However, She shared in an Interview with TOI, how she got fascinated by the profession, “I got fascinated by pilots. As I grew up, my fascination only increased and I finally landed up at Bombay Flying Club. ” Ayesha Aziz is the daughter of Abdul Aziz, who is a businessman from Worli, Mumbai. Abdul has always been supportive to help Ayesha achieve new heights, literally. He said to TOI, “I have always believed that knowledge and enquiry are keys to human progress. If my child had a dream which was achievable, I had to be part of the process and see that she realized this dream.” She expressed the feeling when she had her parents onboard for the first time, stating, “The first time I flew an aircraft with my parents on board, the greatest feeling I had was of independence ... a sense of liberation.” At NASA, she underwent training for a Space Shuttle Mission, specifically learning to manoeuvre spacecraft in microgravity, multi-axis training as well as extra-vehicular activity.  In 2012, she also underwent training to fly a MIG-29 jet at Russia’s Sokul airbase. ........Read more

The three founders bootstrapped the project with their savings, hoping funds will pour in from Kickstarter. “We did not have the to get a PR company to do marketing for us in the initial first few days of the campaign.
