History

TAE has a long and proud history in aviation. Our heritage in aircraft operation dates back to the 1960s when Rossair and Masling Airlines first started flying. Today, their high-quality maintenance arms are part of TAE.

TAE commenced operation in the year 2000 when it was known as Tasman Aviation Enterprises, having won a major F-111 aircraft maintenance contract for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). Since then, we have grown from 6 to 200 employees across a wide range of services and activities and today we are known as TAE – a company that keeps you flying.

Our fast but well-managed growth is the result of both organic expansion and targeted acquisition. We are now the largest engine MRO and engineering company in Australia.

In March 2015, TAE became 100% Australian owned after a Management Buyout from Air New Zealand.
