I think that the culture of TP Aerospace reflects the personalities of our founders. The organization is just so relaxed and horizontal; you have easy access to management, which is a lot different from what I was used to in the Spanish aviation industry. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that we’re rooted in Denmark, but I still believe this characterizes TP overall and sets us apart.
Ever since I was little, when I played with toy airplanes, I’ve been fascinated with the aviation industry. At one point, I even took flying lessons and obtained my private pilot license. However, I quickly found out that I didn’t really see myself making a career of flying, and since then I have been in different positions in the industry, mainly in management and sales.
There’s a lot of traveling involved in my job, and I just love it! Traveling as much as I do is both challenging and hectic, and when I get home from a long business trip, I am often physically exhausted. But at the same time, it gives me so much more energy; it’s kind of hard to explain. When I’ve been in the office for a while, I just have an urge to jump on a plane again. So, I am really happy that TP allows me to combine my job and passion for airplanes with my love for traveling.
What I think is unique about TP is the long learning curve. I’ve been here for five years – and I’m still learning. And sometimes you are faced with a challenge and you might not have someone near to guide you. But you just have to find a way to navigate in the unknown, which is exactly what you are encouraged to do here. And over time, you learn that it’s OK to fail and that it actually makes you grow both personally and professionally.
