Testimonials

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 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 ...

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.

After starting my training in SA, coming to Guthrie was a breath of fresh air.  The teaching was far superior in the classroom and in the air.  Thanks to Guthrie for making me a more knowledgeable and safer pilot.  A great atmosphere and very approachable staff.

This new approach made it an absolute pleasure, with ground school and exams being written at the school rather than ...

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.

Crew Resource Management

Most pilots would be aware that human behaviour and performance are cited as causal factors in the majority of aircraft accidents. While the aviation industry has benefited from the introduction of new technologies, human operators still continue to make errors. We cannot eliminate human error, but we can catch and minimise errors before their consequences become unacceptable. One of the best ways to achieve this is to train pilots so that they have the necessary human factors skills to cope with the risks and demands of flying.

Human factors entails the minimisation of human error and its consequences by optimising the relationships between people, activities and equipment within a given system, such as aviation. Fatal accidents in passenger-carrying aircraft are very rare, however, safety improvements can always be made.

 

Comming Soon - in the mean time you may want to look at some of the online practice exams we have put under student resources.

Dangerous goods are articles or substances, which are capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment when transported by air.

These characteristics will make their transport by air hazardous, unless suitable precautions are taken. The commodities include the goods that are not only obvious substances such as acids, radioactive materials, poisons and explosives, but also some unlikely items such as magnets, wheelchairs with batteries, bleaches, breathing apparatus, some pesticides, etc.

According to Zimbabwean Air Navigation regulations (ANRs) all flight crew are required to recieved dangerous goods training every 24 months.
