Default Looking for any exciting flying

I am currently in college and trying to pursue a career in aviation. Before I get settled into a career I would like to do some exciting type of flying. What I am looking for is any information on flying cargo in places like africa or the Caribbean (what are some companies). Does anyone fly for the UN?

Try flying skydivers, Alaska 135, night freight, or flight instructing among others. For info on overseas flying, you might also check out the PPRuNe website. Look it up, lots of info on Africa "bush" flying.
Good luck. Hope it doesn't get too exciting!

I have some ideas, but need to know flight times and experience (there are still some ops for low-timers, but I'm not going to waste my time posting unless I have an idea of what you're eligible for)....

Nicely put Nic. . . I've taken to answering pm's only as of late, and since nobody pm's me I have a lot of free time. (yea, yea, keep your comments to yourselves)

Not that you're not serious wearinwings, and good luck if you continue to pursue the dark side, you'll have a blast.
