OUR FLEET

And State Of The Art Simulator

Our proven recipe is safety, simplicity, economy, durability and reliability.

Our excellent safety record reflect why the most mass-produced aircraft after all these years remains the most popular. The Cessna 172 aircraft is not only forgiving and trouble-free, it also offers excellent learning platforms. That is why our fleet of aircraft consists mainly of Cessna 172’s.

Students also have access to an array of other air craft with retractable gear, variable pitch propellers and fuel injection systems for advance training.

Students can make use of the Baron 55 six-seat, twin-engine trainers. The strong high performance engines offer an added safety margin during advanced exercises, e.g. for Instrument, Commercial, and Airline Pilot Ratings.
