Friday Fabulous Flyers...
Happy Birthday Alex!!!
Today is Alex’s 17th Birthday so I asked him who is most motivating person in Aviation history is for our Friday Flyer, and he said....
“Tough one, I have too many. But I have a clichè answer: The Wright Brothers. Imagine when they saw birds flying... Can humans fly? They proved that nothing is impossible. They hadn't given up on flying. Because of them, I knew I was born to fly, that my soul belonged to the skies, and the airplanes are a part of me.
They created something that I could fall in love with, my passion. Commitment, leadership, brainstorming, physics, mathematics, ambition, courage, strong minds, strong souls, confidence, trust, challenges, the sky and the air, the magic! They had all these characteristics, and I don't know what would our aviation situation be with out them, despite Santos Dumont also did the "same" invention after the Wright Bros. Maybe I have to thank them?
Imagine how complex it was to build something that could fly heavier than air! All airlines and airplane manufacturers exists mainly because of them. It is a true example of never giving up, even if you are experiencing big problems!”
And there you have it, from the mouth of the birthday boy. Please take a moment to wish Alex a Happy Birthday!!! And tell us who your most motivating aviation person in history is.
Today... Paris. Minneapolis. Seattle.
Enjoy the journey! I'll be home soon.
