Welcome to Deal Alliance Aviation Training

Deal Alliance Aviation Training is South Africa’s longest established training school providing dedicated theoretical training for private, commercial and airline pilots.



Although our training facility is situated at Cape Town International Airport, thus enabling pilots to attend our scheduled training courses close to their place of work, Deal Alliance can also arrange to have our facilitators and lecturers conduct bespoke training at the Operator’s own premises if this is more convenient.


Aviation Training

The training offered by Deal Alliance covers SA CAA certificated aviation courses:

Deal Alliance facilitators and lecturers are continually developing new courses in line with current aviation requirements.


Language Proficiency

Deal Alliance was the one of the first Aviation Language Proficiency Test Centers to be accredited by the South Africa Civil Aviation Authority. We test pilots and Air Traffic Controllers for their language competency levels, and can also provide bespoke Aviation English Training to assist the candidate to improve his or her level of English. This training is conducted by experienced pilots who are also CELTA qualified, thus providing the best possible environment for complete immersion in an aviation context whilst improving the standard of spoken English.


Training within Africa

Deal Alliance Aviation presents all ground training for individual training schools, as well as Commercial and Corporate Aviation companies both within and outside South Africa’s borders.


“I would highly recommend both the school and D Mann as an asset to any lecturing facility.”
Aldo Bezzicheri (Radio Aids Course, 2011)
“Debbie always went above and beyond to make sure that we understood the work and that we would pass, which often meant a lot of patience, individual attention and sacrifice on her part, which she would always give with a warm smile!”
Dustin Metcalfe (Commercial Pilot Ground School, 2011)
“All of the lectures were very well structured and I found all the lecturers to be very knowledgeable. Our class was of sufficient size to allow for class discussions, personal interaction, and to receive personal attention from the lecturers.”
Warrant Officer Miller, Pilot SAPS Air Wing, KZN (Commercial Pilot Ground School, 2009)
“I wrote nav yesterday, 89%, 1st time! Could not have managed it without your help! Thank you so much for the advise…”
Megan Kloppers (Commercial Pilot Ground School)
“Flight Training Adelaide is arguably one of the best aviation training colleges in the world pushing out well-trained pilots for arguably the best airlines in the world. Debby, your Deal Alliance is far superior to anything I have experienced here in ground school thus far. Your methodology, your experience, your in-depth explanations, the material you offer, the instructors you choose, the personal attention, the professionalism you endeavor to uphold are certainly superior.”
Warren Gedye, Cathay Pacific Cadet Program (Commercial Pilot Ground School)
