AIM AIR: Missionary Flight Services

Since 1975, AIM AIR has been providing aviation support to Christian individuals and organizations in Eastern and Central Africa. The team, made up of missionary mechanics, avionics technicians, pilots, administrative personnel, and qualified Kenyan staff, operates and maintains a small fleet of Cessna Caravans (seating up to 12 passengers) and Cessna 206s (seating up to 5 passengers).

The Gospel of Matthew 5:13 begins by saying, ‘You are the salt of the earth,’ which is the inspiration for our catchphrase, ‘Hauling Salt.’ We are passionate about getting missionaries, the salt of the earth, into the faraway places that need the gospel the most.

Our two main airbases are located in Nairobi, Kenya and Arua, Uganda. From those airbases, we can safely fly you to nearly every location in eastern and central Africa.
