Qantas wants to establish a new Flight Academy.

I think Launceston and Northern Tasmania should be strongly considered as the site for this important facility.

The Launceston Chamber of Commerce, the Co-ordinator General for the state of Tasmania and others are providing real support to develop a business case to get this to Northern Tasmania.

We are asking you to join our campaign to bring the Qantas Flight Academy to Launceston.

Launceston Airport’s close proximity to the University of Tasmania and its size and its facilities make it an ideal location for a college.

Launceston’s Australian Maritime College is just one example of why Launceston is an ideal location for Qantas to train up to 500 pilots a year here.

Our ability to house one of the southern hemisphere’s pre-eminent maritime training institutions should be a big tick for Qantas in deliberating on its decision.

This region has a positive future but we need to press our case to be successful.
