I was just having a look at some flight school in SA.
Although not one of the schools I have looked at make reference to whether you come out with a CAA,FAA,JAA licence.
Can anyone enlighten me on the fact?
Does anyone have any experience of Flight Schools in SA?
You don't mention which licence you are thinking of doing. But if it's a CPL etc. Then you will have to convert that later by doing the JAA written exams and some flight training and passing the CPL and Multi/IR flight tests when you come back.
SA CAA it is then, I am hoping to get my full atpl.
However from what I have seen so far it is difficult to ascertain what licenses one comes out with and now I know it's SA CAA which will then need to be converted you say.
If you happen to know any schools out there that do offer CAA/JAA courses to atpl level I would love to know
I came to the conclusion it would be easier and not a whole lot more expensive to do the training here or the UK.
There is a lot of wasted time and hanging about waiting for the weather in Ireland and England, and that burns lots of money, is very frustrating and breaks momentum. Training overseas is not always any cheaper but you can do more in a much shorter space of time when the weather is onside. As someone who completed a PPL in 4 weeks and 45 hrs from start to finish it seems barely believable to me that people in Ireland get bogged down for 1-2 years and 100hrs to get one.
