Online Training


- online restricted radio course for South African student pilots -

Why ONLINE?  Because small Flight Schools have a personalised flight training program with a flexible Student intake policy.  You start when YOU are ready, and move at the pace that YOUR life and circumstances allow.  You are not lost in a mass intake of students, (as so often  happens

Working from Home

in a Flight Training Academy). This makes lining up with a Restricted Radio Course just when you need it a bit tricky.

The BEST time to complete your Restricted Radio Course is when you have done one or two Circuit Sessions.

To make this possible, Radio Designated Examiner Telani Lithgow worked on this Course from 2012 to 2020 to make it possible for EVERY Flight Student to benefit from the convenience of an on-demand Course. Coupled with her passion for the Subject, there is only one likely outcome... you will truly UNDERSTAND Radio, so the Online CAA Exam will be a simple formality. How much?  R1350.

Lining up a Restricted Radio Designated Examiner for a Restricted Radio Course can feel a bit like herding cats. 

Who wants to struggle?  Much easier to do the course ONLINE, ON DEMAND , on YOUR OWN SCHEDULE. 


It's loads of information presented in an easy-to-follow format with a hint of humour and built-in memory aids based on some of Kevin Trudeaux's Mega Memory Course.

And yes, it is legit, created and presented by Telani Lithgow, Chief Flight Instructor at Pmb Aero Club, and a Restricted Radio Designated Examiner since 2012.

The online course will set you back R1350.

Jim Davis started 43 Air School back when it was some empty buildings and a grass strip.  He writes for flying magazines and is often asked for his analysis on Aircraft accidents.  Jim is not only a dear friend, but also has a delightful sense of humour and boy oh boy can the man spin a tail!  He has had me in tears of laughter for some of his stories, mouth agape for others. I have enjoyed every word.


Whether you read his training books or his true stories about his experiences, you will find his books difficult to put down.
