Johana Ruby is a 24-year-old woman who lives in Perpignan, in the South of France.
Very early and following a gift flight she discovered her passion for aeronautics and headed for a professional pilot training at Aéropyrénées Flight Center.
The integrated course to obtain the ATPL license and the additional qualifications to become an airline co-pilot have a cost of about 100,000 € over two years.
To embark on her project, Johana had to take out a bank loan and work in parallel to meet her monthly payments and provide for her vital needs: to eat, to lodge, to move, etc.
Currently Johana is a cashier in a hypermarket that allows her to work every Saturday and Sunday and all other holidays.
The case of Johana reminds us that the profession of pilot can open more to women and that, more and more, it is not reserved only for young people from wealthy families, including in the most developed countries as France.
