On 15th October 2019, a local boy, Victor Pul will have the honour of being a pilot on the first ever commercial flight into the new airport in Wa.

Victor hails from Nandom in the Upper West Region, and grew up in Wa attending Saint Francis Xavier Minor Seminary Secondary School. His interest in flying began when he was 10 years old and a cousin introduced him to flight simulator video games. His parents were very supportive of his ambitions, and made many sacrifices to ensure he pursued his dreams of becoming an airline pilot.

Today, Victor is an Embraer 145 First Officer for Africa World Airlines. He also has been instrumental in setting up Pegasus Aviation Academy in the Northern Region, to help encourage youth pursuing aviation careers.

Africa World Airlines will fly 3 weekly flights to Wa from Accra via Tamale, providing the first ever scheduled flights to the Upper West Region. Fares begin as low as 99 cedis each way between Tamale and Wa, and 299 cedis each way between Accra and Wa.
