Feedback about pilot jobs in Korea
"Working with Rishworth has been a great experience, they will assist you throughout the screening process and make it easier. They will guide you step by step and give you the most useful information for your screening process and about living in Korea, as well as other relevant information. I really recommend working with Rishworth Aviation.”
E. Olmeda, Asiana Airlines First Officer (A320)
"I do not take career decisions lightly, this is why for the last 2 years I've known I made the right choice to join Rishworth. In this volatile worldwide airline industry you need the support of a reliable and trustworthy company to back you up when you most need it. That is exactly what I have got from Rishworth through their professionalism, personal attention to my needs, and high standards of service. I strongly recommend Rishworth to future pilots around the world."
C. Cartagena, Asiana Airlines Captain (A320)
"Rishworth's support during my tenure at Korean Air has been excellent. Their staff are professional, knowledgeable and has a working relationship with Korean Air management. From the application process, screening, and now flying the line I have been completely satisfied with the job they do on my behalf. They have my complete confidence and I highly recommend joining Korean Air with Rishworth."
B. Shockley, Korean Air First Officer (A330)
"We are able to bid for, and are almost always granted our requested days at home every month; our flying rosters very rarely change once published; good travel benefits and a clear, unambiguous contract. The airline has solid SOPs and a good safety culture. The Korean First Officers with whom we fly are competent, keen to learn and, despite my lack of conversational Korean, a pleasure to fly with. Flying the Boeing 777 is a most enjoyable and satisfying way to earn a living. I enjoy the contrast of the airspace in which we operate – from the frozen void of the northern polar region to the most complex and busy airspaces in the world. I enjoy managing the challenges presented by the extreme weather conditions we face, from monsoon thunderstorms to the searing heat of a Middle East summer or the brutal cold of a North American or Russian winter. It is a privilege being able to spend time in a wide variety of places, experiencing different cultures and learning about the social, economic and political issues that affect people all over the world. Rishworth Aviation is a highly professional aircrew agency who has our best interests at heart. Rishworth acts as a conduit for any contractual issues which may arise between us and the airline, all of which are dealt with efficiently, effectively and promptly"
J. Pooler, Korean Air Captain (B777)
“KAL is the best airline – flight operations, aircraft maintenance and the level of respect the company gives the pilots. I always tell my colleagues at other airlines that KAL is the best. When I considered applying for KAL I compared Rishworth with other agencies I had dealt with in the past, and Rishworth was the most reliable, plausible company. There are two things that are very important to me and I’m very happy with how Rishworth has managed these 1) Rishworth wire money to my account on time every month, and 2) Rishworths have quality insurance protection at the right price. I feel secure with Rishworths size and I have found them to be a very good agency.”

Feedback about pilot jobs in Vietnam
"I've been in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam since the fall of 2004, and I've loved every minute of it - my wife loves living here, too! I appreciated the assistance given to me by Rishworth Aviation. From the initial screening details to getting settled in, Rishworth and their senior pilot here in Vietnam were there to help me. I chose Rishworth because of the number of Asia contracts they have available. And, the contracts they offer are competitive. One of the major differences between a Rishworth contract and others is the medical/dental/disability insurance package. Flying for Vietnam Airlines has been fun and enjoyable. It's fun flying, quite different from what I'm used to in the U.S. The Vietnamese culture permeates throughout the airline. I'm always treated kindly, with courtesy, and respect. I can recommend Rishworth/Vietnam Airlines to anyone interested in contract flying".
T. Conard, Vietnam Airlines Captain (A320)
"I have been with Rishworth for over 2 years and am currently on contract to Vietnam Airlines. During this period, I have found Rishworth to be very professional and pro-active. They are helpful and understanding. Their quick response and friendly staff make them a pleasure to work with. I recommend Rishworth to anyone venturing into the world of contract aviation. You will be in very good and safe hands!"
D. Kumar, Vietnam Airlines Captain & TRI (A320)
"I have been on contract with Rishworth Aviation in Vietnam since December 2009. Rishworth provided me with great support and guidance through the application stage and for the screening, and this continues now that I am on contract with them. I enjoyed meeting the Rishworth team when they visited Ho Chi Minh City recently. They have made the whole contracting process very easy and I am really enjoying my new life flying for Vietnam Airlines."
P. Tan, Vietnam Airlines First Officer (A330)
"Rishworth provided me with great support and guidance from the application period until the end of my contract. Everytime I had a question about something, Rishworth was right there with an answer for me. Working for Vietnam Airlines was a great experience. Everybody was great to work with, from the van drivers to upper management. I am so glad I was able to experience the different kind of flying and working with so many different nationalities that I would have never encountered in the US. If anyone was looking to get into contract flying I would recommend going with Rishworth Aviation."
T. Knapp, ex-Vietnam Airlines Captain (A320)
"In 2008 I worked with Rishworth at Vietnam Airlines which I enjoyed immensely. It was very much to our surprise the Vietnam government requires female pilots to retire at 55. Rishworth and their local representatives worked hard to find a solution, but in the end, that was not to be the case. However I can say that Rishworth supported me and also assisted me financially. Rishworth treated me well and I wouldn’t hesitate to contract with them again."
G. Miller, ex-Vietnam Airlines First Officer (A320)
“I was very impressed by the professionalism Rishworth had demonstrated. I got responses to email enquiries within 24 hrs, everyone had been very helpful. I feel Rishworth Aviation is a very professional outfit and I can’t recommend you highly enough. Thank you so much for all your help and assistance!”
P. Vaid, B737 First Officer, Jetstar Pacific Vietnam

Feedback about pilot jobs in China
"I've been with Rishworth Aviation for over a year here in Shanghai. Their attention to detail in settling me and family here was immeasurable. Jim, the Rishworth rep here in Shanghai was instrumental in negotiating our living arrangements and was very helpful with advice about living here. All other aspects have been top quality with Rishworth from on time payments to help in settling medical claims through their insurance provider. Rishworth really does give a personable service they have always been willing to quickly resolve any issues that has crept up." J Harder, Shanghai Airlines B737NG Captain
"I am currently a Captain on the Airbus 319 working for Deer Airlines living in Sanya, China. Before coming to China I was apprehensive about what it would be like to live in another country and work for a foreign airline. With the guidance of the Foreign Chief Pilot, to the welcome dinner from the Chairman of the airline, it is refreshing to be treated as a professional and with respect. Since arriving in China I found the people at Deer Airlines to be are very friendly and helpful. When it came time to move to Sanya, Jim from Rishworth was a tremendous help on getting me set up in an apartment and making sure he was available to help me if I had any problems. Flying the line has been easier then I anticipated with the English speaking cockpit crews and ATC. The cabin crews are young and enthusiastic with good attitudes that are hard to find in the United States. The 6 week on 2 week off schedule is very flexible, so the ability to go back home or travel is at your leisure. Flying trips where you are home every night reduces the amount of fatigue on the body and makes you wonder how you ever put up with doing four day trips. Living in Sanya is inexpensive and laid back. The air pollution is one of the lowest levels in China. The three different beach areas allow plenty of opportunity for rest and relaxation. The expat community in Sanya is small but very well connected. Overall working for Deer Airlines has been a very positive experience. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a new adventure."
C. Friedl, A320 Captain, Beijing Capital Airlines (formerly Deer Air)
"I joined Rishworth Aviation and Deer Air in December 2008. Deer Air is a high growth carrier within the larger Hainan Airline Group. Hainan Airlines is the 4th largest airline in China. The Chinese Pilots here are clearly some of the best in the world. Our First Officers are very professional, well trained and fly to perfection. Our schedules are efficient and do not include any nights away from base. This is truly a Captains Airline. Both Deer Air and Rishworth have been outstanding to the Contract Foreign Pilots here. Rishworth has a very effective Management Team in China to ensure unrivalled service to both the Pilots and the Airline."
B. Broyles, A320 Captain, Beijing Capital Airlines (formerly Deer Air)

Feedback about pilot jobs in Indonesia
"First of all I would like to say that Jakarta is a great place to live. My wife and I really like Jakarta because there are a few things that are really important when you move from your hometown to another place that are going to make you feel at home. The locals are really friendly - sometimes the language could be a barrier but they do their best to help you out. The city is clean and you find whatever you want or need, making Jakarta my second home. Flying for Wings Air has also been such a great expirience. They try to help you to enjoy your time here, making my stay in jakarta pleasant and easy. Their ATRs are brand new - they’re kept clean and well maintained and we get to fly around Indonesia where all the islands are beautiful, making each landing a delight for the view of those who love nature. Flying here is fantastic!"

Feedback about pilot jobs in Japan
"I am on my second contract with Rishworth Aviation and all I can say is thank you.
When you are looking for a job, having the right agent to assist you is essential. The recruitment consultants are very efficient during the recruitment process and on my arrival in Japan, I didn´t find a Rishworth representative, I found a friend. Thank you Tsutomu Terashima san [Rishworth in market representative] for making everything so easy.
Is Rishworth the best? I don’t know but they are doing an excellent job for me."

From that moment, I really enjoy the astonishing cooperation characterized by professionalism, understanding and very efficient consistent support and fair representation of me.I really enjoy flying over Africa, and at the same moment the extent of professionalism and unbiased standards that Rishworth offers.I sincerely appreciate their responsiveness in my requests and the professional and friendly way they treat me at all cases during these two years.I feel that this relationship will last many years as I always rely on the dependable services offered by Rishworth in order to take a critical decision for my future as an Airline pilot."
Captain Zafeirakis Charalampos, B735 Captain
"All the airline staff have treated me with courtesy and respect and I have already made a number of friends in the short period I have been here. The schedules are quite comfortable and the airplanes have excellent maintenance by Lufthansa's engineers.
The Chief Pilot, Fleet Manager, Director of Training and just about everyone else, locals and expats have been very friendly and helping me find a place to live and showing me around the city.
Before joining Rishworth Aviation I had been both a direct employee with Airlines in America, Asia and the Middle East but by far the contract that Rishworth got me in Africa has been the best of all."

It has been amazing the experience of working and sharing with people from all over the world, for sure this contributed a lot to my professional and personal development. I am also very grateful to RAM Express for opening its doors to me and my family, it has been three years of excellent treatment and consideration, not only as a crew member but also as a human being.

Everyone has been so helpful and nothing seems to be a problem. This is particularly admirable when I bear in mind that I am one of very many pilots that you have placed throughout the world. Well done. All in all I could not speak more highly of the wonderful job you guys do there.
