Blow for former Blackwater tsar as Kenya Civil Aviation pulls air service license

“‘No Blackwater shenanigans in Kenya’ appears to be the message sent out by Kenya’s Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) when news emerged that Kijipwa Aviation Limited, a locally-incorporated airline with a base at their own airfield in Kilifi county, Kenya coast, was denied the renewal of their air service license, effectively grounding them.

Blackwater founder Erik Prince, through the Hong Kong-based FSG company where his is now serving as Chairman of the Board, had acquired a 49 percent stake in Kijipwa earlier this year, surprising pundits and aviation observers what purpose such an acquisition could have, considering the location and size of the airline, and yet appears to have paid for the share in what appears way over market price.”
