In an effort to assist on-going humanitarian relief efforts in CHAD, the ECHO-Flight program, funded by the European Commission and operated by DAC Aviation International positioned an aircraft in N’DJAMENA this week. With 2013 marking new challenges across the African continent, the drive to make a difference has never been stronger. Furthermore, this new mission gives ECHO an opportunity to present the humanitarian airlineâ€™s new livery. The new paint scheme significantly increases the ability for personnel to recognize ECHO aircraft with a bold blue and yellow design and the EU flag on the tail.
The first aircraft to display this new livery is DACâ€™s very own factory new Grand Caravan EX, offering up the latest and greatest in technological advancements in the aviation industry. For this particular mission, 5Y-DAB has been assigned to one of DACâ€™s highly skilled and professional flight and operations teams, lead by Capt. Erick Munuve.

Having commenced operations on January 8th 2014, DAC Aviationâ€™s Grand Caravan EX will be operating for the ECHO-Flight program on a short-term mission based out of Nâ€™djamena, Chad. DAC Aviation would like to wish its crew and the ECHO-Flight program the best of luck.
