We were treated to a traditional homemade meal by our Seychelles Students this month.

The warm spices and rich flavours of Seychellois cuisine are gathered from the broad ethnic diversity of the country’s culture.

Influences from France, Africa, India and Asia combine to create an intense, vibrant flavour unique to the Seychelles.

Solo Recognition - June

01 July 2015

The traditional removal of a new pilot's shirt tail is a sign of the instructor's new confidence in his student. 

In the days of tandem trainers, the instructor would tug at the student’s shirt tail whenever he was getting himself into trouble. After the first solo, the new pilot is competent in the air and does not need such a safety device. 

This tradition has been modernised at 43 by cutting ties instead of shirt tails at our monthly Solo parties.

Students were tasked with building a structure with spagetti and mini marshmallows within a 15 minute time limit and the end results were quite impressive.

A very warm welcome to our May Intake!

Every six weeks we welcome a new group of students to the family by means of a formal welcome from our CEO, Attie Niemann, followed by a guided tour of our facilities and finally, in true South African style, a traditional braai. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet the new students and their parents in an informal setting.
