Emergency flights

We have regular radio contact with our pilots and with hospitals. We advise on the most appropriate facility for the patient’s problem. We have a doctor available. We do not request payment guarantees, but we appreciate a contribution towards the cost of the flight.

Preventive and curative health care

We fly a regular, two-week schedule to 27 airstrips to vaccinate and treat people as close as possible to their home within and around Arusha and Manyara Region. We evacuate very sick patients to the nearest hospital. Communities maintain their own airstrips.

FMS provides transport for visiting medical specialists and paramedical staff

The aim of this outreach is to assist medical professionals with on-the-job exchange of views and updates on medical practice.
