Video: Our Interview With Pilot Shaesta Waiz


It was our pleasure to interview Shaesta Waiz, the youngest female pilot to solo circumnavigate the globe. To see the full video interview, click above.
The team caught up with Shaesta’s non-profit organization, Dreams Soar Inc., at this year’s NBAA-BACE conference in Las Vegas, just one week after the flight completed. Born in a refugee camp in Afghanistan, Shaesta’s mission is to promote STEM education to kids, and especially to inspire girls, worldwide
“Seeing the reactions of children from around the world as I landed in their country in a small single engine aircraft was the highlight of the global flight. Not only did I want to share with them that dreams do soar, but I also wanted to show them, providing proof that you can come from any set of circumstances and succeed in STEM”, Shaesta shared when she officially completed the global solo flight on October 4, 2017.
