Every day thousands of professionals in Africa contribute to making commercial aviation the safest form of transportation. The aviation industry depends on these people. African aviation safety works! The Friends of Aviassist Foundation works with Friends and Corporate Friends of AviAssist to keep it that way.

We support the AviAssist Foundation’s ability to:

  • Lead, build and support safety promotion in African aviation
  • Support African safety champions (“Cheetahs”)
  • Improve aviation safety in Africa


Friends of AviAssist assist the AviAssist Foundation in recruiting professional volunteers & business partners from the Netherlands, Europe and beyond to support the work of the AviAssist Foundation. It raises funds for grants to the AviAssist Foundation in support of its programs. It provides network opportunities for private and corporate Friends to support career and business development in African aviation.

The AviAssist Foundation (www.aviassist.org) is an independent, international, and impartial non-profit that exists to champion the cause of aviation safety in Africa.

As a non-profit organisation, it provides safety guidance & resources through training courses, social media and Africa’s only dedicated safety promotion magazine – SafetyFocus. On top of that, the Foundation’s Safety in African Aviation conference provides Africa’s only neutral ground for competitors and regulators to meet and address safety issues.
