From a young age, I aspired to defy gravity and fly! I cannot imagine doing anything else. I would recommend Starlite as the training provider of choice, as the environment is conducive for learning to become a pilot. There were so many highlights during my days as a student, that I cannot single out one. My entire training experience with Starlite was amazing, from the people I have met, to the sites I have seen and more. I am currently a helicopter instructor at Starlite’s Mossel Bay Academy. I intend to grow in experience, so I have a firm foundation for building my career. Some further plans that I have for future and am working on, is to continue to work at creating awareness and generating funds for those aspiring aviators from townships and rural areas, so they too can follow their dream. – X
I began my training at Starlite Aviation Training Academy in late 2014, at the age of 17. I knew little about aviation. Today, I look back to the day when I first started and its funny to think that a young boy not knowing a thing would be able to confidently perform a task in one of the most demanding, responsible and challenging careers.
Starlite exceeded all my expectations and made training to be a pilot the most wonderful experiences that I could have imagined. From the very competent, experienced, disciplined and passionate instructors, who are disciplined and regard procedures and the safety of their student as a number one priority, to the aircraft maintenance team who ensure the serviceably and safety of the aircraft in which we train, to the ground staff who fuel clean the aircraft, as well as Starlite’s holistic approach to training and all-round excellence, the Company worthy of competing with any training academy globally.
Three years into training and I can say that I am confident and well- prepared, to enter the world of aviation and truly grateful for the opportunities that lie ahead. I am excited to enter the commercial world of aviation.
Flying runs in my family. I have flown with my dad since I was 4 years old. I train at Starlite because of the friendly, professional staff and great aircraft availability.
