One-eyed pilot, Shinji Maeda, will fly around the world to give a motivational speech.
When he was 18 years old, he lost his eyesight in one eye after getting involved in a car accident. He had to face the fact that by law he could never pursue his dream of being a pilot in Japan. However, he made it happened by overcoming the tragedy. He became a pilot and now he enjoys sharing his love and passion for flying with his student pilots as a flight instructor. He has been carrying an inspirational message out to people and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan.
Now, it’s time to go beyond and deliver this message to many more people across the world. It is happening. We believe it’s possible.
To deliver inspiration and hope to more people in this world.
While finding the inner strength to leave my family in Japan, and achieve my dreams, I discovered that sharing my journey and encouraging and motivating others to achieve their dreams, especially for young people, became my other true passion. Spreading “YOU ARE POSSIBLE” has become my mission. Since 2008 I’ve been giving motivational speeches to thousands of young people in the US and Japan. I’ve flown to most of these talks on a commercial jet.
This time will be different. I’ll be flying around the world and giving motivational speeches from here to your countries sharing this aviation experience. I’ll go beyond and deliver my message to many more people across the world. Impossible? NO, not at all. I AM POSSIBLE….and THIS IS POSSIBLE...!
