Date: 09 Mar 2022 07:18

Join Dr. Adnan Branbo in the 7th Episode of AVIAPRENEURS featuring Mr. Dawit Lemma! Dawit Lemma is aviapreneur with more than 20 years of experience in the aviation industry. Dawit is the founder and CEO of Krimson Aviation. Throughout his career Dawit has worked in sales, operations and in management functions. He also worked for an airport, FBO, airline, aviation logistics companies, aviation magazine and non-for-profit aviation industry organization till he finally started his own business Krimson Aviation, which currently provides aviation services for aircraft operators flying to Ethiopia and East Africa. Dawit is also a board member of AfBAA, the African Business Aviation Association. To my surprise Dawit also used to fly King Air 200 and Pilatus PC-12 on contact basis.

Watch this episode to know Mr. Dawit’s answers to the following questions:

  • Dawit, wow, what an amazing career. You have left nothing in the aviation industry you didn’t try! Did you dream of that one day? Tell us how you started your aviation career?
  • Did you change jobs from one aviation enterprise to another on purpose, as you wanted to try the whole supply chain to see the full picture?
  • Did that experience benefit you when setting up your aviation business? Can you share with us more information about Krimson Aviation?
  • You’re born in Ethiopia, but you lived in the US and Switzerland. What made you come back to your home country to setup you first aviation business, rather that continuing your career in the countries where you grow up and studied?
  • One of the interesting things I noted in your career is that besides aviation, you have setup other business outside aviation, which is in marketing? And recently you announced establishing a bank? How did aviation benefit from that experience or vice versa?
  • Krimson Aviation and Dawit Lemma are active in Africa, as you specialize in aviation in this promising continent, especially being a board member of AfBAA. Can you share with us your views on the challenges and opportunities of business aviation and the airline industry in Africa?
  • You recently gave a scholarship to your university in the US? Do you consider it necessity to payback to the society that helped you start and grow?
  • What advice you give to aviapreneurs willing to do business in Africa?

All of this and more on the 7th episode of AVIAPRENEURS!
