BAFA - Meet Bafa
Ben-Air Flight Academy (BAFA) is a flight school recognized by the Belgian and European governments. Airline Transport Pilots, Professional Pilots and Private Pilots are all trained at BAFA. The recognition as a “Flight Training Organisation” (FTO) according to the international JAR regulations, and the instruction of the trainees by a team of highly professional flight and theory instructors guarantees that the training provided meets the highest of quality standards.
BAFA combines over 30 years of experience in training professional pilots with a modern, dynamic and professional approach. As a result, BAFA has grown to become the most important Training Organisation on the Belgian market. The many former BAFA trainees who have in the meantime developed careers as commercial aviation pilots are now employed by all the Belgian airline companies and many foreign ones, including Brussels Airlines, DHL, Jetair Fly, Thomas Cook, TNT, City Jet, Ryanair, Easy Jet, KLM, Tyrolean, Flying Group, ASL and others.
BAFA is established at Antwerp Airport, where the school has a modern infrastructure with well-equipped theory classrooms and a modern aircraft fleet.
Besides training to become an Airline Transport Pilot, Professional Pilot or Private Pilot, at BAFA you can also follow additional courses such as Instructor (FI), Instrument Rating (IR), Multi-Engine Aircraft (ME) and Multi Crew Coordination (MCC)
As a centre of competence in aviation, BAFA is regularly asked by third parties or by the authorities to organise tailor-made training.
BAFA is also the publisher of a “Distance Learning” theory course and associated course books for Private Pilots. These books are the ultimate reference material in Flanders, being used by just about all flying clubs as the basis for their theory courses for Private Pilots.
