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.
