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
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.
