Full time Commercial Program.
We offer a full time course which will see a student obtaining his / her PPL in 10 weeks and his / her CPL in 12 months. Students enrolling for this specific program will also have access to a student training facility and accommodation close to Grand Central Airport. The student will have a structured program with all his briefings, ground school, flying, study time and examinations laid out. The course also features buffer periods in case of weather delays. This course is suitable for students wishing to make a career of flying.
All our training courses have been designed with the emphasis on safety, standards, abnormal and emergency procedures. All instructors at Superior have been trained to ensure that the standards, procedures and checks are the same, regardless of which instructor is offering the training.
Our courses are outcomes based, with the pilot having both theoretical and practical knowledge to fly safely. Our courses cover a wide variety of subjects not normally included in the training curriculum. These extra courses include topics such as human performance, emergency procedure training, flight planning and weather avoidance, to name but a few. We feel these topics are essential to a pilot, especially at the private pilot level, as this forms the foundation for all future training.
The Superior Aviation Academy Manager is responsible for oversight on all training programs, outcomes and feedback to sponsors.
