For a long time, the editor of this site has questioned the safety standards when flying with fly-540 but Don Smith, the proprietor of the airline tried to gag this site and stop us from informing Kenyans who deserve to know what that is happening.
We have done many stories questioning the company.
In February 2020, a Fly540 aircraft headed to Nairobi was forced to make an emergency landing in Lokichar, Turkana County after it developed mechanical problems. The incident that occurred at Kapese Airstrip was assumed to be a normal mechanical issue that can happen to any aircraft.
This is not the first fatal accident that the company had years back,
Fly540 Fokker F-27 plane crash
13th August 2008
Does the public know of this? this was hidden from the public and don smith employed one of the brothers to the deceased engineer as a cleaner now in the JKIA line to hide some truth. when you google this you will find some truth.
The second accident
There is an accident that happened at Wilson Airport on a test flight, to be simple on this the flight engineer had no chair, after the accident a chair was thrown at the scene of the accident to show that there was a chair for the engineer and it had come off, don smith dispatched large sum of cash to the accident scene through Aiden moh to pay reporters to leave the scene as this would destroy the image of the company. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20110127-0 was this reported? don smith has his ways, am afraid if the truth is not taken into account it will be hidden by this mafia.
The incident on JKIA 540 CRJ
Here we go again bad maintenance, a CRJ 100 main wheel got off from the aircraft as it was taxing, the crew were notified of this by a Jambo Jet Aircraft that was taxing behind, was the company held responsible for this? again this was hidden till a disaster for 5Y-CAC. short cuts are how to define 540/SAX
The major 5Y-BXD CRJ 100
Why this, one of its engine was consuming a lot of oil, after every flight, to simplify a crj aircraft should consume an average of 2 quarts per day depending on flight as well, well the engineers in this airline wrote emails, hand over books on how this engine was unsafe for flight, what did the company do? money first, let it fly, the airline was very aware of how dangerous this was but they never took any caution.
The engine failed at flight on its way to juba, it came back with one engine and landed in JKIA, please note this failure would have been avoided. this would have cost lives like 5Y-CAC, so you can imagine all those systems that were not working on 5y-CAC.
one big question is how this aircraft left JKIA to Wilson with a faulty engine, some crazy pilot was paid handsomely to take it to Wilson Airport.
But an audit report leaked to us confirms what we have always said: There has been consistent, intentional shoddy aircraft maintenance job was done on some aircraft (5Y-RJS) with the full knowledge of KCAA officials that are under the payroll of Don Smith to allow his flying coffins to operate.
The audit report confirms that work was done on an aircraft but was not completed but a certificate of release to service was issued.
It is also interesting to note that the company has wazungus without work permits who do all the shortcuts for CEO Don Smith who gives immigration officials monthly bribes to look the other way. Most tasks not done are engine tasks.
We have attached part of the audit.
