I have had flight instruction and testing through FTOs in USA, UK and most recently in my native Zimbabwe. Your professionalism, standards and dedication to developing safe and competent pilots is second to none. I was surprised but very grateful to have plugged fundamental gaps in the knowledgeable and safe operation of 'complex' aircraft; my profound gratitude to you guys, thank you!!

Just a small comment on yesterday, how great it is to see the incredible metamorphosis that is taking place at GAS! I recall doing my I.R. with you in 1994 in those same rooms and how different ( and much busier) things are today! I do miss the piece of arbitrary bent coat hangar wire holding up the toilet seat though! Thanks for the very long hours put in with me yesterday trying to teach an ...

Airport Security Passes

Coming to Charles Prince?
Please remember to bring your ID and cash, or a valid Security Pass when you come to the airport.
I doesn't matter that you were here yesterday or that your pass has just expired, either way, you are not going to have a pleasant experience.
Guthrie Aviation has appealed to the Airport Management for an understanding and customer oriented approach to security. The fact is that we do not have any control over Security at the Airport and there is nothing we can do to assist other than to provide you with good warning.

Satellite Tracking

As part of our ongoing safety managment and quality assurance program we have implemented satellight tracking on our aircraft. While enabling us to ensure that our aircraft are operated in accordance with our standard operating procedures it has also given us the ability to rapidly locate our aircraft in the event of an emergency. Pilots are also able to raise attention and communicate with the flight operations department through the use of standard "Mark" messages ensuring that you are never alone even if there is no radio or cell phone signal.

Our students are only a press of a button away from getting assistance should the need arise, and instructors are able to follow their students flights in real time ensuring that all the flight objectives were accomplished. 

As clients with passengers on our flights you have access to live tracking, although with less detail, you will be able to see where your flight is and when your guests may be expected to arrive.

----- SAFETY FIRST -----

Teaching someone to fly is not difficult. It's done every day all over the world.  Once you know how, the sky is the limit ... or is it?

Having opened our doors in 1995 we've focused not just on teaching people to fly, but giving them that extra something which makes them stand out from the rest.  What is that something?

It's what: -

  • Gets you noticed and provides opportunities where others find none.
  • Gives you the ability to call on superior knowledge and skill, when the chips are down, and save the day.
  • Makes you an aviator, and not just a pilot.
  • Makes you a professional and not just a worker
  • Gives you the power to..."Make the difference!"

To do this, instructors must: -

  • Get to know their student, identifying strong points and building on them, while providing insight on how to cope with challenging areas.
  • Be dedicated, devoted, and committed to going above and beyond, ensuring their student is the best they can be.
  • Be selfless - dedicated to the objective, even when it means being unpopular in the short term, for long term student benefits.
  • Provide encouragement, motivation and discipline, to ensure the right habits are learnt from the beginning.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our instructors for meeting these traits, and our students (past and present) for believing in us and affording us the opportunity to "Make the Difference".

We are rewarded for our efforts through your success, and are proud to have played a part.

To our prospective students, we hope you understand our passion lies in aviation training. We look forward to welcoming you on one of our courses soon, and to seeing you succeed.

Thank you,

The Guthrie Aviation Team
