And just think that it all started one day, when a 9-year-old Łukasz was getting on a plane for the first time in his life and a pilot waved to him from his cockpit window… At that very moment Łukasz decided that he would also take a sit in the cockpit one day. His passion developed slowly but steadily: he read about aviation a lot, often flew planes in pilot training flight simulator on his computer and every day he watched planes passing over his house, wondering where they were flying from and how many passengers they carried. At the age of 19, Łukasz got his first pilot license. Today flying brings him a sense of freedom and joy that he can find fulfillment, improve his skills and build experience.
