A buddy of mine has taken a job flying in Kenya. Any thoughts on things to be looking for when taking this job?
Where is your housing...Hi!
This is me. Leaving for Nairobi Sun, to fly DC-9s for a Belgian co. I will have cash, and register with Embassy-thanx 4 that!
I have my own round trip ticket, so I can bail if it goes to he!!.
The op is supposed to be flying all over E. Africa, and some West. They were going to Dubai 2x/week, but I guess that was changed (know 2 guys in Dubai, so too bad!).
There is another guy from our co. now flying -900s for Arik in Lagos. I also know another guy flying for??? out of Aden-that sounds pretty scary.
I have found 4 or 5 guys on pprune that are in NBO, or know about it, so that helps.
I am trying to figure out what to bring:
Cold weather stuff?
Any suggestins/help/advice is GREATLY appreciated!
Oh, also: The aircraft are registered in Sao Taome, but they are changing to Kenyan registration. I will be working on the Kenyan Air Law Exam right away, as well as riding jumpseat to see what the operation is like.
I'd advise a second passport. Register with the embassy. A couple of thousand US cash stashed. Is he flying a Kenyan registered airplane? It took me a month to get an authorization to fly a King Air out of there.
Africa, by Toto I think. Best of luck to ya, I don't think I've ever met a pilot who hasn't at least toyed with the idea of going to Africa. Keep us all posted!!Hi!
