Inspiration With Irving Oil, Our Transatlantic Partnership
Dreams Soar would like to recognize our Signature Flight Leg partner, Irving Oil, who generously supported Shaesta in preparation for the transatlantic crossing. Ninety years ago, Charles A. Lindbergh, claimed history by being the first person to complete a solo transatlantic flight between North America and mainland Europe when he flew nonstop from New York to Paris. Fate would have it that Shaesta completed the same feat later this week! Not wanting to miss this special moment, Dreams Soar would like to present, as a surprise to the Irving Oil team, our sponsors, partners, supporters, and not in the least, pilot Shaesta Waiz, a special message from Erik Lindbergh, grandson of Charles and Anne Morrow, on behalf of the Lindbergh family legacy to commemorate Shaesta’s transatlantic flight. Watch the full video here!

We would like thank Irving Oil for making dreams soar, and hosting Shaesta while in St. John’s!

Just A Hop, Skip, and Jump!

Dreams Are Soaring at the U.S. Capitol, Washington, D.C.
Early this month, Dreams Soar board of directors chair, Lyndse Costabile, and advisory council member, Veronica Carpio, facilitated and organized a multitude of industry and legislative meetings in Washington, D.C. Over a five-day period, they had the opportunity to connect with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), General Aircraft Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA), National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), National Air Transportation Association (NATA), and Departments of Education and Transportation, to advocate for the Dreams Soar mission. They also met with Dreams Soar premier FBO partner, Signature Flight Support, to discuss plans for the DCA outreach event to be held this September. To launch their visit in D.C., their hosts were the amazing international journalists and broadcasters from Voices of America, and National Flight Leg partner, Paramount Business Jets.

Thank you Lyndse and Veronica for constantly advocating for and developing the Dreams Soar program!

Hard Problem Consulting Making Our Life Easy
It is important to constantly plan for the unexpected, especially while performing a solo global flight. Our partners have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety and comfort of our founder and pilot. Thanks to Hard Problem Consulting, LLC, Dreams Soar pilot Shaesta Waiz has proper food and lodging accommodations at stops along the route. Hard Problem Consulting is a long-term strategic planning company that has helped many other companies and organizations worldwide. Their hard work is appreciated and will never go overlooked!

“As Shaesta spreads her worldwide vision that all things are possible irrespective of one’s past or current situation, a simple line from my favorite poet, the Sufi mystic Jalaluddin Rumi, comes to mind: ‘Whoever travels without a guide, needs two hundred years for a two-day journey. I trust that Shaesta, with two hundred guides diligently working to help fulfill her vision, travels swiftly.'”

Thank you Hard Problem Consulting for making dreams soar!

A Quick Look at IATA Montreal Connect
During Shaesta’s stop in Montreal, she had the wonderful opportunity to visit the IATA Montreal Connect event. The Wildlife Strike Hazard Reduction Symposium, sponsored by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) was held on May 17. Shaesta was able to represent Dreams Soar at the event, highlighting our mission to inspire the next generation of STEM and aviation professionals and the importance of STEM innovation to propel a safer and more advanced industry.

Daily Dose of STEM
This just in! A new plant near Zurich, Switzerland is now fully functioning and sucking the CO2 out of the air around it! This facility is the first of its kind and was opened on May 31. In an effort to reduce and prevent climate change, there will need to be hundreds of thousands more around the world according to itClimeworks. The Paris agreement has come to the conclusion that CO2 emission limits are not enough to reverse climate change damage, and facilities such as these are a necessary force to fix what is broken. Read more about this amazing facility here!
