FMZ Fleet

At present FMZ has a fleet of 3 Cessna planes available to serve Zambia, all equipped with Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) kits, ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitters) and an on-line GPS tracking system called Spidertracks. All carry up to 5 passengers. Two are the Cessna 206 model, flying at around 120 knots. The other is a 210 model, flying faster at around 150 knots.

The 206 planes both have cargo-carrying pods. On an average trip, a plane might carry a payload (passengers and bags) of around 400 kilograms, or 950 pounds.

All planes are capable of doing emergency medical evacuations by removing some of the seats.
