Aeronav Academy was established 35 years ago as an Aviation Training Academy providing ground school lectures to aspiring commercial pilots and was accredited by the South African Civil Aviation Authority as a Flight Training School in 2005. We operate a varied fleet of aircraft including Diamond DA20, Cessna 182’s and a Diamond Twinstar Multi-engine. This allows us to accommodate training from the private pilot licence (PPL) through to the airline transport pilot licence (ATPL).
Over the years we have established ourselves as a reputable, highly skilled training academy and have recently branched out into a Flight Training School using modern, glass cockpit, composite aircraft.
Our aim is to provide our clients with safe, quality training in modern aircraft and a ground school staffed with highly qualified lecturers and specialists in their field. Whether you choose to fly just for pleasure as a Private Pilot or whether you wish to make aviation your career, we can provide you with an approved course tailored to your needs.
Aeronav offers flying and ground school training for the Private Pilot’s Licence, Commercial Pilot Licence, Airline Transport Pilot Licence, Instructor Ratings, Twin Conversions, and Multi-engine Instrument Ratings in our new Diamond D42 Twinstar.
We can also offer hour building flying at extremely competitive prices on our fleet of aircraft.
Our team of flying instructors is dedicated to offering you exceptional standards of instruction and management will ensure that an excellent rapport between you and your instructor is established.
Our school is based at Lanseria International Airport, North of Johannesburg and in beautiful country surroundings. The airport has 4 runways and is equipped for precision and non precision approaches plus approach lighting which is excellent for professional flight training. The airport and its environment is perfect for training from ab-initio through to commercial licence training. A controlled airspace provides the student with an excellent grounding in procedures and enables them to cope in any situation and not be intimidated by heavy traffic. The general flying area (flight training area) is in close proximity to the airport which saves the student time and money.
