About Us

Welcome to The Museum of Australian Commercial Aviation.
My name is Zarik I am the curator & custodian of the collection.

Having a passion for aviation and collecting I saw that no one else in Australia was collecting and preserving items from all past Australian commercial airlines making the entire collection freely available online. So in 2005 I stared this collection.

My aim is to preserve a representative sample of memorabilia and collectible objects including day to day operational objects from Australia’s past and present commercial airlines.

This includes a brief history of each airlines operations, fleet, key people and key dates within the operations history.

These aims are achieved by the preservation and show casing of the entire collection online as part of Australia’s cultural heritage whist operating with a not for profit stance.

What you see on this web site is actually in the collection this is not a virtual collection. 

In 2017 my youngest son Isaac joined the team as a Technician and Conservator. 

So the Museum has become truly a family operation.
