Learning to fly can lead to a lucrative career as a pilot, but the cost of obtaining a pilot’s license can be costly. In South Africa, the costs of flying lessons are less expensive than in most other countries, as well as quicker to obtain. While the costs vary at different flight schools, most are relatively similar. Training to be a pilot in South Africa brings the adventures of new experiences, world-class training and plenty of fun in the sun.

Most flight schools have associated costs and accommodations included as well as the cost of flying lessons. Of course, one would have to provide their own funds to fly to South Africa so that they could attend lessons. But, adding the total cost of the lessons plus the airfare to South Africa, one will still spend less money than just paying for lessons in their home country.

One can train to be a private pilot, helicopter pilot or commercial pilot. Commercial rates are usually not quoted because they are based on each student’s individual needs, so one has to contact the schools directly to discuss rates.

It is essential to remember that when getting prices that they will be in South African Rands. The international currency exchange rate will determine final costs. The exchange rate fluctuates, so it can vary from one day to the next.

Obtaining a Fixed Wing Private Pilot’s License costs R 80 000, a Helicopter Private Pilot’s License is R 160 000 and a Microlighting Pilot’s License is R 36 000. Again, this is just for the flying lessons, prices associated with the lessons and accommodations. The prices do not include any airfare or transportation costs to the flight school.

Choosing to receive a pilot’s license at one of South Africa’s flight schools will not be a mistake. There is one that will fit each person’s individual needs and budget.
