About Us

Welcome to
Tristar Aviation
Part 142 Flight School

Geoff and Adrianne Fleming founded Tristar Aviation with one aircraft quite a long time ago. Their goal was to deliver aviation services that exceeded clients' expectations.

Today, with more aircraft and a team of talented aviators working with Tristar Aviation, there are thousands of clients who will say Adrianne and Geoff's goal is still being met.

Our Founders

Geoff and Adrianne Fleming's partnership and passion for aviation is what makes Tristar Aviation such a success. Together, they have extensive technical, flight training and general aviation experience - some of it gained while working at both Qantas and Ansett. They have also worked in Air Traffic Control, and both general and micro light aviation, as well as on a number of government aviation-related committees.

Adrianne has been awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for her tireless services to Australian aviation. She was also awarded the Australian Women Pilots’ Association's prestigious Nancy Bird Award for Most Noteworthy Contribution to Aviation by a Woman in Australasia. Not only that - many young pilots first learnt about flying as a result of Adrianne's voluntary role as Executive Commissioner, Victorian Group of the Australian Air League.

So if you want to work with professionals who are committed to ensuring you can achieve your dream of flying, or you need a charter flight or joy flight, contact us.
