Stellenbosch Flight Academy – Commercial Case Study – Solar Leave a comment

The Stellenbosch Flight Academy based at the Stellenbosch Airfield is an aviation training institution that provides advanced pilot training. At the heart of the training facility is a highly-sophisticated, state-of-the-art flight simulation training device, also known as a simulator.

“We evaluated many options, but the option finally selected from Ellies gave us the best technical solution at an affordable price. The installation was done very neatly and professionally and I am very happy and satisfied with the overall service experience provided by Ellies. Since the installation in June, we have not suffered service disruptions due to electrical supply issues. This has drastically improved our service offering to our customers and also ensures that our very expensive training simulator is now better protected against surges.”
