Monoturboprop (well known PT6) uses Jet A1. Cessna Caravan has a high wing and fixed landing gear.

The approved Part 145 Workshop " France Aviation " based in Toussus-le-Noble is responsible for maintenance.
Six volunteer mechanics, all possessing the required qualifications, are authorized to work on ASF Caravan.
In 2009, ASF signed an agreement with Air France management so that some Air France (AF) mechanics- can intervene as volunteers on the ASF planes based in the DRC. This partnership allows our association to reduce its maintenance costs while benefiting from perfectly qualified personnel. The AF mechanics working on ASF planes also volunteer their services.
To carry out small maintenance, a Part 145 certificated workshop has been installed at the N'dolo airport in Kinshasa.
