Wonko the Sane needs your help please

Unread post by Wonko the Sane » Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:30 pm

My name is André Dethioux a.k.a Wonko the Sane here on Avcom.

I am currently the Services Supervisor for Nampak Bevcan Angola (a beverage can manufacturer).

This position requires my skills (mentally and physically) in all facets of plant support services including but not limited to:
• Gas (LPG)
• Diesel Fuel (for our Generation System, as there is no grid power available)
• Power Generation
• Water and Effluent treatment (ZLD and RO system). Water is our second most expensive commodity
• Vacuum and Compressed Air systems
• Fire suppression Systems

I have an expansive field of experience gained from a working career spanning (to date) 36 years.

I have extensive experience in Radio and microwave Data transmission, Telemetry, Automation (including SCADA), Project Management and Maintenance Planning, with hands-on knowledge in all of these fields.

My weaknesses are, in no particular order:
• Low qualification level (N4 Electronics, HCPM)
• Zero GA experience (although I know where most airports are and have worked airside at O.R.T.I.A)
• Male
• Over 50 (Conscription Generation)
• Caucasian (White African)
• An irrational loathing of dumb-asses, wise-asses and common idiots.
• Scale Helicopters

What I offer:
• Superior intelligence
• Sense of humour
• Willingness to still learn new things (Acquired my RPL recently)
• OCD levels of attention to detail (I’ve had to take meds and tone it down a bit to function here in Angola) (Please see my scale
builds on Avcom)
• A passion for all things aircraft (with an unashamed bias towards helicopters)
• Exceptional problem solving skills
• Potent powers of persuasion
• Fully bilingual with a dash of Portuguese
• Optional verbal skills like sarcasm and wit when required
• Professional appearance
• Mobile (own neat vehicle)

Why I need your help:
• I have worked in many places in Africa, all of which I enjoyed.
• I have been in Angola now for 4 years.
• I need to go home.
• I have a spouse on an empty nest.
• I want to conclude my career in a challenging aviation related field.

What I require:
• A permanent position.
• A market related salary adjusted for my experience (preferably including contributions to a RA of sorts and MA contribution). I am
worth it!
• Opportunity for continued short term travel.
• A 3 month notice period (subject to negotiations)from my current employer.

Thank you

I don't care what you think of me! Unless you think I'm awesome - then you're right, carry on!

My flying is not that bad....I've never left one up there..
