Captain Sergey Popov
"I have been with Rishworth Aviation since 1999 when I joined as a B777 Captain flying for Korean Air. I remain in this position and I have also been working as Auditor in Korean Air’s Flight Operation Quality Assurance Department. Prior to this, I flew for more than 21 years with Aeroflot, progressing from First Officer on a turboprop to widebody Captain whilst also holding management positions. I look forward to working with you and supporting you at screening and when working with Korean Air.”
Flying the Boeing 777 for Korean Air is a most enjoyable and satisfying way to earn a living. Rishworth acts professionally and when any contractual issues arise they are dealt with promptly and effectively. I highly recommend Rishworth.
Rishworth's staff are professional, knowledgeable and they have a great working relationship with Korean Air. From the application process, screening, and now flying, I have complete trust in Rishworth.
Korean Air is a very well organized company, flying worldwide with an excellent commuting contract. Rishworth Aviation were very supportive, starting from when I received the paperwork until the moment I boarded the plane to start my course in Seoul.
