“My first birthday present for my first birthday was a toy plane, and I think this was the point I fell in love with aviation. I later spoke to a Virgin Atlantic pilot and told him I would love to be a pilot, but I was not smart enough. He explained to me that that simply wasn’t true, and with his encouragement and support, I started to pursue my pilot training.”
