AIFA has 2 simulators serving each of its three bases. Our simulators are built by the Swiss company Elite. On each base we have a FNPT I and FNPT II simulator with 3D airfield simulation. Cockpits are based on the Piper Arrow and the Seneca III.

 

AIFA Aircraft Maintenance

The maintenance of the AIFA aircraft ensures the consistent delivery of reliable aircraft for the flying programme. We place a very high emphasis on the state of our aircraft and even minor deficiencies are rectified without delay.

The maintenance of the AIFA fleet of piston aircraft is entrusted to Test Flight Academy of South Africa (TFASA) whose sole owner is also a shareholder in AIFA. TFASA is based at Oudtshoorn, with a satellite facility in George. Once we start our flying operations from our third base in Beaufort West, they will also establish a satellite facility there. TFASA has a number of experienced and qualified Aircraft Maintenance Engineers at its disposal.

The TFASA maintenance team is led by engineer Wellington Charlie and they meet all the requirements of the CAA for an Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO).
