Pay it forward! This is the vision on which GoBlue Aviation was founded. Even though it is a business, I wanted to create a daily win-win environment for my team and especially for the people that decide to use our services.
My life gravitated around aviation ever since I can remember. Flying for different airlines, in different countries, clocking thousands and thousands of miles and flight hours to every continent in the World, gave me the opportunity to meet the most interesting people and be asked some of the most interesting questions. The most common one was of course, “How can I become a pilot?”
With the amount of information available at the moment, it can be pretty confusing for someone to decide which is the best option for them to start their dream in aviation. When most of us were starting out pursuing our careers, there were only a few places to go, the Military or the local flying school. Most of us didn’t have any guidance so we just did what everyone else did. We either joined the Military, spending tons of money or, those with a less fortunate financial situation were forced to give up on fulfilling their dreams. If you decide now that you want to become a pilot, overwhelmed is not enough to describe how you would feel after starting your research in order to find the best place for yourself.
This is where we show up and help you. The GoBlue concept was born a few years ago in a key moment of my life. After passing through a life-changing experience and hearing my doctor saying that I was given a second chance, the following scene suddenly appeared in my head. While on a deadhead flight, I had a random conversation with the passenger sitting next to me. After a few hours of conversation I found out that she wanted to become a pilot. By the end of the flight we came up with a plan to start her flight training while working. Today she is flying for a major airline. The feeling of helping someone with their dreams was amazing! I realized in that moment that this is what I want and what I have to do. I want to be worthy of the chance I was given and the way to do that is if I pay it forward by giving back.
With a little bit of guidance and a personal touch is all it took! Our team at GoBlue share that vision with similar stories and our community continues to grow everyday. We believe that doing what you love and if you do it with a strong desire of helping people around you, great things and careers can be accomplished. We are here for you.
