Looking to the Future
As Flyers of Bilgi Aviation Club, we know that aviation is there with us in many parts of our lives and we try to overcome the bias people have together with all our fellows who want to walk this path with us. It is of great importance for us that people actually understand how critical the aviation industry is. In a world where everyone lives together and aviation technology expands and develops greatly, aviation will always take place on the top for us.
