an inspirational pilot

With a passion for flying and a determination to succeed, Luxaviation UK’s Suzy Gautrey explains how she is fulfilling her dream as a full-time pilot.

Joining my local Air Cadets in London at 13 ignited a lifelong passion for aviation in me. I learnt the principles of flight, navigation and aircraft recognition there. Then at 16, I took my first flight, an amazing experience of aerobatics in a de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk. From that moment, I knew I wanted to be a pilot!
