Chief Executive of ‘Accra By Air’, Adubea Ofosu has unveiled a private domestic airline service.
This is a service where people get the opportunity to fly and take a trip to view the picturesque communities tucked away in Accra from above.
According to Adubea, her passion for traveling to foreign countries, including Dubai where this venture was rife, inspired her to launch this new business.
Speaking on Joy Learning TV’s career and entrepreneurship development program dubbed ‘The Career Trail’, the young entrepreneur disclosed that after this intriguing discovery, she decided to replicate the same concept in Ghana.
“For the aircrafts, I travelled and I realized that there is actually something called Adventure Tours or City Tours, where you can hire an aircraft or helicopters and then you tour around the city. For instance, in Dubai, they do that. So when I noticed this, I thought to myself; we could actually do this in Ghana, because there is nothing like that here”. So the name is ‘Accra by Air’, and then that’s the whole concept”, she explained.
Adubea further indicated that the introduction of this novel concept was met with massive support from Ghanaians.
“We had huge support and it was amazing. When we first announced it, we were even trending on Twitter”, she expounded.
She explicated that she obtained the technical know-how and the insight to start an aviation business from a relative who was a pilot.
With regards to funding the aircrafts, she admitted that it did require a lot of money. For that matter, she had to collaborate with other partners in order to raise the necessary resources.
The company has acquired four aircraft so far. She aspires to buy at least 20 aircraft by the end of the year.
It is worth noting that the young entrepreneur, Adubea Ofosu, on top of her aviation business, also has a degree in Nursing from the University of Ghana, Legon.
“I finished Legon in 2020. After school, I wrote [exams for] my license, because before you can practice professionally, you have to get your license. So I practiced a little bit, got my license, and also applied for another international license, which was in Texas. I did the exams, and so I have two licenses; Texas and Ghana. I was still improving my nursing journey too”, she disclosed.
Although presently, she does not practice nursing professionally, she divulged that she rather uses her background in health for the wellness of women and children in an international organization.
“What I use my health background or health education for, is for the wellness of women and children for an international organization, and that’s something that I do on the side. We work on projects that are geared towards the well-being of women and children. So I’m doing that on the side, remotely”, she expounded.
She urges all young people who aspire to become entrepreneurs to not limit themselves by thinking they need to pursue only business-related courses in school, but rather to pursue any course of their choice, as they can still be able to branch into entrepreneurship at any point.
Entrepreneurship does not necessarily demand a formal background in business, as one can still take up short courses in business along the line, she concluded.
