Welcome to TVSA Pilot Training

At TVSA Pilot Training, we are a dedicated registered training organisation who train pilots for a challenging and satisfying career in commercial aviation.

We offer Nationally Accredited Diploma’s for those who desire a career as a pilot as well as non-accredited training courses for those who are looking for a thrilling recreational experience.

We know how strong the ambition to fly can be and we’ve been putting people like you in the cockpit of aeroplanes since 1982.  Longwarry was the first base of TVSA Pilot Training. Today we hold our campus at the Bacchus Marsh Aerodrome, flying seven days a week.
