Paul Smith Top Story

Everett Aviation is East Africa's leading provider of safe and solution-oriented fixed- and rotary-wing aviation services, serving international clients from the energy sector and other government, commercial, and VIP organizations with mission-critical or specialized aviation needs 

With experience spanning the African continent and beyond, Everett provides an agile fleet of well-equipped aircraft and innovative, flexible, and value-enhancing solutions to clients' aviation need in an unrivalled headquarters facility in Tanzania.

Whether requiring offshore or onshore crew transportation, search and rescue, medevac, external load, aerial survey, or VIP transportation, Everett is ready to support with safe, efficient, and customer-focused service.

Everett Aviation started business operating a single Eurocopter AS350 in Kenya in 1996. In less than 20 years, the company has become established as the largest helicopter service provider in East Africa, holding air operator certificates in Kenya, Tanzania, and Mozambique. 

Since the beginning, Everett Aviation has led the market by investing in modern facilities, equipment, training, and safety systems, including:

  • Twin-engine helicopters to enhance flight safety
  • A helicopter fleet equipped with satellite-based tracking equipment with email and telephone facilities
  • ISO certification for its management processes and development of a safety management system (SMS)
  • Helicopter on-board monitoring systems, such as health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS) and united medical solutions (UMS)
  • Forward-looking infra-red (FLIR) for security work
  • Real-time Internet-based GPS tracking systems.

More recently, Everett invested in equipment to protect helicopters from missile and ballistic threats when operating humanitarian missions in troubled regions, and in fleet upgrades to cater to the developing energy sector in East Africa. This investment has meant that Everett Aviation now offers an unrivaled range of safe and solution-oriented aviation services.

Everett Aviation's mission is to continue expanding and focusing investments to improve safety, quality, and measurable value to its clients, while developing innovative and efficient services to meet the needs of an ever-changing market. 

Safety is Everett's priority and No. 1 core value, and its SMS meets the requirements of the energy sector's oil and gas production standards and is accredited to ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004, and ISO18001:2007.

The company's SMS is built around a strong safety culture within which risk management, safety intervention, structured management review, processes, controls, self-learning, and continuous improvement are all key elements.

Everett's SMS has been demonstrated to meet the standards laid down by numerous international oil companies, many of whom require the company to demonstrate a mature SMS that meets EASA standards. The system is supported by a computer-based event and risk management tool called PRISM.
