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. The team at Guthrie's patience, ability and sense of humour were instrumental in preparing me for the final test. In particular my instructors expert tuition, seasoned professional advice and constant encouragement enabled me to make the best of my   practical training. ...

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!!

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.

In 2009 the satellites monitoring the international VHF distress frequency of 121.5Mhz on which the aircraft emergency locator beacons (ELBA / ELT) operate were upgraded to 406Mhz. This meant that only land based air traffic service units and other aircraft were monitoring 121.5Mhz. As reception is strictly line of sight it is difficult to locate aircraft and effect a rescue, often requirng large search parties and long periods of time.  The implemented satellite system allows the pilot to raise the alarm as soon as it becomes necessary, the aircraft is then monitored continuosly and key personal  alerted via phone, sms, and email. 

 

 

Test-sos Spidertrack
The pictures above show the track of a test SOS carried out recently and the satellite trackers user panel - the aircraft is seen making a simulated forced landing at an airfield before climbing out and returning to base.
The key personal were alerted before the aircraft approached the field approximately 1 minute after the alarm was raised and were able to track the flight on their mobile phones.
