Africair is the largest Cessna Aircraft Company distributor in the world. As Cessna’s exclusive Authorized Sales Representative for 48 countries in and around Africa, we distribute the entire Cessna product line, from the Cessna single engine piston Skyhawk to the fastest general aviation aircraft in the world, the Citation X+. Cessna has manufactured more general aviation aircraft than any other company, and is recognized as the industry leader in safety, reliability, performance and innovation. In addition to selling new and used Cessna aircraft, we provide spare parts, product support, warranty administration, maintenance and technical support, and training coordination for Cessna aircraft owners and operators.
We are also the Independent Representative for Bell Helicopter/Textron, Inc. for 33 countries in and around Africa. Bell Helicopter is the premier manufacturer of light to medium size helicopters in the world and produces a full line of single and twin engine helicopters. Bell helicopters are world renowned for their rugged durability, reliability and safety. We provide configuration and completion coordination for our customers utilizing a number of high quality completion facilities.
As the distributor for Cessna aircraft and Bell helicopters in our assigned territories, we have a large, loyal customer base of private individuals and commercial operators, including cargo haulers, charter companies, passenger airlines, and companies supporting the exploration and production activities of major oil and mining companies throughout Africa. In addition, we specialize in supplying aircraft, helicopters, parts, maintenance support, technical support and training coordination to militaries, police organizations and other governmental agencies, including the Kenya Police Air Wing, Kenya Power & Lighting Company, Kenya Wildlife Service, Tanzania Wildlife Service, Tanzania National Parks, Libyan Air Ambulance, Royal Moroccan Air Force, ENNA (Algeria), Nigerian Police Air Wing, Nigerian Customs Service, East African Civil Aviation Authority, Nigerian Pipeline, and others.
We also specialize in providing fixed wing aircraft and helicopters to fulfill special mission operations such as Search & Rescue, Border Patrol & Surveillance, Medical Evacuation, Flight Inspection Calibration, Flight Training, Aerial Photography & Surveying, Pipeline Patrol, and many other applications. Our company will act as the project coordinator/integrator to ensure that all special mission modifications to your fixed wing aircraft or helicopter are completed in a timely and professional manner.
In addition to Cessna and Bell products, we provide spare parts and product support for Piper, Beechcraft, Fairchild, DeHavilland, Bombardier, and other general aviation aircraft, and are authorized distributors for Honeywell (Bendix/King) Avionics, Garmin, Pratt & Whitney, Thielert, Continental Motors and other manufacturers. As a result, we are able to support the varied demands of the modern aircraft operator, who frequently operates both fixed and rotor-wing aircraft of various types and models.
We also sell and broker used aircraft; lease aircraft; process overhauls; and provide assistance in arranging financing and insurance.
Over the last half century, we have owned and operated fixed base operations, charter operations, and maintenance facilities in Africa. We operated a fixed wing charter service in Kenya for many years. We also operated a fleet of Cessna aircraft and Bell helicopters that provided transportation for a major oil company and other commercial customers in Nigeria for over thirty-five years. Our experience from these varied operations has given us a thorough understanding of the nature of aviation operations in Africa, which in turn enables us to anticipate the needs and concerns of our customers.
Our company is headquartered in Miami, Florida (USA) where we operate a modern distribution center. Our U.S. base greatly enhances our ability to coordinate shipments from various vendors and, with respect to aircraft sales, enables us to oversee the pre-delivery process to ensure that our customer’s requirements are met. Our product support division is world class. We currently support hundreds of aircraft and helicopters in Africa and are very familiar with the applicable importation and customs regulations, as well as the best methods of shipment to each country.
The newest addition to the Africair/TAD Group is Tropicars, an authorized distributor of E-Z-GO, Cushman, Polaris, Segway, Jacobsen Turf Equipment and Garia golf cars, recreational and utility vehicles.
