About Us

Flight One Academy is privileged to hold the rare distinction of being approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to conduct training toward both the Australian Aircraft Engineer and Commercial Pilot licences.


Welcome to the Tisdall Aviation Group.

Bound by one philosophy: safety first, safety always.

Flight One Academy, part of the Tisdall Aviation Group, delivers high quality, nationally-recognised Certificate IV & Diploma qualifications in Aviation, Aeroskills and Aviation Management.

Tisdall Aviation Group began with a vision to deliver outstanding service to the aviation community, driven by values of customer service, quality, and a dedication to safety. With Flight One Academy, we are embarking on a journey to create Australia’s leading aviation college, an institution which is singularly focused on delivering quality graduates to industry. 

Job-Ready Professionals.

We see our alumni as the custodians of best practice and the industry’s pre-eminent human resource.
