Captain of the Boeing 737 and Boeing 777, and Base Manager for Brisbane at Virgin Australia, Andrew Bauer is one of the best mentor figures I have had so far. He's a people person through and through and leads with compassion and empathy. Everyone knows him and everyone respects him because he is good at what he does and he is genuine about it. I can only hope that I will, one day, become half the pilot he is today. He is the best introduction to this new segment of my blog: Awesome Humans.
