Eight (8) students from PNG Defence Force (PNGDF) commenced their two year course with us in March and are all progressing well with their studies. Students are completing Certificate IV Aeroskills and consistently achieve top marks and are dedicated to their careers in the aircraft maintenance industry. The students are enjoying Tamworth and region and are also experiencing the hospitality of some of our staff. PNGDF Air Wing Nancy Wii is really happy with the environment and said on their arrival ““The learning environment is ideal for our men. The accommodation is really good and the staff have been friendly.”
Student leader Kapi Rawali (pictured bottom left) has been in the PNG Defence Force for 20 years in the infantry and has now had a change of trade to avionics. “We don’t have these training facilities back home, and this will enhance my skills and train me on new things.”
Here are a selection of photos taken today while doing some practical components in the Hangar. Want to know more about what we do??? Give us a call or email!!!

Horticulture Students at AviSkills
Pictured here are Tamworth TAFE Certificate III Horticulture students who are completing Landscaping Construction and Sports Turf Management. These students attend one day per week and travel from Gunnedah, Manilla, Glen Innes and Tamworth. Most of these students will be course complete this year and hopefully will obtain employment in their chosen discipline area. As you can see from the photos, their practical task was landscaping and turfing the area at AviSkills which has enhanced our entrance 100%!
