“I’ve imagined flying into St. Lucia as a little boy and it’s now become a reality,” said Neil Justin.
Yesterday afternoon First Officer Neil Justin of Jet Blue landed at UVF for the very first time. Although it was an overcast day, this historical moment made the weather seemed anything but gloomy!
Neil was born in the United States of America of St. Lucian parentage (they are Soufrierians) and it was always his dream to become a pilot
In 2006 he began flying with Expressjet Airlines for three years, then he became a secondary crew member at CAE Simuflite. Two years later he became employed with Skywest Inc as a First Officer for four years and fours month. In 2015 he then landed his present job with Jet Blue.
First Officer Justin also spearheads a project called “Inspiring the Youth” together with a local Aviation group where he visits schools on the island to speak to students about his life as a pilot and working for JetBlue.
These speeches also includes what it is like to have a passion, pursuit of purpose and ways to overcome obstacles to their dreams.
