STUDENT RECRUITMENT MANAGER
Originally from Vancouver Canada, Raquel Fitzpatrick has known that she wanted to be involved in aviation since she was 5 years old. Lufthansa crew invited her up to the flight deck mid-flight to meet the pilots, and after checking out the cockpit and having the Captain pin a set of wings on her, 5-year-old Raquel dashed back to her parents to share her future dream!
That dream didn’t take flight until high school when a co-worker who happened to also be a flight instructor took her on her first-ever lesson in a Cessna 152. It was at that moment that Raquel was well and truly hooked on flying, and completed her PPL whilst also studying a Diploma in Business Administration and Aviation Management, followed later by a CPL.
Now in Australia, Raquel is currently looking to further her career in Aviation Management and help others to achieve their dreams, before stepping back into the pilot’s seat and hopefully one day finding herself as a Captain of an airliner.
