Airlines of Tasmania, is a name which has a long association with the history of aviation in Tasmania, the name has been used by various operators for over 50 years, operating regular public transport services all across the state.
The present day Airlines of Tasmania, started as an "air work" organisation, "Aerotechnology" over 30 years ago, with the operations including Cloud Seeding and Aerial Photography in Tasmania, but expanding through all states of Australia and areas of South East Asia, the Pacific and New Zealand.
During this time, the company acquired Par Avion, a tourism focussed charter company and flight training school operating out of Cambridge Airport. When the Federal Government privatised Cambridge Airport in 1992, the company purchased the aerodrome, which it still owns and operates today.
We have recently completed a major upgrade to the airport runways, adding a third runway, and purchased a number of modern training aircraft with a view to increasing the flight training activities provided by the company.
Our students will learn to fly within the rugged terrain and variable meteorological conditions that only Tasmania has to offer, no two days are the same. They learn low level flying skills and how to operate in and out of secluded airfields. We are of the opinion that students who train in these surroundings will be more experienced than those who have completed their training in 'perfect' conditions.
