Phoenix acquires new plane in Kenya

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 19 – Phoenix Aviation Limited has acquired a Beechcraft King Air 350 twin engined turbo prop aircraft which will strengthen the Company’s charter and air ambulance services.

The aircraft is one of the very latest versions in the tried and tested King Air range. It cruises at 300 mph at an altitude of 35,000 feet and has a range of 1,600 miles.

There are eight luxury seats in double club configuration and another seat for a flight attendant. When used for medical evacuations the King Air 350 has the capacity for two patients who are cared for by an ICU qualified flight nurse and a doctor using state of the art support equipment.

Sati Reel, the Managing Director of Phoenix Aviation Limited, said, “This aircraft has comprehensive instrumentation including weather radar. The King Air 350 is ideal for conditions in East and Central Africa and can be flown in and out of 1,200 metre unpaved airstrips.”

“We now have a fleet of three Cessna Caravan single engined aircraft, four Beechcraft King Air twin turbo prop aircraft and four Cessna Citation Bravo twin jets. In addition, we operate a Eurocopter with the capacity for five passengers.”

Phoenix Aviation also runs a repair and maintenance facility at Wilson Airport.

“This looks after the company’s fleet and provides services for the owners and operators of light aircraft within the East African region under the approval from the authorities in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda,” he added.
