Mauro Marchesan, an Italian pilot, first came to Guangdong in 2012. Once called “Canton” by the west, all he knew of Guangzhou was its rapidly growing prosperity and geographical proximity to Hong Kong. After 6 years working for China Southern Airlines, however, he has gradually become as familiar with the city as many locals are, using WeChat, Didi, dining with Chinese colleagues in Cantonese restaurants, and even learning Wing Chun from a martial arts master in Foshan, a southern city once home to both Ip Man and Bruce Lee.

The daily life of Pilot Mauro

Mauro accepted the position at China Southern Airlines while Europe was still under the spectre of the debt crisis.

Now as the captain of Airbus 330, Mauro has a full schedule every day. He holds a briefing with the aircrew hours before every flight to get familiar with his crew members, especially the first officer. As all staff members are friendly and can speak good English, Mauro stresses that they have no problems communicating.

In terms of domestic flights, Mauro flies between Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai as well as Chengdu while also flying international routes between Guangzhou and cities in Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Mauro regularly has to attend training and testing arranged by the company. Just the day after the interview, he was scheduled to go to Zhuhai for further training.
