Not Just For Me, Also For Mom

Ever since I could remember, airplanes have always been so fascinating to me - all I wanted to do was ride on them as a passenger. Lucky enough I was born in Newark, New Jersey, close to the Newark Liberty International Airport, where there were airplanes taking off and landing at all times of day. As a kid, I would often ask my mom to take me to see them!

A Decade's Wait

Have you ever wondered what will you be doing in the next 5-to-10 years’ time? Or have you ever looked back a few years and wondered if you have chosen the right path to success? How about those occasions where you sat down and asked yourself "So what's next in life?" I did this not too long ago, on 30 April 2017, a date I will never forget. Let me tell my story of a new beginning.

Hi my name is Bruno Medeiros, I started as a cadet at L3 Airline Academy in Florida in January of 2017. I got my Private Pilot License in a part 61 school in Tampa, so I started from the Instrument Rating course and it took me less than one year to graduate from the Professional Pilot Program. After that I was hired as a flight instructor at L3, and throughout the year of 2018 I was able to get my CFII and MEI licenses. My experience so far as a Flight Instructor has been amazing and rewarding, I feel like I have grown as a professional along with my students.
