Airport / Airline Management and Flight Operations



The field of aviation has intrigued me since I was very young. I find the different areas of the aviation industry, including air traffic control, airport management, airline operations, and, certainly, piloting an aircraft, to be exciting areas to build a fulfilling career in. My positive sentiments towards an aviation career have been partly influenced by the lives of some of my relatives who are pilots and airport managers. When one witnesses such people work in mentally and physically exhausting jobs, and yet, sees in their eyes the permanent fulfillment they get from it, it is hardly unimpressive. Besides my enthusiasm for career in aviation, I also trust that I possess the requisite personal qualities and skills to be successful at it. I believe that I am a very hardworking person with acute practical and people skills that I have acquired over the years working in a variety of jobs that hone such abilities. I also believe I am a quick thinker, an apt multitasker, and a problem solver. Some of the most satisfactory moments in my working life have been those when I was called upon to tackle an issue that needs immediate attention, for which I had to quickly mobilize, coordinate with, and consult relevant persons in order to produce an effective solution. I believe that the aforesaid qualities and skills are essential in a person for a successful career in Aviation industry.
