The final step which was achieved this week was the addition of PFS to the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students, or "CRICOS", without which an institution cannot offer such courses.
PFS Sydney Manager, Rod Crane, said, "Getting our CRICOS number was the last hurdle we had to cross. Now we are full throttle to promote our courses - particularly in Asia and the Subcontinent but also to North America and Europe - and invite students to enjoy the uniquely friendly atmosphere of Pacific Flight Services, as well as taking advantage of Australia's high training standards, exceptional aviation environment and of course the great Australian lifestyle."
But was it too much work to go through the registration process? Not according to Crane. "It's a lot of work, it's very detailed and you have to be very committed, and the standards for entry are very high. But you wouldn't want to learn from someone who didn't like work, or couldn't handle detail, or wasn't committed, or didn't have the very highest standards, So in fact we really approve of the process. To come through it is proof that we are a high quality training organisation who can be trusted to deliver what our students want - to be high quality professional pilots who can be trusted to sit in the pointy end of large commercial aircraft."
PFS will be pursuing formal promotion avenues in the coming weeks. In the meantime interested students can contact the company through its website at http://pacificflight.com.au
