She was inspired to choose the machismo career. Aviation had rare female pilots at that time. Aspiring Precious turned into a mother at the age of 17. Her mother left for her heavenly abode at that time, leaving woeful Precious alone. She subsided her dreams to give her undivided attention to her daughter.Years later, in Dubai, she utilized the opportunity to work with Qatar Airways as a cabin crew member.
Her dreams again took flight in her mind. She served as a cabin crew member at Qatar Airways. Soon, she got promoted to senior cabin member. The promotion gave her confidence and inspired her to pursue studies to be an aviator in 2017. Precious is currently an Airline Transport Pilot License holder.It’s the World’s highest level of Aircraft Pilot License from 43 Air schools in South Africa.
