Celebrated Emirates pilot Solomon Quainoo who flew world’s largest airbus joins McDan Aviation

Celebrated pilot Captain Solomon Kwakye Quainoo just joined Ghana’s foremost aviation service provider, McDan Aviation Services. Congratulations, captain.

In 2018, the former Emirates pilot flew the world’s largest airbus “Airbus A380”, making him the first pilot to successfully land the biggest passenger flight at the Kotoka International Airport to commemorate the opening of Terminal 3.

Captain Solomon Quainoo shared his big news via his Twitter page.


Started in 2017, McDan Aviation operates Ghana’s first private airline hanger service at the Terminal 1 section of the Kotoka International Airport.

Captain Solomon Quainoo has worked for some of the world’s leading airlines; including British Airways (IAG) and BMI as an airline pilot, and prior to that as a design-engineer for British Airways’ engineering and supply chain.

An Oxford Aviation Training School alum, Captain Quainoo has also led a variety of British Airways projects, including aircraft interior re-configuration, introducing the first flat-bed seats in all long-haul aircraft, and the introduction of new crew rest in Boeing 777 aircraft.

In an interview with Accra-based radio Starr FM, he stated that an aviation model that prioritises private investor participation should be adopted, with the state providing an enabling environment as pertains in other jurisdictions – such as what Dubai did with Emirates Airlines.

“Capt. Quainoo will undoubtedly bring onboard his wealth of experience to the company, and invariably work for development of the aviation idustry in the country and on the continent,” a spokesperson from McDan Aviation said.

Captain Quainoo expressed pride and delight in the next step of his career and the opportunity to give back to the nation.
