About Ari Hovnanyan. Ari shares his love of aviation by recalling his first flying experience on how it felt to be in an airplane flying through the blue sky, watching the world beneath him. He, more specifically, remembers the sense of accomplishment he felt when the time came for his first solo flight.
Seating in an airplane all by himself, as the pilot in command, piloting an airplane without an instructor on board. Ari claims these events are what inspire him in sharing his skills with others to help them achieve the same joys and sense of achievement in aviation.
Today, Ari flies for a major airline, however, his passion lies in general aviation. He enjoys flying with prospective students for the first time. There is a certain excitement in the eyes of new pilots when they see the beauty and feel the freedom of flight for the first time. Ari feels the highest level of accomplishment as an aviator rest on mentoring others to achieve their dreams of becoming pilots.

About Leo Aristizabal. Leo’s story starts in Cali, Colombia where, as a middle-class kid becoming a pilot was always his childhood dream; even though circumstances made it an unimaginable one. “I dreamt of flying as it would give me the freedom to explore the world!” Leo claims.
He habitually shares his love of flying, his stories of how he overcame rigorous obstacles in his life to become a captain for a major commercial airline today, and his joy of hearing all diverse kinds of pilots’ accents and languages over the tower radios.
Today, aside from living the dream of working for major commercial airliners, Leo is also serving as a flight instructor and mentor to the future generation of pilots and aviation enthusiasts. He wishes to implement what he had learned through his own experiences to help student pilots reach their dreams easier than he had.
Leo, as the visionary partner of the organization, always seeks new tools and technology to improve ActivePILOT. He is currently in charge of building ActivePILOT’s mobile App which, once released, will offer an impressive range of new services to general aviation.
Leo believes that we, as a community of pilots, aircraft owners, and aviation enthusiasts must build a stronger aviation community by facilitating access to aircraft and quality instructors (through technology) to all aviation lovers and future pilots.
