Fisantekraal Airfield
Cape Town Flight Training Centre is located at Fisantekraal airfield, the BEST FLYING TRAINING LOCATION in the Western Cape.

There are MANY GOOD REASONS to fly with CTFTC from Fisantekraal.


Your safety is of paramount importance and it will not be compromised at Fisantekraal: no wake turbulence or jet-wash from airliners and no limiting noise abatement procedures. Four certified and Licenced concrete runways are wide, comparatively long and accept all prevailing wind directions. All runway overshoots have safe emergency landing areas.

Cost efficiency

It is an uncontrolled airfield with light traffic. This means that no costly time is wasted on the ground or in the air waiting for commercial traffic.

The general flying area (GF) is a designated area for flight training. FAFK is situated adjacent to the General Flying Area and so lessons can be competed without additional and costly transit time.

Holding time and transit time costs suffered by students operating from other Licenced Training airfields in the area can add up to 30% to the cost of your PPL.

Training efficiency

FAFK is a Licenced airfield, thus allowing students to fly solo.

Fisantekraal is situated adjacent to the Cape Town International Airport zone, which allows our students to quickly fly into a controlled area for flight experience with Air Traffic Control.

Operational Efficiency

Flight training is absolutely constrained by weather conditions.

By merit of the multiple runway configuration at Fisantekraal, flying in stronger wind conditions is possible, when single-runway airfields are unable to operate due to crosswind limitations. –

Often, and by merit of our location, we continue flying when other airfields in the area suffer from coastal fog.
