Support Services in South East Asia
Vietnam Pilot Support - Captain Nicholas Guindy
My aviation career started in Denmark, where I completed my ATPL with Copenhagen Air Taxi, in 2003. It was 2006 when I took up my first aviation job for a German Charter Company. Having completed 6 great years in Germany, I was looking for a new challenge and a bit of adventure, so I made the move to a warmer climate and worked as an ATR72 Line Captain in the Philippines. In 2014, I decided to explore South East Asia further and so signed a contract with Rishworth to work as an ATR72 Line Captain for Vietnam Airlines based in Hanoi. After 3.5 years with Vietnam Airlines, I was given the opportunity to transition to the A321 Fleet and was released in March 2018 as A321 Line Captain. I am thoroughly enjoying living and working in South East Asia and I am glad to be part of the Rishworth Pilot Support Team, responsible for welcoming and assisting new comers and supporting our current crews too, in the best and most fun possible way.
Vietnam Pilot Support - Captain Rick Nardine
I began with Rishworth Aviation in 2000 as an A320 Line Captain in Vietnam, made a transition to Captain the A330, an then again to the A350. I have travelled to most countries in this part of the world and have lived and worked in more than 13 countries in South East Asia, Europe and the Americas. I have command ratings on both Airbus and Boeing and more than 30 years aviation experience - the last 14 years of which have been for Vietnam Airlines. I really enjoy working as a member of the Pilot Support team, greeting new recruits and helping pilots adjust to the 'Vietnamese way'. I also enjoy travel, golf, nightlife, food and beer.

I am proud to be a part of the Rishworth Aviation team, working with our pilots around Vietnam. From the initial screening process, to your start in country and beyond, I look forward to supporting you, and your families, with whatever you need. I am available to assist and advise on finding housing, schooling, opening bank accounts, travel tips, and any other matters regarding ex-patriate life in Vietnam. I love travelling and meeting people from other cultures and I look forward to welcoming you soon too!
