He credits this fact to be part of the reason to his precocious success in his piloting career. His father, Christopher Neyor, was former president of National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).
Neyor graduated сum laude in 2007. “I chose aviation management because it allowed me to mix my first passion, aviation, with something else I was interested in, business,” he said.
