Pacific Arlines Pilot Support - Captain Robert Aitchison
I have been on contract in Vietnam for more than fourteen years, punctuated by an eighteen month break for a project role in my home country of Australia. I am currently contracted to Pacific Airlines as a Designated Pilot Examiner and have held various roles in both Training, Checking and performing Management roles at various times as Fleet and Standards Manager and Post Holder Training. My flying experience encompasses more than twenty five years as an expatriate pilot flying both Boeing and Airbus in Asia and the Middle East. Prior to embarking on my expatriate adventures I was ten years with Ansett Airlines in Australia. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Vietnam flying community and look forward to meeting with you and assisting in helping you establish yourselves in this interesting country.
