Capt. Enrique (Henry) Horta was born the third child of the Horta Family in Ventura California. He grew up in other cities such as, Los Angeles, Watsonville, Cucamonga and San Diego. While spending some of his teen years in Mexico he learned about survival and the importance of appreciating and doing the best of what resources he had. When he returned to California he was a skinny kid with dreams and plans to be a Pilot, traveler and adventurer. His wild dreams of becoming an Astronaut and going to the moon where replaced by more realistic dreams such as wanting to become an Airline Pilot. When he turned 18 years old, he parted from his parents and had to join the working rat race starting out as a bag-boy at a local Safeway store. His plans to finish College were halted by his travelling bug so he took a break from school, sold his motorcycle, and went back-packing to Europe with only $1,000.00 Dollars in his pocket, a Euro-Pass train Ticket for a month, and a return airplane ticket home. Fatherhood in Germany at a young age made him become more responsible and serious about his dreams. He didn't return alone to California and was now a young family man while working as a carpenter in construction and attending evening University and Flight School on weekends. His hard work, scholarships, grants, and student loans paid off and he graduated with an Airway Science Degree in addition to all his Pilot ratings and Certificates. Thereafter, his life became more of an adventure and he travelled around the world working for various Airlines as a Contract Pilot.
