French air charity receives virtual funding
Aviation Sans Frontières is to receive funding from the gaming community. Daher’s Kodiak 100 has been added to the Microsoft Flight Simulator and proceeds from app sales will be passed on to the humanitarian operator.
Kodiak flight sim app sales generate income for Aviation Sans Frontières.

Aviation Sans Frontières is to receive funding from the purchase of Daher Kodiak 100 ‘flights’ on the Microsoft Flight Simulator, based on the add-ons sold via various gaming sites. Daher will pass on the funding to Fondaher, the endowment fund initiated by the Daher family and supported by the company and its employees as part of its corporate social responsibility policy.

"Our thanks go to Daher and the company's Fondaher endowment fund in helping make this a reality,” says president Gérard Feldzer. “With the Kodiak 100 in our colours, it will be possible for a wide audience to experience humanitarian aviation while operating from challenging African locations, performing rough field landings, airlifting essential equipment and delivering medical personnel to remote sites.”

Created with Daher's involvement and incorporating the input of actual Kodiak pilots, the simulator programme comes in four different wheeled variants featuring 40 different liveries, authentic flight dynamics and high-quality systems modelling.
