The East African Civil Aviation Academy | Soroti Flying School is located on over 500 acres of land. It was built within Soroti Town and is about 400 metres ride or walk away from the taxi and bus parks. Both the town and the academy present an atmosphere of serenity that is enhanced by the flatness of the terrain. On a clear morning, one may glimpse a mountain peak 70 km (straight-line distance) away in Mbale District. The weather varies between extreme heat (temperature readings up to 40ºC) and mild thunderstorms. The Government’s Department of Meteorology also maintains a fully equipped weather station at Soroti Airport.

The East African Civil Aviation Academy | Soroti Flying School has 108 fully furnished rooms. To maintain international standards, each room accommodates 1 cadet. The 2 dormitory blocks include adequate screened shower booths (making the rooms suitable for both male and female cadets), 2 rest lounges (each fitted with digital satellite TV and a video deck).

Modern catering services are provided by a fully equipped kitchen, offering a fully balanced diet of 5 meals a day. Again, to maintain international aviation training requirements, the diet is high on animal protein, which makes up nearly 80% of the weekly diet! A student may select from a variety of recreational activities including football, basketball, volleyball, lawn and table tennis, swimming and others. A recreation hall with a seating capacity of 500 sometimes hosts public lectures, seminars, workshops and other entertainment events.
