Vanya is a SoCal native who has constantly spent his time looking out the window, seeing the arriving jets into LAX above him. After a certain period, he decided to explore aviation even more. After a trip to the Santa Monica Airport Museum, he fell in love with aviation and was determined to follow that. Vanya started training at Santa Monica Flyers at the start of 2018 for his Private Pilot’s License, and decided he wanted to spend even more time around airplanes by starting to work for the flight school. He hopes to achieve his life long dream of flying for the airlines, to transport passengers and explore the world.
