Hello, do you have any info about Mozambique? I visited Mzb in 2004, loved the country and the people. It would be very nice to start my flying career there.
Regards to all

Yeah, you can get a job if you hold a South African comm license.

Actually Pinante, you should try Angola. You need to speak Portuguese there to get any work. A lot of Brazilian companies there.
Spend a few hours trawling the web looking for things there.
1 point I can give you is, take pleanty of money there. It is the most expensive expat country in the world.

When I realy decided to look for a job in África, Angola was my first choice.
Unfortunatly the Portuguese isn't the only thing you need to work there. As you said, lots of money to spend while you are waiting for a job is one of the conditions, but the most important one is to have someone inside of the aviation world.
I have some friends in Angola but they don't work in aviation. Without Angolan citizenship and with my small cv, they can't do nothing for me.
I've the ICAO level 5 in my licence and I speak Portuguese, why would I need a "South African comm license"?

As most of the charter companies that hire low timers are flying SA registered airplanes you will need an SA license to be able to fly there. And maybe you speak Portugese and English but I'm pretty sure that Afrikaans is a must as well.
