Our  Pilots experiences - Indonesia

"In Rishworth Aviation I have found efficiency, integrity and a partner, ready and willing to be of assistance in every way. I enjoy every minute of flying for Garuda Indonesia in the CRJ 1000 Next Gen, which is the top of the range model in the CRJ Series. Indonesian people are the friendliest and most hospitable people I have ever come across and have made each minute of my presence here a real pleasure. To any pilot considering a contract with Rishworth Aviation and Garuda Indonesia, I offer my unreserved recommendation."

- CRJ1000 PIC Nyamodi, Garuda Indonesia 

"So far I love being and flying here. Indonesian people are really lovely and it is a delight to work with them!"

- ATR72 PIC Piquemal, Garuda Indonesia 

"I have been working in Indonesia less than a year and it has been a very rewarding experience to know this beautiful country and this prestigious company. What impresses me most about Indonesia is the warmth of its people, especially within the company where we are treated with respect and consideration."

- ATR72 PIC Hoyos, Garuda Indonesia 

"I have been working for Garuda Indonesia through Rishworth Aviation now for 8 months, since Oct 2014 and I have only good things to say from both, Garuda Indonesia and Rishworth Aviation. Rishworth Aviation has always been very supportive from the beginning of the screening process, giving all of us pilots very good and important hints, and still is. Rishworth Aviation staff will always try to help you and guide you in order to make you success and make this great adventure as pleasurable both professionally and personally as possible. Garuda Indonesia staff is unbeatable; they are professional, proactive and willing to go the extra mile."

- ATR72 FO Menguez, Garuda Indonesia

"I have been working for Wings Air through Rishworth Aviation since 2011. My experience with Rishworth has been excellent; they have always been very supportive and always attentive to any need I have had throughout this time. Wings Air made me feel like part of the family from the beginning. The bosses are very communicative with all the pilots, so this makes everything easy. The company is solid and the work environment is optimal. My family and I are very happy living in Bali. The air is clean, people are nice and friendly, the culture and history are amazing with many temples and places to visit. There are also many expatriates from all around the world living here, so you can easily find products we find in Europe, Australia or US. There are also many restaurants with food from all around the world. The cost of living in Bali is excellent (low) too. Personally the experience to work with Rishworth and Wings Air has been amazing.   

- ATR72 PIC Villegas, Wings Air

"Working with Wings Air has been a marvellous experience since I have been in wonderful and unique places, flying with brand new aircrafts with good safety programs and maintenance, friendly ground and cabin staff. The Rishworth support has given me the confidence of a stable and enjoyable assignment."
