Pilots' Views on Flying in Africa with Rishworth Aviation


Pilot AfricaWhat I enjoy most about working with Rishworth Aviation...



"My collaboration with Rishworth Aviation started 2 years ago when they offered me a contract in Africa. I have really enjoyed            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 time the extent of professionalism and unbiased standards that Rishworth offers.

I sincerely appreciate their responsiveness to my requests and the professional and friendly way they have treated me throughout these two years.

I feel that this relationship will last many years. I can rely on the dependable services offered by Rishworth Aviation in order to make critical decisions for my future as an Airline pilot."

"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."

Capt. Alvaro Franco Herrera, CRJ200 Captain

About Africa and the regions Rishworth Aviation has opportunities

Flying over Africa is simply stunning; the constant changes of the magnificent scenery will always hold the interest of a pilot. The dawn above the permanent snow-covered peak of Mt Kilimanjaro; the sunset over the Serengeti; midday over the unexplored jungles of the Congo, where the sun's rays never reach the ground; and the sweet afternoon breeze in the Ivory Coast will be indelibly etched in your memory. Day to day life with the friendly locals make pilots continue to fly in this welcoming and challenging continent. Only exciting memories will accompany your decision to select Africa as your next flying destination.

Africa has abundant natural resources; due to the vast size of the landmass, it is heavily reliant on air transport for both passengers and freight. Rishworth Aviation supplies personnel to clients in countries of Southern, Eastern and Northern Africa.

Southern Africa

Southern Africa's landscape varies between grasslands, forests and deserts.  Afrikaans, English and Bantu-based dialects make up the most common languages spoken in Southern Africa. Southern Africa is home to significant wildlife, resulting in considerable tourism.

Eastern Africa

The stunning landscapes and natural features such as Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya and the concentrations of wild animals such as elephants, buffalo, lion, gorillas, leopard and rhino, have made countries in East Africa popular tourist destinations. 

Northern Africa

North Africa is famous for the Sahara desert, the Atlas mountains, and countries such as Egypt and Morocco. As a result, the region has a vast number of annual visitors.
