Welcome to the Abyssinia Flight Services plc. 16 years have passed since Abyssinia Flight Services was formally launched as the First Certified Air Charter Company in Ethiopia. That was on April 1999. During the last 16 years, we have witnessed the impact we could make in the economic and social advancement of Ethiopia by making areas accessible that otherwise had no ground mode of transport let alone air service.
For years our service has proved to be a lifeline in response to the drought situation in the country transporting hundreds of aid workers and relief personnel to many parts of the affected areas of Ethiopia.
We have also been instrumental in transporting several potential investors to many parts of the country we also have the privilege to fly for companies engaged in oil exploration, geophysical survey, and aerial photography. We have been timely responding to our customers need for medical evacuation.
The services that we rendered and the positive impacts it is having on the promotion of the social and economic growth prompted us to establish and develop a much-needed private pilot training school and General aviation services in Ethiopia. The school was established in 2006.
Because there is only one flying school in the country which is mainly preoccupied with the training of company pilots, we felt the setting up of an affordable alternative private pilot training school was a big step towards the development of general aviation which is practically non existent in the country.
Today our dream has come true and we are happy to congratulate the fourth batch of pilot graduates from the First Private Pilot Training school in Ethiopia.
