UK Flyer Magazine visits South Africa
Learn To Fly hosted a team from the UK Flyer Magazine. They were in South Africa to look at our Helicopter Training packages and to visit our 'idyllic' training situation in Durban.
They started in Pretoria and spent two days 'on
location' overflying game ranches, mountains and
lakes and along the border of the Kruger National
Park. Close up views of elephants, hippos and many
They also participated in the darting and capture of
a black and a white rhino prior to relocation.
UK Flyer Magazine in Durban
Then on to Durban to view our superb guest house
(not to be confused with the old fashioned B&B!).
A wonderful view over a green golf course and
blue Indian Ocean. A five minute walk to the flying
school. Even the Medical Examination is only a short
walk down the road.
The team noted the "great vibe" at the airport. One
member was overheard saying "If I were starting out
again ......... this is the place I would choose".
In Durban we offer both fixed-wing
and helicopter training. Microlight training is
available in Durban.

Clearly South Africa is being chosen by more and more
students. We have experienced a rise in both enquiries
