Solomon Airlines has congratulated Captains Cornelius Vonseu and Steven Aumanu following the successful completion of both pilot’s Instructional Techniques Course via the assistance of Civil Aviation Authority of Solomon Islands (CAASI) Instructor, Captain Gerard Rea.
A media statement from Solomon Airlines said the training was conducted in the Solomon Airlines training facility at the Henderson Airport.
It says the qualification is seen as instrumental in that Captain Vonseu has achieved his D category Flight Check approvals for flying the airline’s Twin Otter aircraft.
The statement adds Captain Vonseu will be qualified to act as a Twin Otter training Captain, assisting Chief Pilot Captain Geoff Posala in his current role as the only Check and Training pilot in the airlines’ domestic fleet.
It says Captain Aumanu will also achieve the same category and will eventually qualify as the second Check and Training pilot for both the airline’s Twin Otter and Islander aircrafts.
