About Me

Hi wonderful people! Welcome to my website.

My name is Rui Delgado Lopes also known as Pilot Rui Lopes. I’m a Swedish airline pilot living in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Working as a commercial pilot is a dream come true and it all started at the age of 6.

As a young boy I dreamt about flying objects. This dream grew into a strong passion and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else other than piloting an aircraft.

At the age of 23 I started my pilot training at Svensk pilotutbildning (SPU) and graduated 2005.

I got my first job as a part time pilot/first officer flying the PA (Piper Aircraft) 31 2 weeks after graduation. 6 months later I joined a larger company as a first officer and started my type rating on the Boeing 737.

Today I’m an experienced captain/commercial pilot with over 16 years experience within the aviation industry.

I strongly believe that everything is possible in life.
You are the limitation and you are the biggest obstacle you will ever face.
I believe that with 100% dedication, motivation and the right mindset you will be victorious in your different goals in life.

Social media is a great tool to motivate, inspire and to give you insights in my daily job as a commercial pilot. Fun fact is that it was my younger siblings that "forced" me to social media so that I could motivate others:) I have today a growing Instagram, TikTok account and other social media platforms where my mission is to inspire, motivate and to share positive energy.

Feel free to contact me for business inquires via my contact form. If you have other general comments/questions you are most welcome to comment my Instagram/TikTok posts.

I wish you a wonderful day.
