Happy Aviation Day!! Did you know that in 1939, President Teddy Roosevelt declared today as National Aviation Day. The day also coincides with Orville Wright’s birthday!

Therefore, the Paratus crew would just like to show gratitude to all pilots and a shout out to all of the pilots that participated in our interviews.
