One of the best career decisions I made was to sign up for the Zino Aviation mentorship program and here is why. Firstly, I had the opportunity and privilege to work with and be mentored by someone I consider as one of the brightest minds in the industry. Captain Zino knows his stuff and is really passionate about transferring the knowledge he has to his mentees...I am now gainfully employed with one of Nigeria's leading airlines! Not only am I employed, but I am also doing very well as Captain Zino takes his time to make sure that all his mentees are above standard and delivering excellence every day.... Captain Zino was always available to me, making sure that no stone was left unturned and ensuring that I stayed ahead of the game at all times. I am really grateful that I was part of the mentorship program and I strongly recommend this program to anyone looking to set out for a career in aviation. The program is truly worth it!!!

"The Zino Aviation Masterclass is one of the best things that could happen to any aspiring pilot. Captain Zino impacted and imparted his tremendous knowledge to me in ways that have really enlightened me in this journey to becoming a pilot. Captain Zino is a great person with a wonderful personality who has the desire to impact knowledge onto others. I see greatness in him and in Zino Aviation. I'd recommend Captain Zino and this Program to any aspiring pilot out there. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER and you can only find that at Zino Aviation."

"If I was told at the beginning to attempt guessing how much knowledge I was expecting to receive after the end of this program, I would have given an underestimated answer! This program has been mind-blowing to be really really honest with anyone reading this comment. Every day went by on this course and I would think to myself, how did I get such a great opportunity. This is by far the most expensive knowledge I have ever been imparted with. Many want to be pilots and many more do not know the path to take. I was one of them. And as I speak, the bigger picture has been painted, and the path has been made straight! So many myths debunked! None of this would have been half possible without this program. No cap!!"

As someone who struggled for many years to secure a job in the aviation industry after finishing flight school, I cannot overstate the transformative impact of the mentorship program provided by Captain Zino. My journey to becoming a pilot was filled with challenges and a serious lack of direction. However, upon enrolling in the mentorship program, I quickly realized that I had finally found the guidance and support I desperately needed.

 

One of the most remarkable aspects of the program was the unparalleled network and connections that Captain Zino provided. Within weeks of signing up, I was offered a job at Bristow Helicopters, the largest helicopter company in the world. This was honestly a feat that seemed impossible prior to joining the program. This invaluable opportunity was made possible through Captain Zino’s extensive network, connections and industry insights. I wholeheartedly recommend the mentorship program to anyone aspiring to pursue a career in aviation. The support, resources and personalised guidance provided is unparalleled, making it a truly transformative experience for anyone seeking to navigate the many complexities of the aviation industry.

Zino is an awesome mentor!!! I learnt so so much from him in just 30 minutes, more than I have learnt watching a lot of videos on Instagram, YouTube and even pilot Vlogs. He provided helpful information on how to make the training process run smoothly, and most importantly, he was very realistic. It is worth the time!!! Every aspiring aviator needs this!!!

I look forward to having you as my mentor. Thank you, Zino!

Having the call with Zino was more relaxing than I expected. He is very patient to listen and understand all your questions and give answers.
