We would like to gather in images and stories the history of education of our student pilots.

Each student of the ATO Ratan, who wants to become part of this page, can send us a photo and information about himself, which we will post here.

We wish you gut luck!

I was born Sofia and my love for Aviation started in early childhood. I can hardly think of anything else that determined my life as much as the flight profession. I come from a family directly related to the Air Force and Bulgarian Civil Aviation. I am the grandson aviator colonel Dimitar Bachvarov - hero of World War II. Many of my relatives are committed to the cause of aviation to the present day.

Since I graduated from Highschool I had the goal of becoming an aviator. Back then I had three options, regarding my professional and educational future - to join the Bulgarian Air Force Academy in Dolna Mitropoliya, the Technical University of Sofia or to delay my dreams by a few years.
