History of Yellow Wings
Founded by Christian Strebel, a Swiss national who is an aircraft engineer and commercial pilot. He holds a flight instructor licence as well, with extensive experience from the age of 16. He started flying with his Piper Super Cub across all bush airfields and airports within East Africa from 1987.
Incorporating Yellow Wings Air Services in 1996 and receiving the first Air Operators Certificate with the 2 seater SuperCub in 1998. After initially flying sales people of agro-chemical companies to remote farms, business soon evolved into charter and passenger transport . With flights now across a much larger region, there was need for a larger and faster aircraft fleet.
In April 1998, Yellow Wings acquired a 4 seater C182 and in 2003 went on to acquire its first of two piston powered C206 aircraft.
With the a fleet of 4 piston airplanes from 2-6 seaters Yellow Wings spread its wings and expanded into the expansive commuter market
In 2010, the company ventured into turbine engine operations, acquiring its first Cessna 208 Grand Caravan brand new from the factory.
The venture was such a success, and in 2011 Yellow Wings added a second Cessna Caravan into its fleet now operating the mixed fleet of both turbine and piston powered aircraft.
With ever expanding market share in the tourist circuit Yellow Wings has become for many top end operators the charter company of choice, having flown political leaders , hollywood stars and royalties who require the highest standard.
In 2014 Yellow Wings was audited by an external company further ensuring that we do not only comply with the current regulation but exceed the safety and operation standards by far. 2014 was also the year that Yellow Wings started to conduct corporate and contract work further afield within the whole East Africa region and beyond.
