There is flying in Africa and there is flying in Africa. And there's a lot of opportunities for the low timer.
Muli bwanji? is chichewa for: How are you? (Thanks Mike for the question) Me, better and better.
I managed to exchange some info with a guy in Malawi. And yes there is hiring even at this moment. What they want you to have? 250 TT, CPL license with an IR and preferably an ME rating. What they fly? Piper Cherokee's and Seneca's, Airvan's, Beech Baron's.
So if you really start exploring the possibilities you'll find that fortunately there is flying in Africa for starters. Over beautiful scenery.
