A pilot instructor has received a “big surprise” from his previous students in the flight school.
KAMI learned that Selahattin Onan treated his former students as his own children.
In a video posted by Facebook page Into The Now, Onan was boarded in a flight of Turkish Airlines for a personal trip.
While enjoying his seat, the pilot announced through the PA system that the flight was extra special because of the presence of their teacher.
“For 6 years I’ve been a pilot as part of the Turkish Airlines family and much of that is due to the efforts of my teacher Selahattin Onan, a long-serving teacher who is with us on this plane today,” the pilot said.
“It’s a beautiful thing to be able to call your teacher someone who is like a father to you,” he added.
Meanwhile, a clip of students giving a message for their teacher was played on the screen. A few moments later, the students approached him with a bouquet of flowers.
The teacher could no longer hide his tears and got really emotional. He said that it was such a “big surprise” for him.
“Thank you so much. You’ve made me so happy,” Onan said.
“It was such a big surprise. One of the biggest surprises I’ve experienced in 70 years,” he added.
The netizens were touched by the heartwarming video. Here are some of the comments on the Facebook page:
