The sunny skies at the Cato Ridge Aviation Centre, Emoyeni are situated just under 50km from Durban. Our location and facilities are ideal for both local and international visitors.
Cato Ridge Aviation Centre offers flying lessons in great, all-year round, weather conditions. Costs depend on which aircraft you choose for training, and how often you fly. Costs vary from R850 to R1100 per hour. There are no landing and approach fees at Emoyeni airfield. The ideal weather conditions and friendly instructors will make the experience one to remember and we look forward to welcoming you to our sunny skies.
Our facilities include: Flying school office, private lecture room, examination room. A lounge to relax in after a 'hard' day's flying! Swimming pool - a great place to cool off after lectures, and the bar - a great place to cool off after anything. Also used for hanger talk with other pilots and instructors.
We like to explore other airfields around South Africa, and we invite trainees to join one of our "Flyaway" trips for coffee and/or breakfast. Hitch a ride with one of the qualified pilots on a flying visit to the Drakensburg, North Coast, South Coast while you are still training and get "air experience" (it all helps!). Emoyeni Aviation Park offers accommodation in double-bed chalets if you decide to stay over.
For our overseas visitors, we can make recommendations for other places of interest to visit, such as game parks or suggest a schedule that will allow you to attend interesting events (such as international surfing competitions on the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal)
