How Swissair gave Harry wings
As a boy, Harry Magallanes sold cigarettes on the streets of Manila. 'I was 10 years old when a government agency referred us to SOS Children's Village Manila in October 1989. Before that the street where me and my sister sold cigarettes to make ends meet was 'home' to us. At the SOS Children's Village I had a bed of my own, so did my sister and most importantly a mother who took care of us and loved us. Swissair sponsored our house and one day we had a visitor. She was a former flight attendant and her husband was a pilot. She asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. She was delighted when I replied 'a pilot'!'
Harry went on to study a BSc in Aircraft maintenance. Swissair then sponsored Harry's commercial pilot training. Today, Harry is happily married with a family of his own and thanks to Swissair's support, he fulfilled his childhood dream to become an airline pilot.
