Capital Air Academy
Our state-of-the-art Helicopter simulator, which is an exact replica of a Bell (206 series);is the only one of its kind in South Africa! This type-specific program offers an exclusive 200-degree view, inside a Bell 206 airframe; allowing its users the most realistic piloting experience next to actually being in the real thing!
This type of realistic training is fully certified by SACAA for various credits towards licensing – from basic hovering to full emergencies, as well as allowing pilots to log hours towards their instrument rating. Pilots are further able to do RNAV procedures and receive license certifications, due to the sophisticated Garmin 430 installed. Our instructor will be able to help you emulate detailed scenarios allowing flying-lovers the ability to gain knowledge and insight into this specialized field, without any previous training! An exciting encounter for a training pilot and the perfect gift for any aviation fan!
