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.

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!!


Just a small comment on yesterday, how great it is to see the incredible metamorphosis that is taking place at GAS! I recall doing my I.R. with you in 1994 in those same rooms and how different ( and much busier) things are today! I do miss the piece of arbitrary bent coat hangar wire holding up the toilet seat though! Thanks for the very long hours put in with me yesterday trying to teach an ...

Peter Wienand

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.

Flight Plan Form

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.

When it comes to learning it often pays to learn from someone who has both a good understanding of the theoretical knowledge and practicle experiance in the field being taught. This way you are able to use the knowledge you gain to the best possible advantage, ensure you fully understand why something is done and don't just end up doing something for the sake of it, while neglecting more important things.  The trend in alot of aviation schools is to use recently qualified pilots, who are trying to build hours and gain experiance before moving on to "better things".  These instructors of there because they have to be not because they want to be. 

At Guthrie Aviation, this is not the case! All our flight instructors have thousands of flight hours, or have devoted years to instructing before they get to sit with you in the aircraft. They are there because they have a genuine desire to see you succeed. The result is a higher standard, and more practicle level of instruction. The attention to detail and safty orientated approach ensures a high level of aviation discipline in our students, that sees them going on to get good jobs and having successfull careers.








Guthrie Aviation is a CAAZ approved Authorised Training Organization (ATO).
We offer the following courses but are in a position to provide custom training should the need arise.
