Our flight schools offer flying lessons in great year-round weather conditions - you can complete your PPL or CPL a lot faster than at home and do so in a sun-filled and fun-filled environment.
We arrange flying lessons for your private pilot license at the best pilot schools in Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg and other parts of South Africa.
We take care of all the flying school arrangements, as well as accommodation, travel and transport. You do your pilot training for your PPL, and have a great fun-filled, sun-filled time into the bargain.
Achieving your flying licence in South Africa is likely to cost you a lot less (time and money) than doing so in your own country. The exchange rate is currently very much in the favor of international students and of course, so are the “sunny and ideal” flying weather conditions.
With the new South African Civil Aviation regulations, an average duration for a PPL is about 3 to 4 months. This will depend on your choice of location, your own ability to adapt to the concept of flying and prevailing weather conditions. You may split your training into section “time spans” to accommodate your personal business and home commitments.
An On-Line study program is available to assist with the Theoretical side. If followed prior to arrival it will be of great benefit to you, and may shorten the duration of your flight training.
Taking all costs into account - travel to and from South Africa, accommodation, the flight school itself, transport in South Africa - the cost of learning to fly in South Africa is generally lower than it would cost you in your own country. And there are so many bonuses in addition to the low cost ...
