Probably one of the biggest achievements of Abyssinian Flight Service’s existence is our establishing the first private Pilot Training school in Ethiopia. We have trained and graduated several pilots with both PPL (Private Pilot License) and CPL (Commercial Pilot License) with MR(Multi-Engine Ratings).
Currently we operate 6 Thielert engine equipped Cessna 172s, 2 Diamond DA40 single engine and 2 Diamond DA42NG Multi-Engine aircraft in our flight training school. What makes these aircraft special is the fact that they operate on the less expensive and readily available Jet A1 fuel while consuming less than 50% compared to the same size AvGas engines.
Recently we added DIA Austro engine equipped Twin Diamond DA42NG aircraft to our fleet for use in Multi-engine training. The state-of-the-art Garmin G1000 DA42NG Glass Cockpit and its single engine siblings are all fully equipped with the latest instrument to train our student pilots to the highest standards of professionalism.
The Pilot Training School uses Cessna 172s, Diamond DA40 single engine aircraft and Diamond DA42 Twin star for multi-engine rating as well as the state of the art DA40 Diamond flight simulator.
