Initially created in 1997 as a subsidiary of humanitarian nonprofit organization Air Serv International, Air Serv Limited began as a small operations and maintenance base for flight programs in Africa. As the need for reputable and reliable aviation services in East Africa increased, we recognized a niche which needed to be filled. Expanding our training program and facilities, we widened the range of services we had to offer to create a comprehensive and highly specialized product for businesses and organizations operating in difficult environments. With a focus on safety, we provide our staff with the highest quality of training and meet the strictest levels of operating standards to serve our clients and partners.

In addition to our Ugandan and U.S. FAA-certified maintenance division, Air Serv has recently received a South African Maintenance certification, enabling us to offer a broader range of services to a wider clientele. The past two decades have seen us grow into one of the largest and most trusted aviation facilities in Uganda, providing air charter services, aircraft maintenance, consulting, logistical planning, and hangar facilities from our headquarters in Entebbe, Uganda. We aim to continue that growth as the aviation industry evolves, keeping abreast of the latest technology, innovations, and breakthroughs.

In the coming years, Air Serv Limited plans to not only grow and vary our existing fleet but also to become the first full service FBO (fixed based operator) facility at Entebbe Airport, meeting all private aviation requirements and needs. As our focus remains on our humanitarian beginnings, we foresee a future unlimited in providing support and services to the humanitarian responders for both sudden onset emergencies and longer-term humanitarian events.

Above all else, Air Serv remains committed to safety on all levels from ground to air. In addition to orientation and ground school classes, every member of our staff completes required training through Air Serv University which provides online learning and professional development to increase understanding of safety and operations within the aviation industry. All pilots and engineers also complete International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)-required safety training programs in addition to their basic training.

Air Serv Limited is proud to be part of the Flight Safety Foundation, which runs the Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) program. All manufacturer required and recommended inspections are completed onsite by our FAA and CAA licensed engineers, and governed by our complete CAA approved maintenance manuals as well as manufacturer's maintenance quidelines. In addition to standard internal audits, Air Serv Limited submits to annual safety audits conducted by the Civil Aviation Authority, the United Nations World Food Program, and Buena Veritas.


The use of light aircraft in emergencies has been common in Africa, especially in humanitarian response efforts over the last several decades. Smaller, high performance “bush aircraft” provide access and sustainability for thousands of relief workers, government officials, media, and development personnel wherever war and terrain isolate people in need of assistance. They have also provided urgent airlift capability where short, unimproved, or unpaved airstrips restrict large transport aircraft.

Air Serv Limited currently operates a fleet of five Cessna Caravans, all of which are wholly owned by nonprofit organization Air Serv International. As a flexible aircraft, lightweight and adaptable to various environments, the Caravan is an ideal solution to meet the requirements of Air Serv Programs.

In addition to our wholly owned aircraft, Air Serv has the ability to source and operate a variety of aircraft from heavy-lift to helicopters as client needs dictate.
