Founded in 1989 by two Licensed Aircraft Engineers, Blue Bird Aviation is one of Sudan's best-established general aviation service companies.
From humble beginnings in the early 90s, Blue Bird Aviation was gaining the respect of aviation professionals in the Sudan for its excellent level of service with respect to light aircraft maintenance. From success to another, Blue Bird Aviation was setting new standards of service within the aviation industry as an approved AMO (Aircraft Maintenance Organisation) by the Sudan Civil Aviation Authority.
With the influx of foreign registered light aircraft into the Sudan for humanitarian aid operations; Blue Bird, now a complete maintenance operation, had become the leading provider of scheduled and line maintenance for those aircraft within the Sudan. Since, the majority of those aircraft had South African registration; Blue Bird Aviation achieved accreditation from the South African Civil Aviation Authority as an approved AMO, becoming the only private company in Sudan with a license to maintain foreign registered aircraft by the mid 90s.
The dawn of the new millennium saw Blue Bird Aviation expand both horizontally and vertically in terms of its services. As the maintenance operation continued to grow, Blue Bird Aviation added aircraft ground handling services to provide a more comprehensive solution to its clients.
During the days when Sudan entered the oil production era and the signing of the Sudanese Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), Blue Bird was there to witness the expansion of the aviation industry. In a large developing country with a modest road network infrastructure, light aircraft transport provided the best means of transport to cover the vast areas of land in Sudan. As such, Blue Bird took a corporate decision to start its own flight operations service to provide air transport services. The company now operates a Fokker 50 and De Havilland Twin Otter DHC-6. The aircraft operated by Blue Bird Aviation in the past also include the Bombardier Dash 8, Beech 1900 and Beech King Air 200.
Blue Bird Aviation's mission is to continuously improve its air service through achieving the highest standards in aviation just as the Concorde (used in Blue Bird’s logo) once did for the elite air travellers.
