Why is sustainability in aviation so important to you?

I’m passionate about reducing aviation’s carbon footprint and believe it’s possible to reach net zero and even beyond.

It's about pushing the aviation industry towards carbon neutrality, using groundbreaking technologies that promise a sustainable future for aviation, and protecting the outdoor environments I love.

How do you balance life with work?

In my spare time, I like to meditate, spend time with my family and take part in international motorcycle races on my KTMs. I also compete in FIA and FIM World Cup Cross Country rallies, keep fit with HiT and teach Tae Kwon Do.
