In response to industry demands for a quality aircraft engineering training provider, ATAE was founded in July 1998 by the Royal Queensland Aero Club – one of Australia’s oldest and most significant aviation pioneers, with a history spanning more than 100 years. ATAE was a registered training organisation (RTO) approved for Queensland State Government Funding, VET Fee Help (now VET Student Loans) and CASA Part 147 maintenance training delivery.


The Royal Queensland Aero Club closed its doors after 115 years and in 2017, ATAE’s IP was acquired by ICAT Aviation College.


In order to continue ATAE’s legacy of quality and its reputation in the aviation industry, ICAT Aviation College has re-established ATAE’s training programmes at Archerfield and to whatever extent possible, remains willing to support the training endeavours of ATAE’s former students. ICAT’s engineering programmes are currently undergoing part 147 approval process with CASA so we can continue to provide RPL services to aircraft maintenance engineers – at reasonable rates, with friendly professional service.
