Who We Are
Sun Quest Aviaition is a flight training school in South Africa, located in sunny Johannesburg, with nearly year-round perfect flying weather.
Few of us experience the exhilaration of actually flying an airplane. It takes training, knowledge and skill to master the art and science of flight.

Actually What We Do
The Private Pilot Licence (PPL) is the take-off to your career in Aviation, or the gateway to recreational flying....A PPL allows you to do private flights, and to train further for a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) in order to work commercially as a pilot. Training can be done on a full-time or part-time basis. The PPL course is a very important first step in your life as a pilot.View more
After completing your PPL it is recommended that you obtain a Night Rating....The Night Rating enables you to fly at night (15 minutes after sunset to 15 minutes before sunrise). This Rating is usually done towards training for your Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL). You will be permitted to start your Night Rating any time after the completion of your PPL (Private Pilot Licence).View more
An Instrument Rating (IR) is the Rating that will allow you to fly in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC).... These are conditions of poor visibility, low cloud base and generally adverse weather .The Rating qualifies you to fly an Aircraft relying solely on its Flight Instruments. You can commence the Instrument Rating Course when you have approximately 140 to 150 hours flight experienceView more
