Welcome Captain Solomon Quainoo to Go Africa Executive Board!


Go Africa LLC is pleased to announce the addition of Captain Solomon Quainoo to our Executive Board of Directors with immediate effect.  It is our good fortune to have an individual of Captain Quainoo’s caliber join us in leading Go Africa successfully into the future. We are very pleased that he has accepted our offer to join our Executive.


Moving forward, Go Africa LLC and Go Africa Trading will face some unique and motivating challenges. The assurance that we will overcome these challenges is strengthened by the kind of leadership qualities our Executive Board members possess. Collectively, the balance of experience and education on our Executive will serve to propel us well into the future with good momentum.


Captain Quainoo currently owns two new logistics companies in Ghana and is poised to extend his influence in Ghana and worldwide.  Go Africa is pleased to have him join our board as we seek to grow the business of processing and exporting from Ghana, and the wider West Africa, agricultural products such as cashews, peanuts, cocoa, coffee and other local produce.


Solomon is a Ghanaian born national and is also an airline captain flying the biggest passenger aircraft, Airbus A380 with Emirates Airlines.  Mr. Quainoo was in 2018 selected to be the captain of the first A380 flight to Ghana. This was the biggest aviation event in Africa in 2018 causing him to become a national and continental hero for Ghana and the whole of Africa.


His subsequent interview and publications in various international media, has inspired many all over the world and he is currently being asked to speak on various events around the world to inspire young and old.  He’s featured in the Ghana Civil Aviation website as a national hero.


He has worked for 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.


Captain Solomon Quainoo has managed and led various projects at British Airways 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 aircrafts.  He also helped introduce one of the modern instrument landing systems, Microwave Landing Systems (MLS) at Heathrow and Munich airports, configuring a Boeing 757 for the trials. In addition, he introduced a market management matrix for the engineering supply chain with huge cost savings to the company.


As a pilot by profession, Captain Quainoo has flown aircrafts including, Embraer 135/145; Boeing 737-300, 400, 500; Airbus A319, A320, A321, A330-200, A340-300, A340-500 and currently flying the A380-800.  He has also worked as an instructor, operating all the British Airways simulators including, A320 family, B737 family, B757/B767 family, B777 family and B747 family.  He was part of the British Airways customer first team, instructing on its mobile simulators on air shows around the United Kingdom.


Mr. Quainoo attended the University of Ghana for his undergraduate bachelor of science (BSc) majoring in Mathematics and Physics and has a masters in engineering (MEng) in aerospace engineering at Kingston University in the United Kingdom.  He was trained at Oxford Aviation for his airline pilot qualification becoming one of the best students of his course.  He has since been selected to be the face of Oxford aviation in various international aviation magazines including Flight International and was part of a select few involved in seminars designed to coach and guide aspiring pilots.


He has been involved in various mentoring programs with Reuters in the United Kingdom and is setting up a mentoring group in Ghana to inspire young black people in particular, and others in general.


We are happy to welcome Captain Solomon Quainoo to our Executive Board and look forward to his valuable contribution.

    As Andrew Carnegie rightly said that “Men are developed the same way gold is mined. When gold is mined, several tons of dirt must be moved to get an ounce of gold; but one doesn’t go into the mine looking for dirt—one goes in looking for the gold.”

    And yes, I believe that your arrival is going help add to the excellence of Go Africa.
