About Us


The Australian International Aviation College (AIAC) is built upon a privately owned and operated Flight School that has been operating since 1990, located at Port Macquarie on the North Coast of New South Wales.

Formally known as Johnston Aviation Services domestically for flight training and Arena International Aviation for the International training we have developed a respected technique and personalised environment over two decades to ensure our high standards of training and safety are maintained across both flight training colleges.

Predominantly using factory new Diamond aircraft for flight training ensures your training is not only safe but carried out using the most advanced systems available in small training aircraft today.


Experienced Staff

All of our flight instructors have been trained by our company from the onset of their own flight instructor rating training; this facilitates a high level of standardisation in our training methods and enchances the learning experience which ensures consistency and uniformity.
