Outeniqua Flight Academy is conveniently situated at Ermelo Aerodrome in Ermelo, Mpumalanga, South Africa, virtually in between Gauteng and Nelspruit / Kruger National Park, with less than an hour flight required to both. 30km to the east of Ermelo, you will find yourself in the heart of South Africa’s largest lake district in the Chrissiesmeer area with some 270 lakes and pans in a 20km range, making for fantastic scenery during training.
The airfield is situated in uncontrolled airspace, allowing for maximum airborne time and very little time wasted on the ground due to other traffic or Air Traffic Control, making it ideal for flight training.
