Embattled Airline Silverstone seem to have found a way to comeback to the Kenyan skies after an imposed engine halts following numerous sell accidents that put the firm in negative limelight.
In February, Silverstone had announced the intention of coming back to business and they had applied with Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) for the approval of rebranding.
It however now appears that the Airline is already back in operation. Renegade Air which initially operated 3 planes under Governor’s Air has recently acquired new fleet in their expansion plan. Silverstone aircraft have been included in what could be a new partnership. The airline that has been in operation since 2012 and only operated chartered flights and flights to Wajir County, has announced their expansion to new destinations Masai Mara, Malindi and Lamu.
Every takeoff is optional, but every landing is mandatory. Soon we shall take off for #Malindi, #Lamu, and the #Mara. Join us as we embark on this new journey.— #FlyRenegadeAir (@flyrenegadeair) February 4, 2021

Dash 8-Q300 one of the most popular fleets of the Silverstone airline. The Dash 8s was also the reason Silverstone ground to an halt since it was responsible for the most accidents and mishaps.
Our fokker 50 (5Y – RNG) in #Tessalit, #Mali. Our PIC Farah Ahmed and SIC Abdiwahab Abdul just returned from their station in #Ndjamena, #Chad where they frequented Tessalit which is an oasis in the Sahara desert. Good job team!👍 #flyrenegadeair #bedifferent #safe #affordable pic.twitter.com/E2qEJAkfFw— #FlyRenegadeAir (@flyrenegadeair) March 2, 2021
The gradual process of starting with few routes could be a good strategy to develop customer confidence before they expand to other routes.
