On the Wings of a Dream

I'm an airline pilot for a major airliner in Mexico. We're more than 1,300 pilots, and I was chosen to be the captain on a customer delivery flight of a brand-new Boeing 737-800.

When my 18-year-old nephew learned about this unique privilege, I'm sure it was the necessary reason to convince him to become a pilot. Today he is flying for a Mexican low-cost carrier.
