Adriano. S. R. Neto was born the only child and single-handedly raised by his mother, Ms. M. Mugwenhi, and attend his school at Churchill Boys High in Harare. From as early as he remembers his only dream has always been to be a Pilot

After completion of his high school he started his flight training in 2008 at Professional Pilot Training under the instruction and mentorship of C. Nyamutswa and R. Ngadze and completed his PPL in 2009

Getting the much needed experience to attain the Commercial Pilots Licence was a serious challenge as the country went into serious economic hardships and generally aviation is expensive but this did not deter him from pursuing his only dream of being a pilot.

With assistance from his mother, Mashonaland Flying Club and its members and his parish priest who is also a Pilot Fr. B. Conway he slowly managed to gain experience and each day he got closer to his dream.

After completion of his hours he went to Guthrie Aviation for his instrument rating and finally got his licence in 2014.

He briefly worked for Central Air Transport Services before joining Wilderness Air, he believes in anything hard work and faith will see any dream become a reality.

“For Me being a part of the Wilderness Air Family is a dream come true and will mould me to be a better responsible person”

My name is Anesu Jireh Musakwa, and I am a pilot at Wilderness Air Zimbabwe. I was born and raised in Harare, Zimbabwe, and I completed my High School at Watershed College- Marondera in 2009. I acquired my commercial pilot license at Cape Flying Services in the Western Cape, South Africa in May 2011. I started working for Wilderness Air Zimbabwe in April 2014 where I currently fly the Cessna C206 and Grand Caravan C208.

My passion for flying is inspired by my father who dreamt of becoming a pilot, but could not achieve this due to financial constraints. I am driven by my hard working parents and loving siblings who have been supportive in my flying career since the day I started flying. I enjoy working at Wilderness Air Zimbabwe because each day brings its own lessons and challenges that I do my best to prepare for.

Not only have I acquired better flying proficiencies, but my interpersonal skills have improved remarkably over the years. Being part of the Wilderness team has undeniably benefitted my career and personal life!

During my free time I enjoy watching various sports and going to the gym. I have developed an interest in wildlife photography which was made possible by flying into the beautiful world class Wilderness Safari Camps that I spend majority of my time in.

I wish to contribute in developing the wilderness Air Zimbabwe brand through great work ethic and corporate governance in a consistent manner. Do what you are passionate about and you will never fail!!

Operations Manager & Line Pilot

My name is Tinashe Sungano Chisewe, born on the 2nd of January 1983 to Maxwell and Siphiwe Chisewe. My first name Tinashe means “God with us” and my second name Sungano means “a special contract”, my parents made a request to God to have their second born as a boy and when he honoured their request they named me Sungano. We are three children in the family and I am the only boy flanked by two ladies, Kudzai and Runyararo.

I did my primary school education in Harare and for my secondary and high school l attended a school called Anderson Adventist High School located in in Zimbabwe’s midlands area in a town called Gweru. After completing my high school I went to attain a business administration degree majoring in finance, which is the family trade. I completed my studies and graduated in 2007.

During the time Zimbabwe was facing a serious financial melt down and was not able to acquire employment and would always dream of becoming a pilot from a young age, but due to lack of exposure and financial muscle it was not something I thought would happen, until one day I was escorting my sister to the airport and she was travelling back to work after a short visit. I mentioned my desire to become a pilot and she just said look for a school and tell me the costs and will help you.

The long and short of the story was that I found myself in Bloemfontein training at an institution called Westline Aviation and in 2011 I completed my commercial pilots licence only to land my first job with Wilderness air is April 2014. It has been a journey full of its ups and downs, but determination and perseverance pays.
