flight school in South Africa (1)

If you are planning to join a flight school in South Africa, then you will want to know few pointers which can help you. In South Africa there are many flight schools which offer their services. While most of them are genuine and have skilled trainers, some schools are not even certified, which is why, you will want to ensure that you are making the right decision.

Knowing certain pointers will help you make the right choice.

The reputation of the flight school

The reputation of the flight school in South Africa should be verified. This can be found out by what people are speaking about the flight school. Perhaps it is located in a town or city, which is popular or known because of the flight school based in there. When the locals have good things to say about it, then it is definitely worth a look.

The years of experience and certification of the flight school

The years of experience and certification of the aviation school should be checked. The fees and the course duration also have to be verified. That mainly depends on the kind of course you are planning to make use of. When you want to enroll in the beginner’s course, then the duration is usually for few months or less than 3 months.

The middle course is meant for pilots who like to drive small planes. Usually small plane owners like to learn how to drive them before they make their big purchase. The course duration is less than a year. The professional pilot course lasts for few years and can cost high. Hence the student should be prepared and know his/her purpose for the course and then join likewise.

Though all the details of the aviation school in South Africa are available on their website, you need to do yourself a favor and see things for yourself in the flight school. Visit them and meet the trainers. Riding a plane is no joke and unless the trainers are pilots who have years of experience to back them, you are taking a huge risk by joining in that school.

The license and certifications of a flight school are also important. Unless they have been registered by the proper government authorities and are based in the out skirts of the city or town, you know that you are dealing with a poorly organized flight school and are better off not joining there.
