My Story

The COVID-19 wreaked havoc on aviation, changing the lives of hundreds of thousands people in the industry. As the vaccine rollout begins and we can start to see the end of the tunnel in sight, it is important to document the memories of recent months.

The challenges, the heartache, the life changing experiences, the good, the bad and everything in between. There is a real need for people to document these times now and to enable everyone to move on to a brighter future in 2021.

My COVID Story will share memories and experiences from the time of the pandemic and will highlight some of the most inspiring stories from across the aviation industry.
