Kenya School of Flying

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.
