About The Academy
Our aim is to provide one destination for international students to be able to do a type rating for any airline.
The Advanced Training Academy was founded in 2010. In 2020, we became a sister company to Mach 1 Aviation Academy and can offer aspirational pilots a full range of facilities.
Our site at Springs Airfield is near Johannesburg. It’s ideal for training because it has an outside controlled airspace with a non-congested circuit, short taxi time to the runways and extremely short flying time to the GF ( ± 5 min).
Our facilities include a flight simulator, ground school with online exams, and accommodation.
Students tell us that it’s a great experience to learn from our team of Senior Flight Instructors. They are renowned for their professionalism and high training standards. They love being in the company of fellow aviation enthusiasts while they’re training.
Our Flight Instructors put safety first and have an AT certificate.
We’d like you to help you spread your wings. Come fly with us!
