South African 
Commercial Pilot Programme

Zino Aviation's SACAA Pilot Training Course is run by Paramount Aviation Academy located in Bethlehem, South Africa. The course duration is approximately 16-18 months. This course will make you a fully qualified Commercial Pilot possessing a Private Pilot License, Commercial Pilot License, Night Rating, Multi-Engine Rating and Instrument Rating.

 

The weather is very good in Bethlehem, South Africa so you should be able to fly on a daily basis. The school is the only flight school operating out of the airfield, unlike other locations like Johannesburg which are very popular. This means students can concentrate on learning to fly without being rushed by other aircraft in the area. It also means students avoid busy congestion on the ground before take-off and in the air during training. This allows you to get more value for your money, spending it on actual training in the air rather than waiting behind other aircraft.

0 - CPL

 
PARAMOUNT 100.jpeg

SACAA 0-CPL is designed for students with little or no flying experience who want to pursue a career as commercial pilots.

You will first start your training and acquire an SCAA PPL (Private Pilot License). You will then be taught to fly at night and acquire a night rating. Upon reaching the necessary flight experience, you will continue with Instrument training and acquire an Instrument Rating. After hour building and further training, you will finally acquire a Commercial Pilot License. The final stage of the programme is the Multi-Engine Rating; this will enable you to fly aircraft with multiple engines.  After successful completion of the zero to CPL course, you will be issued an SCAA CPL(A) license with Instrument and Multi-Engine Ratings. The privileges of the holder of a CPL enable you to act as pilot-in-command (Captain) or co-pilot (First Officer) in commercial opera

PPL ONLY

 
PARAMOUNT 9.jpeg

SACAA Private Pilot License (PPL) is a license that allows you to fly on single-engine land (SEL) aircraft in visual meteorological conditions (VMC) in non-commercial operations. In simple terms, with a PPL you can fly for leisure, but can't get paid. PPL training is the first step towards becoming a professional pilot. Many pilot's struggling for funds usually opt to do the 'PPL Only' course so they can at least start their journey, even if they can't financially finish it just yet.  Once you complete your PPL(A) training, you will get your Private Pilot License and SEL (Single Engine Land) qualification and you will be able to fly by yourself without an instructor. You can then start flying recreationally or continue on to get your commercial license later.
