Jim, Head of Helicopter Pilot Training and Standards

"We found a place where we are happy and contribute to our community."

Celebrating 10 years with Saudi Aramco, Jim says one of the things that really stands out is how fast the time has gone. "There are rewards every day. The years slip by and before you know it you're passing milestones in your career."

As the head of Helicopter Pilot Training and Standards, Jim is responsible for developing and maintaining pilot training programs and conducting proficiency exams for 70 Saudi Aramco pilots. "It's a position that requires extensive knowledge of all matters involving the operation of our helicopters. I have professional satisfaction from bringing in a completely new fleet of helicopters between 2005 and 2010."

Jim's wife, Asa, works as a personal fitness trainer and lifeguard, and is a volunteer coach for the youth swim team in Ras Tanura. They're both triathletes and have competed in far-flung events such as the Cape Argus Cycle Tour in South Africa, the Stockholm Marathon and Austria Half-Ironman, as well as regular participation in local community events, which are well-supported by the company. Their children, are also very active in sports such as swimming and diving.

Like most expats, Jim and his family have developed a passion for travel. "Our vacations are all about finding new adventures together," Jim says. In addition to Asa's native Sweden, their list of destinations includes Spain, Scotland, Morocco, Vietnam, Cambodia, Croatia, Australia and Mozambique, as well as diving trips to the Grand Cayman and Seychelles islands.

"We've met some really great people and have had some of the most memorable experiences that would have never happened otherwise."
