“As cheesy as it may seem coming from a student pilot, we really learned at the university of Debrecen and Pharmaflight, that the sky is NOT the limit. With the experiences offered by the education and the various activities we have access to thorough our college years here in Debrecen, we learned to grow.” (Nadeen, Professional Pilot student from Jordan)
