@Stillpilot: No point in coming to Tanzania in September, the show's over by then. If you are looking for a job with any of the airlines in this country the only time to do so is February through May during hiring season shortly before all the tourists invade.

Work permits: Pain in the neck, but you get it eventually. Usually there are a few workarounds for the first few months, so now worry.

'Hunting' in Kenya, where to look.

I'm going to Kenya and Tanz later this year during the 'off season'.

Can anyone advise me on where the doors are I should go knockin? I recon there is not much to do around Kenyatta and Mombasa airport. Is it mainly Wilson and Malindi, maybe Kisumu?

I have a few mates flying in Tanz so thats covered.

If you have nothing to contribute, please don't

Don't get on your high horse, I know how PPRuNe threads get out of hand by people changing the subject and then starting to ramble on about politics, religion and all other unrelated crap you can imagine. Kind of like what you posted

If you want me to put it more politely, please stay on subject. Jeez...

Jobs in Africa

Well, I don't find that thread very informative. People just post their hours there. Not sure how that will land you a job.

I am looking for info about Kenya specifically as well. Thx though

Staying on subject then, how about posting hours and experience on this thread and then maybe someone can tell you if they have any use for you and in what context or capacity?

Alright, fair enough I was trying to avoid posting hours because I know what the reactions will be (you ignorant ůµ$^$;: etc), but here goes

Small stuff, SEP MEP SET. Low hours. Currently have 600 of which most are bush flying. I know it's low for Kenya and chances are very slim. I know I know, it's impossible to get a job with my experience. I'm just wondering which places to visit in ignorant bliss . Mainly around Wilson airport. The trip will mainly be informative.

I am sure you are as good as the next 600 hour pilot , but if you read some of the many Kenya forums on pp you will realise that it is work permits that are as rare as rocking horse poo , not jobs . Good luck anyway .

Sounds like things are tricky in Bots as well. Perhaps Tanzania would be more worth your while. Have you given ASF a go? Ran into a couple of Belgian guys operating a OO reg C207 in Bunia, DRC in support of MSF. There may be a gap there but no idea what they pay as they seem to be more of a volunteer organisation from what I gathered.
