Training Sites:

 Our 3 training sites were selected with conveniences for our students in mind and offer a superior learning experience. 

We have training facilities located in:

Mombasa | Nairobi | Naivasha

Mombasa Training Site | Greenwood Resort, Mtwapa

The Kenya coast offers notoriously good weather and flying conditions and just in case mother nature do not play ball we have an indoor flying hall.  

We are conveniently located on the outskirts of Mombasa in Mtwapa. Just far enough away from airports but close enough to be easily accessible. Our facility is within Greenwood Resort and we can arrange accommodation and meals so you can stay on site with other students and get a fully immersive learning experience. 

Nairobi Training Site| St. Elizabeth Boys High School, Karen

Our Nairobi site is in Karen within St. Elizabeth Boys High School. We have large outdoor flying areas as well as a large indoor flying hall for poor weather days.  

Naivasha Training Site| Kedong Ranch, South Lake 

This site had thousands of acres of out door training area and is ideal for specialized and advanced training.
