We are starting another series of podcast chats, this one focused on Africa. Using the same free-wheeling formula as our Indian series, we will chat monthly with a local aviation expert.

Our “Africa Chat” is with Sean Mendis. Sean has a two-decade history in African commercial aviation. He knows all the key players in the region and is a wealth of information and insight on the continent’s commercial aviation scene. He is known for his frank views and “straight talk.”  We are excited to his views add to our African covergae.

In our first chat, I asked Sean to provide a sense of the market – its geographic size (did you know Cairo is closer to Toronto than to Cape Town?); the challenges of traveling across Africa by road and rail are the reason the continent needs to open up its skies.

We welcome any suggestions for our next chat.

Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
