Corporate Vision


Tisdall Aviation Group prides itself above all, on its people – choosing the best and most experienced leaders from Australia’s aviation industry.

For more than a decade, the Tisdall Aviation Group has been servicing the Australian aviation industry as a safety-first, compliance-oriented operator and holder of multiple Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) approvals.

Within our group you can expect to find people enthusiastically embracing the future of global aviation – guided by safety and driven by passion.

Headquartered at Brisbane’s Archerfield Airport, the group’s dynamic national folio of capabilities includes pilot training for both domestic and international students, engineer training and licencing, a nation-wide network of examination centres, aircraft maintenance operations, charter operations and FBO services.

With an underpinning philosophy of transparency and a clear focus on customer service, Tisdall Aviation Group is continuing to evolve as a significant, credible force in Australia’s aviation industry.

Building A Centre of Excellence

Part of our group philosophy is delivering comprehensive aviation services, which means training doesn’t just end at flying – but it extends to management as well.

Acknowledgment of Place

We wish to acknowledge the long history of traditional caretakers of the land on which our headquarters operate.

The Jagera people oversaw the use of lands from the bayside areas of Cleveland through to the western Brisbane Valley.

The Jagera people enjoyed a high degree of mobility, as testified by the fact that many of the paths that connected culturally significant sites became the foundations of road infrastructure for later European settlement.

These pathways also connected the Jagera with neighbouring peoples, like the Wakka to the west. This facilitated trade, cultural exchange and diplomatic engagements like the triennial Bunya feast which reinforced familial connections across traditional borders.

Today, as we enjoy expanded aerial mobility across these lands, we express our thanks for those who have worked to preserve this land as a meeting place for the exchange of goods, services and ideas.

Thought Leadership in Safety

Safety is of paramount importance to Tisdall Aviation Group. We take pride in our safety culture – a way of working that reflects respect for ourselves, our colleagues, clients and indeed a healthy reverence for the aerospace in which we work.

The Australian Standards guide defines safety as “a state in which the risk of harm (to persons) or damage is limited to an acceptable level”. Our desire is to remove as many of the risks as possible through sound safety management practices and proactive thought leadership by our team at all levels of the organisation. Our values include a duty of care to each person who travels with us, and our team maintains competency training to look after each client like they were our own family.

We also seek regular feedback from our students and clients in the interests of awareness and enhanced reach. We invite confidential notification of hazards and incidents via email, or in person to the Chief Executive Officer at our Archerfield headquarters. We’d rather you report it promptly than risk the alternative.
