From your first intro flight to specialised helicopter pilot training, Base 4 Aviation will ensure you meet your goals, have fun, and get to where you want to be. Every person has goals that are unique to their individual needs and lifestyle. We understand those needs and create custom programs to fit the needs of each and every one of our students.
Our newly introduced Guest Speaker Programme allows our students to learn first-hand from some of South Africa’s foremost aviation experts, adding significant value to the student’s training experience.
Our quarterly Fly Aways will expose the students to elements of helicopter flight that one would otherwise only be exposed to during their piloting career. Students will fly to places like the Cederberg Mountains, Botrivier, Gansbaai, Overberg, and the Kalahari Desert where you will get to develop your mountain flying skills, game  capture, precision flying and sling work.
Base 4 ensures that its high level of expertise, training and experience will enable you to get the highest possible quality of flight training in South Africa.
