Meet your LIGHT FLIGHT instructor

Geoff Dyer

Grade "A" Instructor on Light sport aircraft and CFI for Light Flight.

His flying background stems from hang gliding when it first came to South Africa in 1974. In 1987 Geoff bought his first Windlass Trike while he was a game ranger in Botswana. Not long after, he moved to Durban and began teaching people to fly trikes.

In October 1988 Geoff started Light Flight Flying Services, a full time flight training organisation based in Cato Ridge airfield. Three years later, Geoff bought a 200 acre farm in Cato Ridge and named it Light Flight Farm. A runway 500 meters long was cleared, a 12 by 24 meter hangar erected and the flying school moved to the farm. Geoff’s dream of a full time flying school complimented by eco friendly farming activities was becoming a reality.

Besides flying, the main thrust at Light Flight Farm has been to restore the original grasslands. To date about 30 acres of invasive alien vegetation in the form of lantana and bugweed have been cleared and indigenous grassland reclaimed. Wildlife is encouraged and a herd of indigenous Nguni cattle established. In May 2004, the Killarney Valley Conservancy was formed with Light Flight Farm as the Northern boundary.

Light Flight has seven hangars that can accommodate up to 40 microlights and Light Sport Aircraft.

Geoff Dyer's flying hours have passed 8400 with over 7000 hours of flying instruction. In 1996 he began teaching on three axis microlights and in 1998 began instructing on Jabirus, the first of the Light Sport Aircraft in South Africa.

Geoff holds Civil Aviation Authority Aviation Training Organisation number CAA/0083, which authorises Light Flight to train students and instructors on all types of microlights and Light Sport Aircraft.
