WHO ARE WE?
To be one of the best Air Tractor training facility for pilots and engineers around the world. Helping meet the demand for aerial applicators and technicians in Africa and abroad.
WHY AG AVIATION FLIGHT ACADEMY?
01- QUALITY OF EDUCATION
With a strong focus on safety, the quality of education we provide is highly prioritised. We are an approved part 141 flight school with comprehensive, ICAO approved training programs.
02- OWN FLEET
03- BEST INSTRUCTORS
WHY TRAIN WITH US?
THE FNPT II FLIGHT SIMULATOR TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES:
REDUCED INSURANCE PREMIUMS
Our simulator provides the opportunity to endorse Air Tractor approved/verified crew members. In turn, reducing often excessive insurance premiums.
For the first time, African Ag-Pilots and Engineers will not need to make the laborious journey to Europe each year. With a local operator like AAFA, regular refresher training will be more practical, affordable and accessible.
OWNER PEACE OF MIND
The Air Tractor is a high technological marvel that requires the best possible training, line checks and endorsements of pilot capability that can only be checked in a flight simulator.
