New Developments @ 43


Food Service Management at 43 realized the need to keep abreast of the Marketing trends of the school, which predicted an increase in Muslim students requiring Halal meals. Collaboration between departments involved ensured that 43 was yet again at the helm of progressive service delivery, culminating in the prestigious position of being the only flight training academy in the southern hemisphere to boast a fully compliant Halal Kitchen. A warm welcome to new members of staff and custodians of our Halal offering Fadeelah and Aliyah

Halāl is any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. This refers not only to food and drink but also all matters of daily life. Halal criteria specifies both what foods are allowed, and how the food must be prepared. The foods addressed are most types of meat, with the most common example of non-Halal food being pork. Halal criteria for non-pork items include their source, the cause of the animal's death, and how it was processed. All food to be used comes from suppliers that use Halal practices.


There are many challenges to be met in becoming a commercial pilot; one of these is the fact that English is the international language of aviation. This means that the student must demonstrate a level of English proficiency before flight training may begin. 43 Air School now presents English language training on Campus in conjunction with the Language Lab, a Johannesburg based service provider with whom we have developed a professional relationship.
