About Leading Edge Flight School

Leading Edge Flight School has been in operation since 1995, and relocated to Hoedspruit, South Africa, during January 2002. There are two full-time instructors available. The school is registered with the South African Civil Aviation Authority (ATO No. CAA/0141) RAASA (Recreation Aviation Administration South Africa) and the Microlight Association of South Africa (MISASA). The school offers training towards the National Pilot License (NPL) and the Private Pilot License (PPL). We offer the full range of NPL weight shift microlight training – please note that it needs to be on your own aircraft, as the school does not have one to hire out – and conventionally controlled microlight training on the Bantam and Light Sport Aircraft on the Jabiru SP.
