My dream of being a pilot started at a very young age. In my Gr 2 class we had to write a letter to ourselves of what we wanted to do when we grow up. Back then I wanted to be a fighter pilot. Ever since I have had an obsession w ith jets. As finances were tough, I saved every cent to do my Cabin Crew license. Star Air saw something in me and gave me the opportunity even though I was wear a crazy bright tie for the interview. Star Air Cargo gave me the ticket to the aviation world. Star Air Cargo was a family environment, who equipped me for my next move to Emirates as a Cabin Crew member. During this time I saved up enough to do my commercial license. The relentless pursuit to finish was cemented by Star Air Cargo and my absolute love for aviation.
I started my career at Star Air Cargo as an operation assistant. Star Air Cargo gave me the opportunity to realise my dream of becoming a 8737 pilot. The interesting part of the job was flying to different destinations all the time. These challenging flights certainly gave me the competitive edge when applying to airlines.
There are rare moments in one's flying career when you get the opportunity to kickstart your career. For me this opportunity was Star Air Cargo. During my 5 years with the company I was fortunate to receive excellent training and also gain a wide variety of experiences, through operating for and working closely with various carriers in Southern Africa. For me Star Air Cargo lay the foundation for the next step to wide-body airliners and I will forever be grateful to the company and people who helped and mentored me.
I have had the pleasure of working at Star Air for 6 wonderful years. It was just the beginning of my flying career, I could not have asked for a better company to launch my career. I was always excited to go to work and felt like I was home at 35 000 Ft. Star Air became my family. Every charter was an adventure! Every experience helped me flourish into the person I am today. My experience at Star Air Cargo helped me effortlessly blend into the Emirates culture. To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who aviation, the sky is home.
