He said his dream of being a pilot for Cebu Pacific was short lived since it lasted only for 10 months.

On Instagram, Steve wrote, “When the pandemic took a big blow in our lives I never thought that it would hit me hard. As a news person, I thought I’ve witnessed too many bad times. In January of this year, I was released as First Officer after some grueling months of training. Only to realize it would be the shortest stint in my entire professional career. In a matter of 10 months, I lost it.”

Despite the unfortunate turn of events, Steve said he will always be thankful to the airline company.

“It’s a shortlived moment but I will always treasure the opportunity given by Cebu Pacific. I will be forever grateful to everyJUAN I’ve flown with. Ultimately, it’s a humbling experience,” Steve continued.
