Facilities at AAA
We chose our aircraft after much deliberation.
For any business to flourish, the tools of the trade must be fit for purpose, reliable, easy to maintain, cost effective, have a long service life.
Any break in this chain leads to increased costs – costs that are frequently passed on to the client.
AAA is a forward looking company. We are here for the long haul. We are also acutely aware of the global economic pressures that Flight Training Organisations and Airlines are under. Training pilots is not cheap.
However, unserviceable aircraft or expensive maintenance is hardly the responsibility of our clients.
Consequently, a Flight Training Organisation has a duty to provide reliable and cost effective training to the highest standards attainable. Its fleet must have low operating costs, withstand the rigours of a training regime and spare parts must be readily available, both now and in the foreseeable future.
You will see that our aircraft are resplendent in the AAA livery. The appearance is no coincidence. It reflects our entire approach to the training of pilots for our customers.
Cessna 172RG Cutlass
More Cessna 172s have been produced, than any other aircraft! In fact, over 43,000 units are flying worldwide – and the production line is still churning them out! Although a perfect touring aircraft, many are used as trainers – including air forces in the Far and Middle East and Europe.
This version of the 172, whilst similar to the basic 172 in many respects, introduces students to the “complex type” aircraft, namely the constant-speed propeller and retractable landing gear.
For pilots progressing toward a CPL/ATPL license, the multi-engine rating requires a still more complex aircraft:
