Bendigo Aviation Services (BAS) was established in 1972. Initially a small flying school, in the early 1980's it began operating an airline service under the name of Sovereign Airlines linking the country Victorian townships of Mildura, Swan Hill and Bendigo with Melbourne, this was later discontinued. Purchased by the current owners in July 1990, Bendigo Aviation Services has once again grown from a small flying school conducting the occasional charter to one of the larger and more recognised and respected schools in county Victoria. Bendigo Aviation Services became a Registered Training Organisation and provider for CRICOS in 2011 and is now able to train international students to the same high quality as provided to their local students. The people at BAS continually strive to improve standards and safety in all it's operations and this is what has made it a successful aviation company today with a modern fleet of 5 airplanes and one high-tech simulator.
