"Stop Dreaming, Start Flying"


Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our studnets and clients say:

“Back in April 2017 I had this crazy idea to start flying Powered Power Gliders. On referral form a good friend of mine I contacted Riaan Struwig of epic aviation and setup a meeting. The service I got from Riaan and the information he imparted to me really won me over. Riaan really helped me every step of the way, guiding me in which motor to get, what wing will work for me and even let me use some of the school’s equipment just to get a feel for what I was getting myself into.

The facilities at Epic aviation and the field is excellent. The shop and onsite workshop is definitely a bonus as break downs on my motor was dealt with swiftly.

I would definitely recommend Epic Aviation to anyone wanting to start in this awesome sport of ours. 

May the Sky be our Playground. “

Student 2017

I have known Riaan since 2004 when I was still training pilots under my Old school Flying Unlimited. Riaan became a student and then friend then business partner. Over time the two of us created and maintained the largest Flying, manufacturing School for PPG and trike type aircraft in South Africa. Over time we established and built many different PPG and Trikes. I left South Africa for 3 years and on returning started training under Riaan School ATO with him. We have been part of a few projects together for the betterment of the sport and have made significant changes to the industry. Epic Aviation and Paramotor SA will be going along way in SA so if you want to be trained or receive additional advanced coaching who better to start with than with the Highest rated instructors in SA, Grade A's.
