A Day In The Life @43 Air School

43 Air School is heavily dependent of our professional AFIS to ensure that our skies are safe; this is an extremely busy airspace! In future the AFIS staff will wear dark blue epaulettes; two bars initially and then two and a half for OJTIs (on the job training instructors) and three bars for DEs. (Designated Examiners). Here newly licensed Kwano Buthelezi and OJTIs Liam Goldie and Tim Morton show off the new apparel.

Seychelles visiting 43 Air School - Port Alfred

We have around 20 students from Seychelles at 43 at any given time and they really are some of most dedicated performing Aviators.
The Seychelles are an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean off East Africa, known for its beaches, coral reefs, diving, nature reserves and rare wildlife such as giant Aldabra tortoises. Mahé island, with an international airport, is a key transport hub, home to capital Victoria, the mountain rain forests of Morne Seychellois National Park and white-sand beaches including Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka. — in the photo: Alan Philpott, Shaun Musson, Trevor Myburgh, Attie Niemann and Des Lynch.
