Flying Medical Service
Flying Medical Service is a strictly non-profit, volunteer organization, which provides regular preventative, curative and health-related education services. We also do air transport for medical emergencies.
We have been based at Arusha airport since 1983. We operate two specially equipped Cessna 206 aircraft.
FMS provides medical transport for people throughout Tanzania regardless of religion affiliation, ethnic background or ability to pay immediately. We work in remote areas that are far from regular health care facilities.
We try to be affordable and sustainable.
FMS has full-time staff volunteers who are pilots, one is a doctor. The government of Tanzania has granted us important exemptions. This helps us to provide our service as affordably as possible for the average Tanzanian citizen.
Our work depends on donations.
