The Premier Aeronautical Engineering & Flight Academy in Sri Lanka
AAC formerly known as CDE Aviation. Registered as a private limited liability company in 1985 to operate a flying training academy, at the largest hangar at the Ratmalana Airport just in the perimeter of the City of Colombo.
To compliment our Flying Training arm, Asian Aviation Centre Engineering Academy and a domestic scheduled airline was established. Subsequently, the airline went on to charter operations.
We are proud to say that AAC is the only flying school in SL at present that can offer approved multi engine rating training.
AAC can boast of a highly trained and dedicated staff with a wealth of experience behind them.
Courses are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka (CAASL).
Asian Aviation Centre (Pvt) Ltd., (AAC) formerly CDE Aviation, was registered as a private limited liability company in 1985 and its main business was operating a flying training school. In 1990, it commenced a course of studies to train students to sit for the examination conducted by the Director General of Civil Aviation Sri Lanka for the issue of licences in aircraft maintenance without type rating.

Due to the increased demand for higher studies, AAC considered the possibility of offering undergraduate courses in Aeronautical Engineering and embarked on a course development program to offer two other courses, a HND and BSc, through an affiliation to Kingston University London from 1997. A BEng (Hons) degree in Aerospace, Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, BSc degree in computing, a Foundation Degree in Aircraft Engineering and Aviation Studies were subsequently added to the Portfolio.
In 1998, AAC signed an agreement with the department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology of the Government of South Australia, under which, from 1999, AAC offered the Certificate (Level 4) in Aviation Engineering, Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Mechanical Maintenance) course of Regency Institute of TAFE South Australia, in Sri Lanka.
