Audrey Maame Esi Swatson, Ghana's youngest ever licensed pilot has narrated her experience of flying for the first time as a commercial pilot.
Though she obtained her commercial license in 2018, the young lady had her first experience as an assistant pilot when she was only 18 years.
As exciting as this might sound, Audrey Maame Esi Swatson’s first encounter was not quite pleasant.
Myjoyonline.com reports that in a recent radio interview, Swatson recounted her moment of joy at the thought of moving an aircraft but that joy soon turned into discomfort on her introductory flight.
She is quoted as saying: “I was really scared and I couldn’t imagine myself adding force to it for the aircraft to be off the ground.
It was nice in the beginning but later in the flight for my first day, I was feeling airsick. I was sweating. I wanted to really throw up."
She however managed to overcome the discomfort to successfully complete her maiden flight with motivation from her mum who was also on board.
She added: “But then after we came back, it didn’t come out. I felt better. My mummy asked if [I would continue]. I was like yeah."
Swatson is now hoping to improve and become a world-class pilot. For now, she is just enjoying the fact that she has achieved her dreams.
