Proflight Zambia has appointed one of the country’s youthful, experienced and professional commercial pilots as its new chief pilot.

Captain Josias Walubita was confirmed as the airline’s new chief pilot by Proflight’s chief executive officer Tony Irwin this week.

“Congratulations to Josias Walubita, we are proud and confident that he will help take the airline to new heights. With our motto of maintaining safety, reliability, efficiency and providing a friendly service may we work together and give our new chief pilot your full support,” said Mr Irwin.

“The time seems right to mix some youth with experience in this position. Thank you to all the applicants. After careful consideration we decided to appoint Josias Walubita to this position with immediate effect.”

Capt. Walubita will work closely with the administration and flight operations manager to maintain and improve flight safety, crew training, flight dispatch, crew planning, and scheduling and operational control.

Capt. Walubita takes over the position from Capt. Gerald Tembo, who has been promoted to the position of flight operations manager.

The latest appointment reinforces Proflight’s ethos of driving professionalism in the Zambian aviation industry, and its policy of appointing Zambian nationals to key posts.

As a Zambian-owned airline, Proflight is operated by Zambian citizens and the airline employs more than 200 people including ground staff, pilots and cabin crew. All staff undergo regular training. Pilots and cabin attendants receive annual training in compliance with ICAO annexes.
