Jamie Zammit, an Australis Student wins Prestigious Scholarship recently at the 2018 Regional Aviation Association of Australia National Convention on the Gold Coast.

Jamie won the Jeppesen Pilot Scholarship, which is valued at $7,500 and he will put the money towards his studies and to also help offset the costs of his aviation training.

He is nearing the completion of his Diploma with Australis whilst at the same time is in his first year of a Bachelor of Aviation at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ).

“Flying is something I’ve always wanted to do.” said Jamie.

In response to winning this award, Jamie said “It’s quite humbling to know that my hard work and perseverance has paid off and that there are people out there who believe in me and are willing to support me financially.”

Jamie is close to completing his Diploma with Australis and obtaining his Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) having completed almost 200 flight training hours.

Andrew Hetherington, Australis College’s Managing Director, said “Jamie is not only a hard-working student but a brilliant role model. He’s leading by example, showing everyone it’s possible to make your dreams become a reality. We look forward to Jamie graduating from his Diploma and wish him the best of luck as he continues his aviation studies with USQ, he’s definitely a very worthy recipient of this prestigious award.”

Jamie is hoping to be accepted into the Qantas Group Future Pilot Program (QGFPP), which is open to high-achieving USQ students studying a Bachelor of Aviation (Flight Operations).
