ICARO's values

Passion for what we do is our motivation: We believe that we must love what we do to succeed, to reach our goals and turn our dreams into reality. From our team members to our students, we all find this to be our principal value.

Communicate with respect, always being honest and humble before all: We respect individuals and we treat people like we would like to be treated. Respect is an important attribute that we give and we expect to receive. Honesty is part of the respect we give. Humbleness is how we show respect for others and our triumphs are not ours, they are a team effort.

Leave positive traces in the people with whom we work. (Students, co-workers, suppliers, customers): We believe in leaving a positive trace with every individual that comes through our journey  and we cherish every experience we share. 

We materialize dreams. Flying is a long dream of human beings, which is why what we do is so important. Humans are capable of achieving anything they set themselves to accomplish, our goal is to be a tool to achieve dreams. 

We grow and learn every day: Growth is part of life, the more we grow, the more we can impart our knowledge to others. We long to be an example for our students.
