Ten Young Bulgarians Who Make Things Happen

Mario Bakalov (38): This gentleman has traveled to the moon eight times. At least that is the distance he has covered as a Lufthansa pilot. He is the only Bulgarian who flies the German airline’s big steel bird, the largest passenger plane on Earth, the Airbus A380. Once he even took it for a spin to Sofia, some two years ago. On top of the flying, Mario Bakalov is a freelance motivational speaker. He tells people how to achieve dreams, which is exactly what he did. At age 5 he decided to become a pilot. Guess what he became.
