The team at Rishworth recently returned from their quarterly visit to beautiful Vietnam. The team spent several days meeting and catching up with a number of our pilots in Ho Chi Minh City, as well as in Hanoi. Angela Hogg (Regional Manager), Jason Cochrane (Regional Director) and our Vietnam Representative, Nguyen Tien Trung had productive meetings with Vietnam Airlines, who confirmed – amongst other things - that one of its key areas of focus over the next few years will be its transition and upgrade programs to support the arrival of its new B787 and A350 fleets. VNA’s first B787 and A350 aircraft are due for delivery in July 2015, with a further 11 B787 and 9 A350 due by December 2016. 

With its ongoing expansion plans, and the introduction of these new fleets, VNA will continue to offer qualifying expatriate crews the opportunity to upgrade or transition as follows:

  • A320 FO – A320 PIC (ongoing)
  • A320 PIC – A320 LTC/TRI/TRE (ongoing)
  • ATR72 PIC – A320 PIC (ongoing)
  • A320/330 PIC/FO – A350/B787 PIC/FO (from 2016 onwards) 

    It is certainly the right time to make the move to Vietnam Airlines! Many of Rishworth Aviation’s pilots are already well on their way to fast-tracking their careers with Vietnam Airlines, click here to join them!
