What We Stand For

Our Phoenix logo symbolizes what we stand for at Get-Wings International. A mythical bird rising from the ashes.

Get-Wings International started in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the aviation industry was at its lowest point, but like our mythical bird, we have risen from the ashes, and we are on a mission to give student pilots in South Africa and worldwide a flight training experience they could only dream of before us!

After many years of flight instruction and helping South African student pilots to complete their flight training in Cape Town, South Africa, Januss and Lubbi (our founders) realized that the aviation market was looking for something more than just flight training. Students want to enjoy a journey, not just race to the finish line!

This was when Get-Wings International was born.

We are here to revolutionize flight training and to operate on a level of excellence which no student pilot has ever seen. We are here to revolutionize flight training and offer an experience like no other!

Founders of Get-Wings International, Januss and Lubbi


Flight schools worldwide, including in South Africa, seem to have forgotten about the basics - that your students are your clients, not your students. You are supposed to look after them, nurture them, help them, treat them with respect, guide them and mentor them. You should always go the extra mile for them! They are your most valuable resource!

Flight training has become extremely expensive, the journey has become difficult and the mistakes that students make costs them a lot of unnecessary money. The problem is you don’t know what you don’t know, until someone shows you a better, faster and more efficient way of doing something!

That’s why we are here!

Get-Wings International was born to assist student pilots from South Africa and Europe to complete their flight training faster and for less, as well as being able to achieve both a SACAA and EASA frozen ATPL at the same time… Yes - that’s 2 licenses at once! With the emphasis on quality training, good structure, lots of transparency and FUN, working with us is something you could only dream of… until now!

We are not scared to say that there is no flight school in the world that can compete with what we have to offer, and we are proud of this. We are the leaders, not the followers. We make sure to do everything one step above everyone else!

Our Priority?
our customer.

Get on board with us and allow us to take you to a completely new level of flight training and customer service!
