Tell me the story of when you knew you wanted to fly:

I have always wanted to be a pilot, for as long as I can remember. My uncle is an airline captain, so he has been my role model and has motivated me my whole life. I enjoy watching the sky and maybe one of the main reasons that I chose this career was to look at this amazing sky from a different angle.
