I turned my eyes toward the little aerobatic aircraft as it was departing from my hometown’s airfield. My heart was beating so fast that I knew something inside me has changed forever. I knew it right there that I wanted to be a pilot so I took my parents by surprise next morning over breakfast by telling them : I want to be a pilot!. I was so happy my parental embraced my idea and supported my decision. They simply said :Ok, let’s try this one also and there I was few days later departing on a small airplane with a great instructor towards my first flight ever. I was so blown away by that first flight that after our landing I have started making plans on how to achieve my Big Dream.
This story goes back when I was just 17 years old and the whole world around was not very sure a girl could do it or that was even possible, but for me there was no question ,it was only a destination.
As it happens with every single journey, it all starts with a lot of dreams, tons of ideas and detailed planning about how everything will become as I have imagined. Of course there is a big difference between what we dream and imagine and what really the road is but I feel in my case it was just meant to be up in the air.
I never asked myself or others if it is possible , I just did it.
I have never stopped flying ever since but it all changed about 2 years ago. It was for the best reason in the world to take a break so I could properly welcome my baby girl ,Sara, into this world.
