“Within all of us is a varying amount of space lint and star dust, the residue from our creation. Most are too busy to notice it, and it is stronger in some than others. It is strongest in those of us who fly and is responsible for an unconscious, subtle desire to slip into some wings and try for the elusive boundaries of our origin.”

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our members say:

I flew my first flight in a Cessna at the Algoa Flying Club, and today I land airliners in places like New York, London and Sydney, something that I only dream’t about when sitting in a Cessna back home.

The Algoa Flying Club’s depth of training and experience guided me through to qualifying as a Commercial Pilot.  They kept alive the sheer thrill and excitement of flying an aircraft.

I got my private pilot’s licence at the Algoa Flying Club, before my Matric Certificate.  My school holidays were spent in and around AFC.  The Algoa Flying Club offered more that just a high standard of training, it was also a place to meet people, make friends and take part in many flying activities. Many pilots who trained at the Algoa Flying Club have become very successful in their flying careers.  I achieved my first command on the Boeing 727 at the age of 30, and have maintained my command position, currently flying the Bombardier Global XRS.

I came to the Algoa Flying Club from the UK to specifically do my PPL and Night Rating which I did with Robbie Burt who was an absolute legend.  I then hired a 172 for hour building and wnt back to the UK to do the JAR ATPL written exams for 6 months.  I then moved to Australia for Cathay Pacific’s Cadet Pilot Program.

  I always remember my time in PE and my humble beginings trying to land ZS-KEO.
