Pilot Training

There are currently no flight schools in Guyana, so any pilot training would have to be done overseas.

    1. Air Traffic Control training is done by Guyana Civil Aviation Authority after you are hired as an Air Traffic Control Assistant.

  3. Hi everyone my name is Navin Cadogan I am just 15 years of age, bet I just love the marvelous engineering of plane and I want to some day became a pilot but I don’t know where to start. How can I become a pilot?

    1. Hello Navin, your age suggests that you are still in high school so I would recommend that you master both Maths and Physics as these would be important for your training ans career as a pilot. There are currently no flight schools in Guyana, so depending on your budget, you would have to choose either Trinidad or the USA to go do your flight training. There is the option of joining the Guyana Defence Force as a cadet officer and then selecting the Air Corps where they will train you to be a pilot.

  4. Hi my name is Nathan De Camp and i am 15 yrs old ,i have been fascinated by marvelous engineering that helicopters have . And ever since i was five yrs old i dreamt of becoming the pilot of one so it would be very good if I could get my licences . But first i would like to know ,”where the training would be done ,the cost of the training ,how long the training would take ,the subjects that i need to past in at CXC ,is there any specific age I would have to be ,how many examinations I would have to study for and if possible would i have to be recruited to do training ? These are questions that run through my head every time I think about myself as a beginner pilot sitting inside of the cockpit of a helicopter . So it would be great if you could enlighten me with the answers. Thank you.

    1. Nathan, there are no flight schools in Guyana. You will probably have to go to the USA for flight training. English, Math, Physics and Geography would be the most important subjects for pilot training. The minimum age for the issuance of a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) is 17 years. There are several exams that you will have to take as part of the training. Full pilot training can run anywhere between US$80,000 and US$120,000.

    1. In order to be recruited by GCAA, you need to look out for their advertisements and then make an application. They recruit personnel for the control tower at least once a year.
