Gain Hours & Experience


The question often asked is: What do I do once I have completed my Commercial Pilot Licence? Who is going to employ me? This is never an easy answer. Flying is like any other work activity; in the sense that the better qualified you are the better your chances of finding work.

Instructor Rating South Africa

GET YOUR Instructor Rating


An Instructor Rating will give you the edge over a pilot who does not have the rating, providing you with one more avenue that you can use to gain hours and experience. It also adds experience and value to your CV and career in aviation.

The instructor’s rating consists of two basic elements:

  1. Theory and examinations
  2. Practical flying.

You need to complete 20 hours of ground preparation in which you cover all the ground lectures. You will prepare and present these lessons until they are of a satisfactory standard. Once you have completed this phase you will write the SACAA exams.

The second phase of the training will be to complete 20 hours of flight training and flight test.

Once you have completed the above you will be a qualified Gr III flight instructor.
