Asian Aviation Centre (Pvt) Limited (AAC) 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 (LWTR).

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 a BSc, through an affiliation to Kingston University of UK, from 1997. A BEng (Hons) Degree in Aerospace, Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, BSc Degree in Computing, a Foundation Degree in Aircraft Engineering 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 offers the Certificate (Level 4) in Aviation Engineering, Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Mechanical: Maintenance) course of Regency Institute of TAFE South Australia, in Sri Lanka.

In 2005, AAC entered into an agreement with Kangan Batman Institute of TAFE (KBIT) in Melbourne, the only organization
which possess CASA CAR3O approval for Aircraft Maintenance Training, to deliver the Certificate (Level IV) in Aviation Engineering; Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Mechanical: Maintenance) course at AAC. This new agreement with KBIT provides the students with an option to transfer to Advanced Diploma of Engineering (Aerospace) program of KBIT.

What started as an organization to train Pilots and a few technicians in aircraft maintenance has now grown to be an establishment which offers undergraduate courses in several disciplines. The Asian Aviation Centre is committed to ensure the continuing growth of its training arms, as a fully fledged teaching establishment dedicated to aviation related training in Sri Lanka.
