Event description

FDC Site Tour: CAE Qantas Sydney Flight Training Centre

If you are currently studying and or looking to start a career in construction, this event will be perfect for you! Join FDC's Women in Construction Movement for their next site tour to hear about entryways and pathways in construction while extending your network and meeting the project team to learn about the intricate details of design and construction of the flight training centre. 

FDC partnered with CAE and LOGOS for the construction of the new purpose-built Sydney Flight Training Facility in St Peters near Sydney Airport while discussing the women in construction movement, pathways into construction and providing networking opportunities.

The building has been designed with over three levels to provide training for up to 4,500 new and current Qantas and Jetstar pilots and cabin crews. It will house the latest technology in aviation including full flight simulators, emergency training equipment including slides, rafts and door trainers, several classrooms and office space to meet Qantas requirements. The project entails the demolition of existing structures, remediation of contaminated fill soils and the construction of a 3-storey concrete and steel structure with associated services external pavement and landscaping works. The project will also require the construction of two new substations, a new sewer connection and the diversion of an existing stormwater line. The site is situated on Alexandria Canal and will involve new landscaping to revitalise this State Heritage construction. The project is in its final stages and due for completion mid 2024.

Lastly, we will discuss our authentic commitment to gender diversity, current opportunities and the various construction career pathways including:

  • Paid cadetships - get paid and gain valuable experience while studying.
  • Paid graduate positions - including available roles and opportunities.
  • Job shadowing - observe a day in the life of your desired profession.
  • Work experience - road test your future career, learn new skills on the job while gaining first-hand, real-world experience.
  • Current opportunities.

If the construction industry and the process of building spaces that inspire their end-users are an exciting prospect for you, we invite you to join university and high-school students, parents, teachers, career advisors, industry professionals, career changers and friends to learn more. Light refreshments will be served during networking at the end.
