SAFTA is exclusively recognised as the leading flight training academy across South Africa. We strive to be the one of the largest flight schools in South Africa.
South Africa is cited amongst the top 10 destinations for a flight training academy worldwide.
The main attribute to this is the great “non-weather” winter in the Highveld and the strong history of piloting in the country.
The aviation network is mature and continues to do so with the determination and aid of the South African Civil Aviation Authority.
Heidelberg’s airspace is close to the general flying area and is less congested than various other flight schools in South Africa.
It is also unmanned, enabling students to practice “radio talk (aka RT)”at an acceptable pace before going into manned aerodromes.
Heidelberg is in close proximity to international airports and navigation aid. We also have many fly safaris, rally’s and breakfast fly-ins for students to part take in.
SAFTA takes flight schools in South Africa to a whole new extreme level, offering all the main flight training academy programs throughout.

43 Air School

Posted by kedai service 3 comments

Excellence in Pilot Training since 1988
The original 43 Air School opened in 1942 as part of the Joint Air Training Scheme during World War II. Approximately 100 aircraft, mainly Avro Ansons and Airspeed Oxfords, were used to train navigators, bomb aimers and gunners.

The new 43 Air School was established in 1988 by well-known flying training personality, Jim Kennard-Davis, and his wife Penny. The first pilot training course commenced on 01 February 1989, with 11 self sponsored trainees. The school was awarded its first corporate contract in 1992, and in 1995 it trained its first group of pilots for one of the regional airlines.
The mid nineties were watershed years for the company, and under a new management team including two additional shareholders the evolution to become a fully fledged airline pilot training institution gathered impetus, culminating in the school being awarded contracts by the major airlines in South Africa, BA Comair and SAA. In 2002 it was acquired by National Airways Corporation (NAC), part of the Imperial Group of Companies.
A team of highly qualified professionals with extensive operational experience (airline, military and commercial) provides training of an international standard to some 300 airline, military, corporate and self sponsored students from around the world.
43 Air School is a dedicated flying training organisation, catering for the private, general commercial, airline and military sectors. We have extensive experience in training self and corporate sponsored pilots from different cultural backgrounds and from various countries around the world.
The school offers a full residential service and has an average student population of approximately 300 at its main and Bulembu campuses. The staff complement is about 200.
43 Air School has established a reputation within the SA aviation industry for providing a high standard flying training service. All our courses are approved by the South African Civil Aviation Authority.

Facilities & Equipment at 43 Air School

43 Air School specialises exclusively in flying training, and the organisation is equipped specifically for this purpose.
The infrastructure includes an on-campus administration centre, operations room, crew room, lecture halls,library, simulator centre and instructor briefing offices.
The school owns a fleet of 50 Piper single-engine and multi-engine aircraft as well as Robinson R-22 and R-44 helicopters equipped for basic and advanced training. These are maintained by our own on-campus aircraft maintenance organisation.
Various flight and radio simulators are used to compliment the ground and flying training. The Alsim AL50 (Piper Seneca) simulators are used for basic instrument training whilst the Alsim AL1-2 (Baron 58) and Alsim AL200 MCC (Cessna Citation, BE 200) are used for instrument procedural and more advanced training.
The school recently acquired a state-ot-the-art R22/Bell 206 flight simulator enabling it to offer its rotary wing students instrument procedural training on a rotary wing device.
