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 5/6.

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/Instructor/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.
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 a 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.
