Testimonials

Guthrie Aviation will always have a special place in my heart, It was there that I first learned that I could do things I never thought possible: standing in front of students and being a Ground Instructor and being able to fly an aeroplane. Even more importantly, it was the place where I learned to connect with other people on a level deeper than schoolwork or flying. I was a part of something ...

To the GAS team! Congratulations on creating a "world class" flight training school....It has been inspirational to see the transformation over the years. I was fortunate enough to do my multi-engine IR last year through the school based on their newly approved IR training course. This new approach made it an absolute pleasure, with ground school and exams being written at the school rather than ...

Craig Davenport

Thanks very much for doing the DG with our Zim and Zambian crew. Its great to see that Zimbabwe has now got these kind of cources on offer. I really hope that you get the support from the rest of the Zim operators as i can rate it better than any of the South African cources. Our next plan is to get you into our other operations in both Botswana and Namibia. Please let us know once you have ...

I joined Guthrie Aviation School in 2011 to undertake a PPL part-time. 50 hours and two years later I emerged with a Zim PPL.

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.

FAQ

More and more pilots are leaving their licence renewal process untill the last few days in the month that it expires.  It would appear that they are worried about the validity dates of their licence changing. 

 Inevitably what happens is, for one reason or another, they cannot do their renewal flight test on their planned date and their licence expires, leading to all sorts of issues.

Quite simply put - you can do your renewal on any day within the month that your licence expires and the validity dates will remain the same! 

In other words, if your licence expires on the 31st day of March, you can do the renewal on the 1st of March (the same year!) and the validity dates will remain the same!

Don't leave your renewal to the last week of the month and then expect the school to work some kind of magic when it expires!  It is your personal licence and your responsibility to keep it valid!

Please also take time to read the preparation for flight review articles on this web site to ensure you come prepared for your flight review. Doing this will make the process less arduous for both you and your examiner and may even afford you the opportunity to brush up on your skills or lear something new.
