MFS is moving to Moodle which is an online training platform used by tertiary educators such as Monash University and Australian National University. Moodle allows for our students to interact with their instructors and peers, and complete set work from the instructors. Having our own MFS Moodle website allows us to put portions of our courses online for the students to view the content, do quizzes, watch videos and interact with each other on a forum if they have questions which they want to ask one another. This does not take away from any of the classroom teaching, but is a tool in addition to this. It gives students access to documents and support even while studying at home.
MFS has been shortlisted for the Industry Innovation Awards. These awards recognise and reward local companies and individuals that are at the forefront of aerospace innovation. There are four categories for which we have been shortlisted in the “Civil Industry SME Innovation Grant” category.

Our CFI, Gary, has been a flight instructor since the 1960s. Gary is still as dedicated to flight training as ever. Throughout his career he has been part of many students’ aviation journey. His work in the development of the PMI (principle methods of instruction) component of the Flight instructor training syllabus in the 1990s is still used today. Students, pilots, flight instructors, CASA and other stakeholders have the utmost respect for Gary’s wealth of knowledge and insights in pilot training.
Over 150 graduates and guests attended the inaugural MFS graduation late last year. This was a truly momentous occasion which marked the success of our courses.
