aircraft engineers as they develop their careers in an area traditionally dominated by men. You have the opportunity to be a part of the female engineering community and lead the way in bringing about change. We aim to increase female participation in Australia’s aircraft maintenance engineering workforce by offering students support from industry and key networks throughout their studies. In some areas, the industry average of female tradespeople in Australia is less than 5%.

The FAME program is available to all females at the Aviation Australia Brisbane campus, Darwin campus, and Cairns campus.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are in high demand.

The primary purpose of an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is to ensure that aircraft are safe to fly. An engineer must certify that a plane is airworthy before it can take off.

This career is for you if you like to solve problems practically and enjoy knowing how things function.

These Certificate IV Aeroskills courses are designed to ensure that graduating students will leave apprenticeship-ready.
