Our Equipment and Facilities
Full Motion Flight Simulator
The Kenya School of Flying is the first aviation school in Africa to acquire the state of art Redbird FMX twin-engine, full motion and full vision simulator.
It allows students to gain valuable training and experience at less than half the cost of the equivalent training in a twin-engine aircraft.
The Kenya School of Flying has a dedicated fleet of 21 training aircraft and growing, the largest in Kenya. They include the following:
A two-seat, single-engine, high-wing aircraft. Designed specifically for flight training and personal use.
A two-seat, single-engine, high-wing aircraft. It has greater engine power than the Cessna 150, and is another training workhorse.
A four-seat, single-engine, high-wing aircraft. Introduced in 1956 and with more than 60 000 built, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history
A four-seat, single-engine, low-wing aircraft. Popular with private owners and flying clubs, with over 32 000 delivered.
A six-seat, single-engine, high-wing aircraft. The ubiquitous bush plane used extensively throughout Africa.
Cessna 208 Caravan
A ten-seat, single-engine, high-wing aircraft. A regular sight at all Kenyan airstrips, used widely for passenger and small cargo transfers.
Piper PA-34 Seneca II
A six-seat, twin-engine, low-wing aircraft. Popular with charter companies and private companies.
