Basair Aviation College offers training at the following three campuses; Bankstown Airport, Cessnock Airport and Archerfield Airport.

Bankstown (Sydney)

Bankstown Airport provides the perfect location for professional pilot training. One of the busiest airports in the Southern Hemisphere, Bankstown provides an exciting and stimulating location for all forms of training. Despite the bustling environment, Bankstown enjoys few delays (unlike Sydney airport), top quality facilities and a convenient location close to the City of Sydney. The use of three parallel runways ensures any traffic load is handled with ease. Proximity to the "training area" where initial training is conducted is important, with this area commencing just 5km from the runway complex. No time is wasted travelling to a distant training area, and the close proximity of Hoxton Park and Camden Airports provides added scope for airport usage.

Hunter Valley (Cessnock)

Hunter Valley Airport, north of Sydney, is home to one of the largest pilot training areas in Australia, making it idyllic for professional pilot training. Students train in modern facilities in a relaxing, fun environment, offering all the comforts of a large city, without the distractions. This makes Cessnock the ideal place for students to concentrate on study and accelerate their learning with the knowledge that they are only 90 minutes drive from Sydney. Cessnock is situated in the Hunter Valley, Australia's oldest and one of it's most well-known wine regions. There is no shortage of choice with over 60 restaurants, 120 wineries, 160 accommodation venues and a vast range of activities and facilities for students to enjoy in this bustling region. Australia's fifth largest city, Newcastle, is just 40 minutes away - offering an abundance of pristine beaches and facilities that students love.

Archerfield (QLD)

Archerfield Airport is a fantastic location for pilot training as it is Brisbane’s secondary airport and Queensland's major centre for general aviation activities. With only about a 15 minute drive to Brisbane CBD it is of close proximity to the state’s major shopping malls, theatre attractions and major events! Queensland is famous for its warm weather and clear skies, perfect for flying. The use of four parallel runways ensure any traffic load is handled with ease. Basair Aviation College has a brand new modern building which offers the best comfort in student accommodation. It is located right in the heart of Archerfield Airport with a lookout deck which offers a 360 degree view of Archerfield Airport.
