Since its inception in 2006, the Australasian Aviation Group – Cairns (AAG-C) has served as a one-stop shop for aircraft owners, operators, pilots, maintainers and others seeking aviation products and services in one of the world’s most desirable locations. The AAG-C is a geographic cluster of aviation and support businesses including world-class aviation and avionic maintenance facilities, a diversity of fixed and rotary wing operators, a state-of-the-art training centre, and specialist technical, legal and administrative support services.
The Cairns area offers a unique and ideal environment for the domestic and international aviation industry to do business. As an internationally-renowned tourist destination, more than 2½ million visitors each year enjoy the countless attractions of the Tropical North Queensland region. Icons include the Great Barrier Reef, ancient tropical rainforests, idyllic islands, immaculate and secluded beaches, spectacular diving and game fishing, and exclusive luxury retreats, all complemented by the cosmopolitan city of Cairns with its excellent shopping and famous restaurants.
The importance of the region’s aviation industry to Australia’s economy cannot be understated. Not only has the industry underpinned the development of Cairns as Australia’s second most-popular international tourist destination, aviation also provides the crucial transport links required within regional Australia as well as providing support links to Australia’s extensive mining industry.
Significant investment and expansion by international, national and regional companies in the Cairns region show ongoing confidence in the growth potential of the aviation industry sector.
Whether you are coming here to access our many aviation services, or to set up a new business, or just flying through on holiday, the AAG-C looks forward to welcoming you to Tropical North Queensland — aviation excellence in a world-class destination.

Chairman, Australasian Aviation Group – Cairns
