Iran

Went to see a man about a job in Iran yesterday. It's an interesting one, but under the present circumstances, I'm not falling over myself to go there.

I'm going to see UKTI this morning and discuss, and then send in my quote afterwards, once I have quantified the risks and seen how well they can be controlled.

One of the things I certainly won't be doing is taking any internal flights, despite the prospective client's protestations.

It is well known that the internal carrier's fleet is ageing and poorly maintained due in part due to lack of parts as a result of US sanctions. They are consequently rated 85 of a possible 88 in the world's airline accident ratings.
