ABOUT NINETY NINES FLYING SCHOOL
Ninety Nines Flying School was established in 1975, and has established a reputation within the East Africa aviation industry for providing high quality ﬂight training services for the private, commercial and airline sectors. Ninety Nines flying School has extensive experience in training self and corporate sponsored pilots from different cultural backgrounds and from all around the world.
Located at Wilson Airport, Ninety-Nines Flying School was established to provide a service that set high standards in ﬂight training to ﬂying enthusiasts. The success of NNFS is heavily reliant on relevant and achievable philosophy, sophisticated training programs to translate that philosophy into tangible results, and selective management systems to provide quality control. The Institute offers training for pilots of all ages. Whether the students’ goal is recreational or to be a commercial pilot, NNFS will customize a program for the student.
To date, the Institute maintains the same high professional standards as well as a passion for providing an enjoyable experience to all clientele. Ninety Nines Flying School aims to provide a standard of training that is second to none, and yet not compromise the adventurous spirit that inspired heavier–than-air manned ﬂight.
NNFS offers students the following programs;
- Commercial Pilot License (CPL), a qualification that permits the holder to act as a pilot of an aircraft and be paid for his/her work. A commercial pilot’s license training is a serious undertaking both financially and mentally. Possession of a Commercial Pilot’s License allows the holder to carry hundreds of paying passengers and valuable cargo thousands of miles around the world, all of whom are entitled to and expect that the flight crew have attained the utmost training standards. Training to acquire a Commercial Pilot’s License is a huge commitment which will take over a year and costs a lot to achieve. However, those willing to make this commitment will embark on an exciting, adventurous and financially rewarding career. For a person wishing to fly airlines, business jets, etc. they would need to complete an Instrument Rating (IR) after completing their CPL.
- Instrument Rating refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). It requires additional training and instruction beyond what is required for a Commercial Pilot’s License, including rules and procedures specific to instrument flying, additional instruction in Meteorology, and more intensive training in flight solely by reference to the aircraft’s instruments. Testing consists of a practical Flight Test.
The Flight Test is divided into an oral component to verify that the applicant understands the theory of instrument flying and an actual flight to ensure the pilot possesses the practical skills required for safe IFR flight.
- A Private Pilot License (PPL) is a license that permits the holder to act as the pilot-in-command of an aircraft privately (not for pay). The requirements to obtain the license are determined by the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO), but the actual implementation varies widely from country to country. According to the ICAO, it is obtained by successfully completing a course with at least 40 hours of flight time, passing seven written exams, completing an extensive solo cross-country flight, and successfully demonstrating flying skills to an examiner during a flight test (including an oral exam).
- The Flight Instructor Rating allows the holder to give flight instruction to students training to acquire a Pilot’s License. Once qualified, the privileges can be extended to different courses as required.
At Ninety Nines, they have a team of dedicated QFI Instructors to offer students top quality training.
