|FIVE GOOD REASONS WHY...
to complete your IF rating at CTFTC
- CTFTC operate several fully IFR equipped aircraft allowing us to practice actual NDB, VOR
and ILS approaches where many flying schools can only simulate them in a simulator.
- All navigation facilities are in close proximity to our home airfield (FAFK).
Being based at FAFK, we can be established on the FACT ILS within 10 min of take off.
This is not even possible for aircraft based at Cape Town International.
- Proprietary training approaches allow us to practice uninterrupted when Cape Town ATC is busy.
- Wide open areas to practice simulated approaches clear of high terrain within a structured
environment under the supervision of a qualified Grade II flight instructor.
Applications are accepted throughout the year.
