Aboriginal Air Services is an umbrella management company for four separate airlines owned by the Aboriginal people of Central Australia. The companies are Ngaanyatjarra Air (WA based people), Ngurrajuta Air (NT based people), Janami Air (NT based people form the Walpri tribe) and PY Air (SA based people). In 2006 the airline collapsed, but it seems to be going again using a PC-12. This engineless, 1982 Bandit carries PY Air titles and was first registered in Australia on 27 September 2005.
