43 Air School

Posted by kedai service 22.2.13

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.
