Training Aircraft

We have acquired a brand new Dova DV-1 Skylark that we will use as a primary trainer. We also will acquire a Cessna 172 RG for advanced training to fulfil the PPL and higher licence requirements. We will continue to grow our fleet to meet our student demands.

The Cessna 150 is a two-seater fuel-efficient and reliable light aircraft. Being the fifth most-produced civilian aeroplane in human history, learning to fly in a Cessna 150 means you have many chances of finding a C150 in most places thus can start flying right away without the hustle of another 5 hours or more training to convert to type. We acquired the C150 in May 2020 on a temporary lease locally and is available for Private Pilot Licence flight training in Lilongwe.

Uses Training

The Dova DV-1 Skylark is a fuel-efficient and reliable light aircraft which we have assigned for primary flight training and hour building. Being a low-wing aircraft design, this is a perfect training platform for the beginning pilot operating in VMC conditions. Packed with many unique features, it is ideal for the hot Malawi climate as it is dual cooled. Most importantly, the bubble canopy brings added visibility which is a plus for the beginning pilot.

“Our promise to our students at Eastrise Aviation is that we will never bring tired or obsolete aircraft into our fleet just to make those additional dollars”

Ian C Maliseni, Founder & CEO

We are at an advanced stage of negotiations to acquire this Cessna 177B (Cardinal) from South Africa. It is a low-time aircraft, nicely maintained by the owner and looks almost new. The aircraft has a constant speed propeller and is a good complex aircraft trainer and a cross-country machine.
