Welcome to the Academy...
The Stellenbosch Flight Academy (SFA) is a specialist flight training institution focusing on advanced flight and ground training for General Aviation Professional and Private pilots. At the heart of our training facility is our modern Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD or Simulator) that is certified to the JAR and SA-CAA-FSTD A for Flight Navigation and Procedural Training Level II (FNPT II) standard. This accreditation allows us to offer many advanced training courses, including various licence and rating annual renewals. (For a full accreditation list, click here)
Most of our flight training is focussed on Instrument Flight (IF) training and therefore allmost all of our flight training is done on our FSTD's. Where aircraft training is also required to complete a course, such flight training will typically be done by one of our partner schools and only in some exceptional cases, we also offer certain aircraft training. We also use in-house or external SA-CAA appoved DE's to conduct Skills Tests on our FSTD (Go to our Flight School to learn more about our flight training)
Due to the very high costs associated to acquire and operate a certified FSTD, our academy has partnered with most of the flying schools in the Western Cape to make our simulator facilities available to them under our Partner Program. This allows them to advertise, book and operate our FSTD as if it is their own. Under this program, our Partner Schools may use their own Instructors, provided they are rated and approved on our FSTD
