Is it for me?

If you are sure you want to take up the sport as a hobby we recommend you start with our 4 day Elementary Pilot Course, an intensive course that gives you many solo flights and hours of ground handling thereby polishing the basic skills you require to become a safe competent pilot. This course can be completed over two weekends.

Am I eligible to do it?

Anyone above 16 years of age can register for this course provided you don't have a previous history of heart disease, major back ailments or blackouts.

Reasonable physical fitness is an asset although a sportive attitude would hold you in good stead too.

No previous flight experience required.

What do I learn from it?

Practical training covers a large part of this course. After hours of close supervision of ground training, you proceed to do a number of low level flights that helps build your confidence and judgment. Thereafter you progress to a number of higher flights, radio supervised by your instructor. The aim here is to hone the basic skills of launching, turning and landing and give you a strong foundation.
