About us

Launched following a rebrand of Bendigo Aviation Services in 2013, Soar Aviation is a global pilot training and resourcing company, specialising in end-to-end service and producing extraordinary pilots.

In 2016 Soar Aviation partnered with leading Australian provider of vocational courses, Box Hill Institute, to help address the Global Pilot Shortage. This has resulted in the partnership model delivering pilot training courses of the highest quality while providing a hands-on approach to skill-building.

A pioneer in the region,  Soar Aviation provide a wide range of aviation services from trainee pilot selection, training and airline placement, to the more advanced selection,  training and provisioning requirements for experienced pilots, instructors and examiners.

Soar Aviation works with students from a wide range of backgrounds, all with a commitment to excellence, providing full-time and part-time commercial pilot career programs for both individual and airline customers.

Over the past six years,  Soar has built up to a team of over fifty instructors, over thirty support staff, and a cutting-edge, modern fleet of more than forty-three planes.

Soar’s commitment to innovation, efficiency and excellence has led to rapid expansion as Australia’s fastest growing flight school, with training centres at Moorabbin Airport, Melbourne and Bankstown Airport, Sydney & Bendigo Airport.
