Comments from the Company

I first came to Japan at the age of 18. I engaged in a number of businesses over the years prior to age 30, when I began to devote myself to building a career as an aviator, acquiring a range of pilot and flight instructor qualifications starting from Boeing 737s and 747s. Then, as a private jet pilot, I flew customers all over the world. In those days, the civil aviation sector was facing an intensifying pilot shortage. In order to improve this situation from a long-term viewpoint, I thought that it is essential to arouse young people's interest in flying. I therefore focused on flight simulator service, a pioneering business in Japan that can provide opportunities for that purpose.
