First Solo Flight of Student Pilots James Christian Dizon and Jan Paolo Ravago

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll be among the stars” has been SPL James Christian Dizon’s guiding principle in life. On May 25, 2021, he never missed the opportunity to be with the skies as he successfully achieved his 1st solo flight using RP-C8061. He was released by Capt. Elcid Tolentino o/a 0900H. SP Dizon is an alumnus of University of the Philippines Los Banos and took BS in Applied Physics. Our 23-year-old soloist is from Quezon City and is fond of reading news/current events/manga, playing online games and watching online movies/series. He decided to go to flying school because he wanted to pursue his ultimate dream of becoming an airline pilot. He sees himself flying an Airbus plane in the coming years.
A believer of “Nothing worth having comes easy” just worthily experienced one of the most memorable days in his flying career. It was not easy but SP Jan Paolo Ravago victoriously had his 1st solo flight using RP-C1859 on May 25, 2021. He was released by Capt. Rets Briones o/a 0930H. Our soloist took BS in HRIM-Culinary Arts at De La Salle College of Saint Benilde and is currently resides in Quezon City. According to our 24-year-old student pilot, he was inspired by the pilots he worked with back when he was still a flight attendant. Someday, he wants to become an airline pilot and a chef and owner of a restaurant given that he is most interested in cooking and anything that is fitness related. SP Ravago mentioned that after a few years, he sees himself as a Flight Instructor helping aspiring students achieve what was once his dream and working his way up to become an airline pilot.
The Leading Edge Family would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to SP Dizon and SP Ravago for achieving the most significant milestone of their life. We, at LEIAAI, are always rooting for them and believe that they will manifest their dream very soon. Kudos also to proud and very supportive parents of our soloists.
