Speaking on their conversation with ex-president Obama, Gaurav said, “Meeting former president Barack Obama was a complete and utmost honor for Ritu and me. As most of us know, Mr. Obama is a true world leader and the greatest orator. When we told him that both Ritu and I are pilots, he said I now feel safe with you guys around me and if I’m delayed, you guys can fly me back home. We discussed our thoughts on how we can protect or at least conserve the environment. Mr. Obama also asked us if we can fly an aircraft together to which we told him that in India, spouses (pilots) can’t fly an aircraft together.”
