Prior to this Aircraft, AMREF Flying Doctors was relying on its 2 A Pilatus 12 (PC XII) aircraft’s for emergency evacuations since 2016 which are single-engine turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft’s. Now with the new Citation XLS which has a remarkable performance efficiency, comfort and ease with space to look after patients on air, AMREF Flying Doctors should be able to take better control of their aero-medical patients transports services while improving their bottom line
