Before establishing Kuki, I was an instructor with experience working for UK and USA helicopter flight training schools. I quickly realised that there may be a need for a training company with a fresh, no-nonsense and much friendlier approach! I wanted to share my enthusiasm for flying heli’s and airplanes in a relaxed and friendly environment.
So, I created Kuki in November 1997 and an environment where people could be relaxed and not judged, enjoy their down-time and in which I could help nurture and fulfil their flying dreams.
In the beginning there was just me and one R22 Helicopter. Now Kuki has been operational for 23 years and in that time we have flown over 20,000hrs, we have a 100% pass rate and more importantly a zero accident or incident safety record, not only at Kuki but also all the students that we have taught and have gone on to fly for pleasure or a career. We steadily evolved into the dedicated team and fleet of aircraft that we have today, encompassing and providing “Everything to do with Flight Training and Aviation”.
