Established in 1988, Flight Training Adelaide Pty Ltd is a Registered Training Organisation. FTA offers aviation training solutions for the fixed wing and rotary wing industry. It is located at Parafield Airport, South Australia. The college started operations in 1982 and over the years has had a number of owners including Hawker de Havilland and BAE SYSTEMS. In 2005, the college was purchased by Hong Kong based Young Brothers Aviation (YBA). FTA's training ethos is to develop future Airline and Helicopter Captains rather than simply training cadets to obtain a license. To achieve this, FTA has made, and continues to make, considerable investment to ensure appropriate aircraft/simulator assets are available and the best staff are in place to deliver the training. Whether it's fixed wing or rotary wing, FTA caters for the sponsored cadets and self-funded students. A full range of services are available at FTA including selection, English Language Training, airborne flight grading, ab initio training to CPL, multi-engine CIR, frozen ATPL, multi-crew procedures and flying instructor training.
