Question Lokichokio - UN Pilot post

Jambo !

Just a request for help here folks.

I've been all over the UN Websites to try to find the organisations that are involved in the flying of UN aid from Loki out over the Sudan.

I've drawn a bit of a blank but I would like to get in contact in the hope of doing this kind of flying.

I understand that a Kenyan CPL is required but I was hoping that a JAA CPL would be convertable.
If you have any further info it would be very much appreciated.

I'm a mature low hour pilot who's done some military in Kenya, as well as wife's family living in that hemisphere.

Last time I was in the Sudan the UN aircraft were all Russian/Ukranian and the pilots likewise. Suggest they were all recruited from those countries.

When I flew for the UN it was as a member of a commercial company that had a contract with the UN. The UN does not, to my best belief, have some form of airforce.

feet 'n knees, haven't been there for a coupla three years but .....
As mentioned UN work is contracted out. Kenyan companies, not too easy. CPL will be converted but a conversion exam required, but getting a licence requires getting a job and a letter of no objection from the KCAA, getting a job requires a license...
Try ALS ( Aircraft Leasing Services ), Queensway, Air Kenya, East african express, Trident (Operating out of Loki and Nbo). Seems all North Sudanese work out of Khartoum is Antonov and all that entails. Operations also starting or started out of Rumbek and Juba. Try find someone working for the above Co's to see who's bidding for what, where, and get more up to date info. Also 748 Services, Turbine air services. ( Nbo offices ) Good experience if you can get it, good luck.
