A couple of months ago, I came across a video of a young boy solving the most difficult maths questions without breaking a sweat on Facebook. Honestly, I couldn’t believe it until I heard him on 702. This young genius’s name is Sibahle Zwane, a 9 year old aspiring pilot from Lehae neighbourhood near Lenasia, Johannesburg.
Being a smart boy with a bright future, Mango Airlines brought Sibahle one step closer to his dreams.
“When we heard this on the radio, we wanted to commend this young gentleman for his leadership, it was a natural fit and part of our DNA to surprise and delight young aspiring pilots,” said Benediction Zubane, HOD Marketing and Communications at Mango Airline.
Mango created a two-day travel experience for Sibahle, his mother Mbali Zwane, and Aunt Nonhlanhla Mabambi. The three guest-boarded a plane for the first time, where Sibahle received a special welcome from the pilot and a seat in the cockpit to further inspire his ambitions.
“We knew the family had not experienced air travel before and we were fortunate to provide them with this experience, but our greatest surprise was sharing Sibahle’s joy when he saw the beach for the first time,” concludes Zubane.
