Is this the best job in Dubai?

The Seawings plane is a regular fixture in the Dubai skyline.

The sea plane is based at Jebel Ali and Dubai Creek and tours the city taking in all the biggest sights and attractions.

As well as the incredible views, the Seawings pilot also has a story to tell. What’s it like piloting the most famous plane in Dubai? How did his aviation career bring him to Dubai and what does he love about his job?

Watch as we fly with the Seawings chief pilot, Rob McGechan…

There is no doubt Rob is at home in the air circling Dubai each day with a plane full of passengers, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t be happy piloting a plane around one of the most exciting city’s in the world?

Having spent his entire career flying small aircraft, Dubai is the latest international city that Rob calls home.

And having been in the city for 6 years, he has noticed the vast change the city is continually taking as he flies overhead, from the construction of the Dubai Canal to Dubai Creek Harbour taking shape.

With Rob as your pilot, we fully recommend getting up in the air and experiencing Dubai from the skies… at the very least, a water take-off and landing is well worth it!
