Posted 11 September 2013 · 1 Comment

Kilimanjaro Aviation Logistics Centre (KALC), an affiliate of Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., based in Mwanza, Tanzania, has enhanced its landing permit and overflight permit support services for business aviation operators for all 56 African nations.

Led by general manager Stanley Joseph, the multilingual KALC team utilises local expertise and a continent-wide network of proven suppliers to provide the correct landing and overflight permits, clearances, slot management, navigation fees, and permissions in compliance with all international laws and regulations.
“We recognize that operating in Africa can be challenging, as each of the continent’s 56 countries are bound by subtly different aviation regulations which can change at any time,” said Jonathan Howells, Universal’s regional vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, . “Stanley and his team are on the ground in Africa and have the contacts and expertise to help operators successfully navigate those challenges.”
KALC recently launched a new website,, that allows operators to review a detailed directory of the permit requirements of each African country and request permits online.
“Regardless the size of your aircraft or type of operation, we are here to support operators travelling over or within Africa, from corporate charter, to cargo flights, medical evacuations and emergency relief flights,” said Joseph. “And you can be assured that all services we provide will enable you to be fully-compliant with local aviation regulations.”

Being out of touch for such a long time,it is wonderfull to see any activity coming up on this location.
