Nung Reporter si Steve Dailisan sa GMA News, meron syang trademark sa kanyang bawat voiceover report. Kapag extro na at babanggitin na nya ang kanyang pangalan, parang may sampung letter e ang kanyang first name. (as in Steeeeeeeeeeeeve Dailisan!) Ginawa ko pa yang joke sa ilang episodes ng radio show ko. Ang nakakaloka lang ay nakarating sa kanya dahil nagtweet sa kanya ang mga listeners. (game naman sya sa biro ko. akala ko nga magiging kami pa. Chos!)

“What I learned from being in the field for more than a decade is to always maximize your senses and listen to your core when you are confronted with noises. This will enable you to focus on what’s important and not be distracted by other factors that could impair your judgment. When you are in the industry you also get to build contacts. Beyond the network, you should be able to establish strong relationships. This will come very handy in your future endeavors, ” sabi ni Steeve.  (ako ata ibang relationships ang naachieve ko nung reporter ako!)

Aminado ang Journalism Graduate ng Polytechnic University of the Philippines na  nami-miss nya ang news industry. :

“More than the adrenaline rush that you get each time you cover stories that shape history, what I miss most about news reporting is the opportunity to deliver public service. I also miss my colleagues and everyone in the industry. I miss listening to people and telling their stories. They say being a journalist is a thankless job. However, a tiring day in the field is always compensated with fulfillment when you are presented with a chance to provide relevant, timely and accurate information in times of calamities, conflict and uncertainties.” (ako ba bro, di mo nami-miss?!)

Pero enjoy naman daw sya sa kanyang bagong career sa airline industry na nagsimula three years ago nung magdesisyon syang maging piloto. (iba rin ha! piloto lang naman!)

“Ever since I was a kid, I get “kilig” when we travel by plane. It did not fade even when I was a reporter. In fact, I would often collect diecast planes and watch air crash investigation documentaries. In 2018, I took the leap of faith. I filed an early retirement and used my savings to enroll in a flight training school. It took me 17 months to complete the necessary requirements and acquire my Private Pilot License (PPL), Commercial Pilot License (CPL) with Instrument Rating and Airbus A320 rating. Immediately after, I applied and was hired as First Officer for Cebu Pacific,” kwento ni Steeve. (parang sayo ako kinikilig bro!)

Hindi lang nagtuloy tuloy ang career nyang ito dahil sa pandemya. Napasama sya sa mga na-retrench bilang isa sya mga pinakabagong piloto.

“At present, I am still maintaining my licenses as an Airbus 320 Pilot. Hopefully, when things get better in the travel and tourism industry, me and my colleagues will be able to return to the cockpit and fly you safely to your intended destination,” Hangad ni Steeve. (dahil dyan sakay mo ko bro! at parang gusto ko rin sa cockpit ha!)

Natutuwa lang si Steeve dahil may nagbukas na ibang pinto para sa kanya. (ay ako pati bintana ko bukas for you bro!) Nabigyan sya ng pagkakataon ngayon na maging Spokesperson and Head of Communications and Public Affairs ng Air Asia Philippines.  (bigatin talaga itong si steeeeeeeeve!)

“In my present job, I was able to marry my love for aviation and my passion to deliver public service by way of providing our guests with adequate and simplified technical information that will prepare them for a safe journey,” sambit ni Steeve. (I feel safe with you bro!)

Umaasa sya na malalagpasan din natin ang lahat ng ating pinagdadaanan  ngayon :

“We see Covid as a temporary delay on our future plans for growth and a sustainable and viable future. We remain confident that tourism and travel will bounce back and that we can reap the benefits to grow again in the years to come. We can’t wait to paint the skies red again soon, both domestically and internationally as soon as travel restrictions allow and international borders reopen.” (basta gusto kong lumipad nang kasama ka bro!)
