Joakim Strøm

CEO & Founder

Two and a half years in the USA, learning the basics of flying one and two propeller airplanes, came to an end with an offer to join SAS in 1988. Since then his life has been on the airline highway flying various jets. MD80, B767, B737, A330, A340, A350 and A320 in that order. For the better part of his career a constant battle for keeping knowledge and skills up to par, led to a desire for and work with a handy pilot emergency training tool. Pocketzim is his baby but he knows it takes a family to raise a child.
