ABOUT AAT (Fiji) Ltd

Advance Aviation Training (Fiji) Ltd was founded in 2002 by Wayne & Deborah Hinton and is now a well established school offering modern facilities with up-to-date training aids and equipment. A.A.T. consists of two locations based at Nadi International Airport.

We are:

“We are the leading provider of Professional Pilot Training in Fiji and set the standard for flight training in the Pacific.”

Our new DCX Max Pro-motion and the Elite PI-158 Synthetic Flight Trainer are fully approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji for use in Instrument Rating Training.

Another training aid we use is computer-based Virtual Training Systems (VTS) to assist the student to understand various systems and procedures they will encounter during their training.

The school’s primary training aircraft are Cessna 150’s and Cessna 172’s which are single engine advanced trainers and the minimum requirement for a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) flight test in Fiji. The Partenavia P68B is used for our Multi-engine training.

At A.A.T. our emphasis is on providing highly qualified instructors who have available to them a high standard of training aids, equipment and technical publications. Further, we plan to be pro-active in establishing new growth in the Aviation sector to create new jobs for our graduating pilots.
