Sky Flight training is the first flight academy in Africa introducing the STEAM program to high school students.

By enrolling into the STEAM program we use flying training and scenario based exercises to incorporate Science Technology Engineering Aerodynamics and Mathematics as the core motivation for flying in motion.

As many aviation employees reach retirement age and the growth of aviation world wide, tremendous opportunity exists for today’s students. However, often these students lack awareness of aviation as a career path. As a result, we are committed to educational outreach to our younger generation through our STEAM program
