Tracy Marulitua - Indonesia Representative
I have been working with Rishworth Aviation as the Indonesia Representative for over 12 years. My experience in the aviation sector in Indonesia extends back 15 years, which includes leasing pilots as well as contract training through Air New Zealand. I have lived and worked in Indonesia for a total of 11 years and I speak fluent Bahasa Indonesia.
After almost three years, the feeling is that the people I’m connected to at Rishworth are like old friends. We speak about families and our daily lives. I really like this, and is the reason why I preferred to work at Wings with Rishworth.
Living and working in Indonesia is great. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly and the culture is rich and diverse. Rishworth have been a pleasure to deal with since I started with Lion Air.
