La cină

She was a journalist, she worked in PR, she played music in the club, she organized events, she did everything that allowed her to earn a living and to fulfill her dream, that of becoming a pilot. Her passion comes from childhood, when her father took her to his work place.

Where was her first flight, how much does it cost to go to aviation school, what do pilots do when they reach cruising speed, what can you see if you fly at night, what an unwanted event she had in her pilot life and if Betty’s head in the clouds, find out in our show: “La cină”.

DIASPORA ÎN DIRECT – Interview with Beatrice Filip

A lucrat în radio, presă scrisă și televiziune dar visul ei a fost să piloteze avioane.

Deși mulți din breasla jurnaliștilor, nu o susțineau, ba chiar glumeau pe seama dorinței ei, iată că ea a facut exact ce își planificase.

Și-a notat mici bilețele în camera ei pe care își scria dorințele, și încet-încet a mers spre ele.

Și a învins! Este “First Officer” la Turkish Airlines și trăiește în Istanbul.

Extra benefit for the pilot.

I am glad that I had the pleasure to meet you, and to participate together in the preparation of conversion company in Turkey. You are one of the bravest and most ambitious women, who had the strength to graduate from aviation school and to work side by side with men. The experience you have gained in life makes you succeed in everything you set out to do and often outperform yourself with the projects you complete. Good luck in everything you do, clear sky.

Amazing video guide.

My Dear Student Beatrice, it is a pleasure to recommend you. From my point of view, you are a strong woman with a special character, who always faces any challenge. You have good CRM skills, and every time I saw you, you are working hard and trying to improve yourself. What is especially important for me as an instructor and captain is that you always respect the rules and you are a good friend and a colleague, always with sense of humor. Your project is amazing, and the E-book is great for all the cadets that are dreaming to fly an aircraft. They will find useful information about Body Language, what gestures to not make in the interview, how you should tackle the Human Resources interview and Technical Questions. Good luck to everyone, and clear sky!

My dear colleague,

It was a pleasure to know you and specially to fly with you. From the very first flight, I had a feeling that you are a wonderful person with a beautiful soul. Always there to help, friendly, and joyful. During our flights together, you have always shown professionalism and bravery. Remain the brave and ambitious women you are. I read this book, and I watched the video CBT - it is real and valuable information for pilots who are going for an aviation interview, and also a good guide for real life cockpit management. The prices are good, compared with other books or websites and the information is amazing!

It helps pilots a lot!

I am proud of the project Aviation Journeys that you did in 6 months. You worked hard, and the junior pilots who aspire to a job in aviation will be happy to find in the book details about the technical interview, I read the questions, and they are all what they need, if they know Boeing manuals. There are questions that even if you go to fly 777, or Airbus 330, you need to know. And at Human Resources it helps pilots a lot, because they will find in detail exactly what they must answer, how to behave, what to wear, how to arrange, to be strong and get the interview. It’s also a wonderful guide for the pilots who want to change their company and try a new challenge.

Une source d'inspiration.

Je te remercie pour cet ouvrage que le jeune pilote que j'ai été aurait apprécié lire afin de le guider. Il est le fruit d'un travail méthodique, de profondes recherches et d'une solide expérience. Grace à ton livre, nous bénéficions tous de l'exemple d'une pilote expérimentée au parcours exemplaire. Tu as travaillé si dur pour ça. J'admire et salue cette belle initiative qui est à l'image de tes valeurs de partage et d'entraide. Les jeunes pilotes disposent désormais d'un outils pratique et précieux qui leur permettra d'avancer sereinement vers leurs objectifs. À titre personnel je te remercie pour ton attitude positive. Tu as été la première à me soutenir et me transmettre tes conseils. Cela m'a permis de garder le cap face aux intempéries et de réaliser un rêve d'enfant. Je ne doute pas que ton livre aidera également d'autres rêveurs et sera une source d'inspiration.

I am fascinated!

As a TV host I would always make a story about this unique project, the life of a pilot at a job interview, what he needs to know, and what he needs to answer, but also the path he must take from small planes to Boeing 737, or Airbus. I am not a pilot, but I have traveled thousands of miles as a sports fan, and journalist, and I am fascinated by what Beatrice wrote in the book, you can find information on Human Error, CRM, Incapacitation, Terrorism, Boeing 737 Max, and other useful information. And I like to mention the quality of the CBT videos, due to talented Maria Petrica, a professional producer and video editor.

A great project!

I am proud that we had the opportunity 10 years ago to work together in Romania at the biggest charity events that we organized to help orphaned children. I wish you to further fulfill all your dreams. You have proven that you can achieve whatever you set out to do in life. You were a good journalist and now you are a pilot and you are writing books. When it comes to friends and friendship, many leave, few remain. You are among those who remain, a strong woman with a lot of dreams and big ambitions.
