Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson to help set up African airline

The rock legend’s aviation company is taking a role developing Air Djibouti, the flag carrier of the East African nation. We here at AudioInferno love hearing these kind of stories and we hope that more big acts do the same for the continent at large.


“Djibouti is uniquely placed to provide a hub for investment from Europe, the Middle East and Asia into Africa,” Dickinson said. “By providing full airline support and project implementation to Air Djibouti, Cardiff Aviation will bring a wealth of industry expertise and capability to one of the most exciting aviation markets in the world to spearhead growth in a region with tremendous potential.”

Dickinson is a fully qualified pilot who has worked for commercial airlines during Maiden downtime, and piloted the band’s jet during world tours.
