Korean Air Pilot Testimonial

“KAL is the best airline – flight operations, aircraft maintenance and the level of respect the company gives the pilots.  I always tell my colleagues at other airlines that KAL is the best. When I considered applying for KAL I compared Rishworth with other agencies I had dealt with in the past, and Rishworth was the most reliable, plausible company.  There are two things that are very important to me and I’m very happy with how Rishworth has managed these 1) Rishworth wire money to my account on time every month, and 2) Rishworths have quality insurance protection at the right price.  I feel secure with Rishworths size and I have found them to be a very good agency.” (Rishworth Contractor, Korean Air Captain)
