Diego’s advice

“Get yourself aviation experts (and make sure the other party does as well) to hold your hand through the process: Brokers, tax advisors, insurance brokers, and of course aviation lawyers. It is important that you do not drag on negotiations on standardised terms in the industry.”


“I didn’t get into aviation, I was drowned by it! I applied for a training position at Iberia Airlines over a decade ago and from day one I loved it and haven’t looked back since then!”
