Born and raised in the United Kingdom to parents who hail from Nigeria; the Thoughtful Pilot takes thousands of content customers to international destinations as a Commercial Pilot. His journey is one of trials, tribulations and sheer determination fuelled by a deeply rooted passion for what he does for a living; taking Boeing 737s to the skies!
Everyone can participate because they have already been factored in the Weight and Balance Allowances. Whatever your circumstances, don’t limit yourself. Go on that adventure; that’s what life is all about.
That passage has given him a different perspective on the meaning of life; it’s ups and downs and ultimately the role of faith in shaping one’s destiny.
Thoughtful Pilot has many stories to share, insights that have gripped and encouraged me to see beyond the ordinary into many possible adventures that life has to offer. When I first interviewed him back in 2016, I'd been focusing on the concept of being grounded. I yearned for dreams that had never taken off while mourning for the visions that I’d seen crush right before my eyes. However, our conversations gave me hope and courage to rise above my fears and doubts so that I too could spread my wings and soar; headed towards what I was created to do.
In his book called SOAR, T.D. Jakes states that “We must resist the temptation to give up hope and assume that only those people born with gilded wings of education and financial stability get to fly.”
I too had asked the Thoughtful Pilot about how his airline handled baggage and addressed weight issues. He gave an elaborate answer before sealing it with the following words:
“Everyone can participate because they have already been factored in the Weight and Balance Allowances. Whatever your circumstances, don’t limit yourself. Go on that adventure; that’s what life is all about.”
I hope that stories penned from the Pilot's Perspective will sharpen your vision and strengthen your resolve to set off against all the odds. It's never too late to go after your dreams!
