AIRINC'S Globetrotters: Somewhere between a dream job and an exhausting reality

Many people dream of having a job that includes some international travel. AIRINC surveyors get more than “some” - they spend about half of the year on the road. While they get the opportunity to travel to far-flung locations like Stanley, Falkland IslandsPort Vila, Vanuatu, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Lusaka, Zambia, they are in these locations for only three to five days at a time and must therefore plan their days carefully so that they are able to gather the data required.
