PORT VILA, Vanuatu (September 28, 1997 - PACNEWS)---Vanuatu's national flag carrier, Air Vanuatu, soon will have its first local pilot.

He is Ron Sumsum, who earlier was the first Ni-Vanuatu pilot of the local domestic airline, Vanair.

Sumsum currently is in Australia obtaining an Australian pilot's license which will permit him to pilot Air Vanuatu jets.

He is expected to leave Vanair and join Vanuatu's international airline in October.

Meanwhile, the Melanesian country's first local female pilot, Amy Taurakoto, has been promoted to Captain by Vanair.
