Why Choose Durban Aviation Academy?

Flying is one of the most exhilarating, fun and fulfilling activities one can participate in. However, choosing the right flying school for you can initially be a daunting task. Learning to fly is a big investment and involves a lot of time, commitment and expenditure.

There are several points that need to be considered when choosing a school. Firstly, we recommend that you do not settle for the first school you visit. Talk to as many as you can and certainly don’t go for the cheapest. there’s a reason they’re cheap.

We also provide flight experiences for those who want the thrill of adventure flights for a day.
