【Let’s listen to what he has to say】

I am very grateful to be selected as one of the rescue workers of good performance this year. This honor belongs to everyone on my team. I could have not done all the jobs without their help and supports. I am always thinking what would happen and what I should do when it does happen when I am out there flying a mission. After all, it is saving life we are talking about. It is not just those waiting to be rescued, but also the crew on board the helicopter with me. The flight training and exercises with crews are in fact performed to improve the safety when we are executing a rescue mission. I want to thank my crew for the directions they gave me during the trainings. It is them who help me through this meaningful job.
