Yung history ng Pilipinas, history ni Newton [Isaac Newton, English mathematician, physicist and astronomer], kung saan galing yung hangin, kung saan nanggagaling yung init. Yun palang hangin, nanggagaling sa mga puno. Yung mga ganoon. Bakit lumilipad ang helicopter, yung mga ganoon, kailangang malaman mo, so lahat nang ito, may learnings ka,” the host shared.
He also said that he can now operate the helicopter for take off and landing but with the aid of a licensed pilot. “Ichi-check right ka ng CAAP [Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines]. Kapag puwede ka na, saka mo pa lang makukuha yung personal license mo para sa pilot,” Willie Revillame added.
He is eager to reach this stage after his exam for flying. Above all this, the TV host also shared another purpose why he wanted to be a licensed pilot. “Who knows, in the future, huwag naman sana, kulang ng piloto, makatulong ako sa emergency. Kung may mga disaster, I can help,” he said.
