Testimonials

Guthrie Aviation is a highly professional organisation driven by strong leadership and excellent instructors. I have learnt an enormous amount during the PPL course. Thank you to the team for the patience and guidance in the air and on the ground.

Phillip Dumont de Chassart

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 ...

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 ...

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!!

Guest

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.

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.

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

Whether on a adhoc or more permanent basis, we can provide qualified, experienced pilots to fly your aircraft, or act as a safety pilot, releaving you of the stress and hassle associated with piloting your own aircraft.

Being identified as having "The Right Stuff" from early in their training careers, and being monitored on a continual basis as they develop their experience, there is no doubt in our minds that they are the right person for the job.

Our pilot's hold various different licences between them, including:

  • Zimbabwean Commercial Pilot's Licences and Airline Pilot's Licences
  • FAA (USA) Airline Pilot's Licences
  • JAA (European) Airline Pilot's Licences
  • South African Commercial Pilot's Licence validations

Our practical/operational experience includes:
