Cape Town Flight Training Centre

Company Information


CTFTC is committed to providing the highest standard of flight training available for those wishing to work towards their private or commercial license.

We also offer a comprehensive range of services to qualified aviators who are interested in advancing their ability, or simply keeping their licenses current.

At CTFTC you will be personally guided through each stage of your training programme - from the first, introductory flight all the way through to the day you receive your qualification.

Your training course will be customized according to your own time and financial constraints. Through the example set by our highly professional instructors, we wish to inspire each and every student to continually strive to improve his/her competency, either as a recreational or professional pilot.

We hope this website provides you with all you need know about us. However, we would love for you to come and visit us at Fisantekraal, discuss your objectives in person, and perhaps take an Introductory Flight to experience what flying is all about.

We look forward to meeting you!

Cape Town Flight Training Centre (CTFTC) was founded in 2003 at Fisantekraal Airfield near Cape Town. The school is owned and run by Findlay Smith who also performs aerobatic training on a full time basis.

Although there are currently six flying schools/clubs in the Cape Town/Stellenbosch area, we saw the need for a much more cost effective environment for professional flying training than could be offered by our competitors. This concept has proven valid by the remarkable growth of the enterprise.

From humble beginnings with one Cessna 150 aircraft and two instructors, the school has gone from strength to strength.

We now boast a staff of 11 people including 5 full time instructors and a fleet of eight aircraft including the YAK-52 aerobatic trainer. All aspects of private and commercial flying training are catered for.
