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.

What did you like most about CFA?

CFA is like family, which is the most important thing for international students who travel alone, far from their families.

What did you like most about living in the United States?

The comfort and all the things that the beautiful city of San Diego has to offer.

What plans do you have for your newly acquired flight certifications?

I hope to fly as a first officer for my country’s airlines.

How has your time at CFA changed your life?

This was a great experience socially and professionally. I will never forget CFA and all the great people that work there.


"CFA was a great experience for me. I had everything to take my first steps in aviation. I'm now a Boeing 737 First Officer!"
