Fixed Wing Training

Introductory Flight

This is an experimental, hands-on flight, conducted with the guidance from one of Starlite's experienced instructors. The flight is added to the 50 hours required to complete a Private Pilot Licence.

 

Private Pilot Licence

Once a student qualifies as a Private Pilot, they are permitted to carry passengers. The licence permits one to fly for business purposes or recreation. Students are required to complete 8 subjects and examinations, and 50 flying hours, before graduating.

Ground School duration: 5-6 months. This may, however, vary for each individual student.
 

Night Rating

Qualifies a pilot to fly at night. Pilots who wish to follow a career in the fields of EMS, Vehicle Tracking and the Police require a night rating.

 

Commercial Pilot Licence

Qualifies a pilot to carry passengers or cargo for remuneration. Eight theoretical subjects and examinations, as well as 200 hours of flying is required to graduate with a Commercial Pilot Licence.

Ground School duration: 18 months. This may, however, vary for each individual student.
 

Instrument Rating

Qualifies a pilot to fly in Instrument Meteorological conditions. Starlite's state of the art simulator affords a pilot the experience to train for 30 hours in authentic simulated conditions. A further 10 hours must be completed in an aircraft.
 

Instructors Rating

Qualifies a pilot to give instruction and be registered as a Grade III Instructor. After a further 200 hours of flying instruction, the pilot is upgraded to a Grade II Instructor. This qualification opens doors to professional pilot careers as an instructor and other employment opportunities.
