According to his father, Anas used to collect plane models during his childhood days, and when he saw him in the pilot uniform he used to ask him when he will wear this kind of uniform, when will he fly giant birds in the sky, how do pilots eat food in the sky, how pilots breath at the altitude of 37,000 ft. His questions seemed to be childish, but the excitement which his father had seen in his eyes for this profession made him realize that in future, he will become a successful pilot. Anas first visit in the cockpit with his father was in the year 1995 when he was 12 years old; from that day he got more attached to the planes.

Now whatever was in his mind was on the paper, he slowly gave his dream wings, a reality in this world. He started drawing planes on paper sheet even his family advised him to become a designer after seeing his jet planes design. But he focused on his goal and in this decision his family supported him immensely. Whenever someone asked his parent’s what Anas will become in the future, they proudly said that he would become a Pilot. Anas believes to live a life which is a mix of adventure, knowledge and learning new things that’s why his hobbies are traveling, camping, photography, reading aviation books, flying airplanes, swimming and playing guitar.
