Where it all started

Conservative in its setup, the business was brought to life by its owner,  Jannie Du Toit, who shares an unrivalled passion for flight training and all things aviation. His greatest motivation is to provide his clients with the same absolute love for flying.

Situated in the beautiful Overberg region of the Western Cape, you are guaranteed magnificent views and stunning natural scenery. Swellendam will provide you with a Mediterranean climate, rewarding our aviators with fantastic flying weather.

Swellengrebel Airfield is home to Heritage Aviation and has one South Africa’s oldest flying clubs. The field was used in the Second World War as an emergency base for sea patrol aircraft. In 1958 it was brought back to life by an aviation enthusiast. We are proud to be associated with this rich history!

Safety is paramount at Heritage Aviation; we spare no expense in making sure that you have an unparalleled safe environment to complete your training in. Our aircraft are meticulously maintained and always ready to take you to the clouds.

Making the decision to become a pilot is an exciting move. Our admissions experts are here to help guide you each step of the way and will assist you to accomplish your goal from a-z with the friendliest and most helpful service around.
