Rand Flight Academy update
In 2008, a spate of light air crashes saw intense scrutiny on the local aviation industry. This year Carte Blanche revealed three of the crashes involved pilots from one school - the Rand Flight Academy - owned by trainer and pilot, Tas Vouros. Our investigations exposed the academy's questionable pilot license issuing. Once a hive of activity, the academy, based at the Rand Airport in Germiston, has been closed by the Civil Aviation Authority.
