"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.”
