CASHMERE AVIATION, together with Henley Air,
provides a Helicopter Emergency Medical
Service (HEMS) operating from Kimberley
Airport (FAKM) in the Northern Cape province
of South Africa.
Using the Bell 222ut as the HEMS platform,
we provide the industry with twin engine
safety, internal space and long-range
capabilities, in excess of 320 nautical
miles thus making remote areas of the
Northern Cape province accessible to HEMS.
Pilots conform to six-monthly OPCs, annual
line checks and licence revalidations, along
with a further requirement for IFR rated
pilots to comply with 90-day recency
Our HEMS operations are SACAA approved for
NVG night flying operations. Not only has
this improved the safety of night flight
operation but it has also increased the
number of night flights that we can provide
as a service.
