“Definitely do it. At first, I was a little unsure about it,
but it’s been one of the best weeks of my life. I don’t remember the last time
I had this much fun. It’s truly an amazing experience. Definitely apply!”
“For me the interesting part is, you get to see the layers
of aviation. We would say ‘there’s the pilot, there’s the person in the tower’
but there are so many people in between and there are so many career
opportunities. I feel that I can go anywhere.”
