What I enjoy most about my Vietnam Airlines' career...
"All the staff are friendly, even the CEO, I'm treated like part of the family. Flying is based on straight Airbus SOPs and flight training manuals are in English, so there is no risk of mistranslations. Schedules offer 10h duty days or less, the first officers are good to fly with, Vietnam Airlines crew are well-trained, and the mechanics have fantastic standards. It's a wonderful place to work."
- S. Chong, Vietnam Airlines Captain & TRE (A320)

More from our Vietnam Airlines Pilots...
"My name is Andras, I am from Hungary. I work as a Captain on the A320/321 fleet at Vietnam Airlines, since 2010. I finished my upgrade training with Vietnam Airlines in 2012 and now I am enjoying life in the left seat. I really like living and working in Vietnam. Vitnam Airlines has many aircrafts on order, I am sure there are many opportunities here in the next few years. I really hope that I can stay here for a long time."
- Captain A. Bagyuj, Vietnam Airlines Captain (A320)
"After flying for more than 20 years in Mexico I decided to take the big step and become an expat pilot. I have found in Vietnam Airlines a solid company with expansion plans that can assure me a stable job in the coming years. The working atmosphere is cordial and fulfilling, as you fly both with expat and local pilots. Hanoi has turned out to be a great place to settle down, depending on your needs, you will find the correct place to establish alone or with your family. Also, its numerous parks and lakes provide this beautiful town with a distinctive attraction - you can ride next to them on your bike or motorbike, and enjoy a coffee or coconut, admiring the sunset along with the city's skyline. There are numerous international schools and Rishworth's medical assistance will provide you with top level medical service, at one of the most renowned clinics in Hanoi. I've had a very good experience working with Rishworth, they have always assisted me with my needs, and I strongly recommend working with them!"
- Captain G. Cuevas, Vietnam Airlines Captain (A321)
"I fly the A321 as a First Officer for Vietnam Airlines, and am based in Hanoi. Tay Ho is a pleasant place for expats to live, with nice restaurants, gyms and a great social life etc. I have lived here for about a year now and I can recommend this contract to everyone. Flying in this area is very nice and easy, it is less stressful than in Europe, and you can fly approaches like VOR, visual or circling here, which makes the job more interesting. During the dry season it is like flying in paradise. Upgrades to captain or to the A350 or B787 fleet are possible as well.Rishworth has helped me very much since the beginning, and from the first contact with agency it took only two months to join the company."
- I. Subin, Vietnam Airlines First Officer (A321)
"I have been with Rishworth for over 8 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 & TRE (A320)
"I have been working in Vietnam Airlines for almost 3 years. When I came here I was surprised by how Rishworth received us. Very professional with a detailed briefing on what to expect in our new job, for sure Rishworth Aviation was my best option. My current base is the city of Hanoi. It is a modern city, yet steeped in history, French-style colonial homes, natural parks within the city and most importantly, a safe place to live."
- Captain S. Martinez, Vietnam Airlines Captain (ATR-72)
"I have been working at Vietnam Airlines as a First Officer on an A321 aircraft. I have found Rishworth Aviation very professional and supportive, following me step by step in my new flight career. I find Vietnam Airlines a very professional and well organized company and I am enjoying working with crew of various nationalities. As the company's growth continues I hope to be upgraded in seat or fleet soon. I am based in Hanoi, which is a very interesting city, where local and international cultures are interconnected."
- A. Domeniconi, Vietnam Airlines First Officer (A321)
"I have been with Rishworth / Vietnam Airlines now for 6 weeks as a First Officer on the A330 based in Hanoi. I have my family with me and coming from Australia it was all a bit of an unknown but is working out well and all are enjoying themselves. I can say the experience has been positive and all the team at Rishworth have been proactive with the transition to Vietnam Airlines and life in Vietnam. They appear to have a good working relationship with Vietnam Airlines. My meetings with Vietnam Airlines and Vietnamese people in general has been a very pleasant experience. They are very proud of their airline and country, and have good reason to be. Overall it is a very relaxed working environment with the minimum of fuss. I am happy here with Rishworth and Vietnam Airlines and feel privileged to be involved with both."
