Andrew Hill

I recently got my PPL after thanks to my training at Guthrie Aviation. Due to financial issues it had taken 5 years, punctuated by frequent and often long breaks in between, which was less than ideal. My instructors were fantastic managed my slow progress as best as they could. I was pushed really hard with a mix of both encouragement and harsh admonition which I believe has made me a better ...

Kelvin Kutoka

Thank you to the team for helping me get my type conversion onto the Cessna 180. I really appreciated their enthusiasm and commitment to transfer as much of their considerable knowledge and experience onto me as they could, in order that I could safely and correctly operate this "tricky" aircraft. I would have to go a long way to find this kind of professional instruction.

In particular my instructors expert tuition, seasoned professional advice and constant encouragement enabled me to make the best of my   practical training. ...

Peter Knight

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 ...

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.
