The 43 Air School Ground School Team

There are additional guest lecturers who supplement the team, but these are the full time staff of the 43 Air School Ground School; the “backroom” men and ladies who facilitate the theoretical examination process at 43 Air School.

Most students find the theoretical part of their studies to become a commercial pilot the most challenging part of their training. It is difficult for the inexperienced pilot to become competent in various subjects to the international EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) Standard.

My happiest childhood memories were that of a four year old sitting in our backyard in the country town of Wellington, waiting for the Boeing to fly over our house. At the slightest sound or sight, there would be a performance from me. I would call the whole neighbourhood’s kids to come and look at the aeroplane that will bring me something special one day. Well, I actually thought it would bring me another brother or sister…because, I thought that was where babies came from.

43 Air School has an advantage in having its own Air Traffic Services (ATS) College. We train Aerodrome Flight Information Service (AFIS) personnel for service both here and elsewhere in the country. The AFIS provides pilots of aircraft with details of other known traffic taking off, landing and flying in the vicinity of the airfield. Local knowledge is thus extremely important and this is one of the reasons why the AQFIS had to validate his/her license at the airfield at which they are going to operate.
