Everett Aviation started business in Kenya in 1997and was then the only commercial helicopter operator. Its principal clients were tourists, filming companies and business people that wished to move around remote locations in East Africa. Since the beginning, Everett Aviation has invested in equipment, training, safety and quality such that it could respond to the demands of the market. This enabled Everett to move beyond basic passenger transport. It invested in Night Vision capability, twin-engine helicopters, ISO certification, SMS and HSEC systems, helicopter on-board monitoring systems, Forward Looking Infra-Red (FLIR) for security work, real-time internet based GPS tracking systems, off-shore helicopters and more recently equipment to protect helicopters from missile and ballistic threats.
This investment and development has meant that Everett Aviation is able to offer night-time Medevac services, off-shore services to international operators working in the Indian Ocean, under-slung services to large mining concerns working in remote locations around the African Continent and the secure movement of passengers around trouble spots such as I.raq and Somalia
Everett Aviation continues in its investment and efforts to improve its quality, safety and services to clients and to develop new and expanded services to meet the needs of the market. Only by doing so will it retain and develop its relationship with its existing clients and win new clients while maintaining its position as the leading East African helicopter operator.
