Silverstone freed from Dash 8 operating ban

Kenyan authorities have lifted the restrictions imposed on Silverstone Air Services' Bombardier Dash 8 fleet, a week after banning the airline from flying the type.

Silverstone had been subjected to the seven-day prohibition after a compliance audit by the Kenyan civil aviation authority.

But the authority says the carrier has taken "satisfactory corrective measures" and that the restriction has been removed.

Silverstone will remain under surveillance, however. The carrier was involved in a runway excursion on 11 October and the loss of a wheel from a Dash 8 on 28 October.
