REX (Regional Express) (ZL/RXA)

The Australian Regional Express, also known as Rex, has its administrative headquarters at Mascot in Sydney. The airline was created when the Australiawide Airlines Consortium added Hazelton and Kendell Airlines to its operations in 2002. The group was renamed Regional Express Holdings in August 2005. As the airline expanded, finding enough qualified pilots in Australia became an issue so Rex established a cadet pilot training programme. This school, the Australian Airline Pilot Academy, is now based at Wagga Wagga Airport in New South Wales.
