We recently talked to Ryan who is currently in the final stages of his training where he chose Option B of the Integrated Flight Deck Programme.

Alexandra O'Loughlin02 Apr 2018

When did you decide you wanted to become a pilot?

I was about 6. The seed was planted when I learnt there was a pilot in my family two generations back flying in the 1950’s!
