Media Release - New Life for Former RQAC Premises

(05/06/17)
 

Basair Aviation College will occupy the former Royal Queensland Aero Club (RQAC) premises at Archerfield Airport following an exhaustive Expression of Interest process conducted by Jones Lang LaSalle for Archerfield Airport Corporation (AAC).

Basair is Australia’s largest flying school and provides flight training for Griffith University’s Graduate Diploma, Boeing’s Pilot Development Program and Diploma courses where students may be eligible for VET Student Loans.

Basair has leased the Aviation Student Accommodation and Training Complex at Archerfield Airport since 2014. With the complex fully occupied for the first time and the College operating at maximum capacity, the College needs more space to expand.

Basair will also launch Brisbane Aviators, based on their very successful Sydney Aviators operation, to service South East Queensland pilots who want to learn to fly for fun. The RQAC premises have been vacant since RQAC went into voluntary administration in March 2016. AAC plans for RQAC club members to maintain a presence at Archerfield Airport.
