in South Africa - about Learn To Fly
Learn to Fly is run by Ginny in cooperation with flying schools and guest houses in Durban, Cape Town and Pretoria/Johannesburg. Ginny (and staff) make all the arrangements you need to get your flying license South Africa - lessons, accommodation, transport and all the extras you choose.
No feeling of being a 'stranger in a strange country'. You will be met at the airport, taken to your accommodation and shown the ropes. No risk of your booking into a 'doss-house' on the wrong (far from the flying school) side of town.
We can make arrangments for PPL (private pilots license) and CPL (commercial pilots license). Fixed wing , helicopters and microlights.
Getting your flying license in South Africa is likely to cost you a whole lot less than doing so in your own country. The average duration of a PPL is about 6 weeks.
Which flying schools in which centres?
We deal with flying schools all over South Africa (including Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg) but NOT with all flying schools - only those that we regard as totally reliable and that offer top-class training.
