ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY TRAINING
The fully accredited HORIZON English Language Proficiency (ELP) test enables pilots to fulfil their GCAA licence requirements.
Our premises are purpose-built for flight training which allows us to provide our students the benefit of a 10,000 square meter facility with state-of-the-art training aids and the best available resources.
The training facilities are co-located within the HORIZON campus area and the dispersal consists of nineteen helipads. The climate provides year-round sunny skies minimizing the number of days lost due to poor weather conditions. The desert terrain has the additional benefit of presenting many opportunities for limited power scenarios, mountain flying, and desert training conditions.
Our Simulator is a two place, side-by-side seating cockpit with a complete instrument panel provided for visual and instrument training. The software provides an accurate flight model including translational lift, ground effect, torque, auto-rotation, etc. Over 24,000 airports and all navigation aids are available.
