We also offer quality training for commercial pilot fixed wing (CPL) icences and pboth private and commercial helicopter licences. We recommend Durban as the best venue - best flying schools, best weather, most fun - but also offer training in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria.

Additional learn to fly bonuses

Durban is South Africa's premier holiday city and offers year round sunshine and the bikini beaches, fishing, surfing, sailing, scuba diving and snorkeling that go with our sub-tropical climate.
You can also learn to scuba dive and gain international qualifications while you learn to fly. You can learn surfboard riding, stand-up-paddling and kite boarding while you get your PPL. Or maybe just play golf on your days off - Durban just happening to have one of the top ten courses worldwide. Being a major shipping port there are several sailing schools where you can qualify as a sailboat skipper up to Ocean Master level.

You can visit our fantastic game parks, like the Tembe Elephant Park, the Kruger National Park and the Umfolosi and Hluhluwe Game Reserves, in between the flying lessons.
And there's the magnificent Drakensberg Mountain Range offering climbing, hiking and trout fishing just over two hours away.
