Experienced pilots, passionate about this country – its history, geography, people and wildlife, ensure that air charters are a journey to remember. All our pilots are First Aid trained, with specific focus on ‘first person on the scene’ medical response.
Tropic Air, by choice, operates the Eurocopter AS 350 B3. Its ability to fly in hot and dusty conditions, and its proven performance within high altitude environments (it has landed on the summit of Mount Everest) makes this the ultimate helicopter for Eastern Africa.
A decade ago, Tropic Air launched its helicopter division, providing a range of helicopter services throughout the eastern corner of Africa including Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. Tropic Air offers a broad range of helicopter services, from air charters and tailor-made helicopter safaris, to specialist missions and tasks. Support to aerial filming and photography is an area in which we are extremely experienced and proficient. We also support geo survey tasks and we are the first port of call for mountain rescue off Mount Kenya.
