Speaking in an interview with Frankie 5 on This Is Gospel, Audrey recounted her joyful moment at the thought of moving an aircraft but that joy quickly shifted into discomfort on her first flight.

“I was really scared and I couldn’t imagine myself adding force to it for the aircraft to be off the ground. It was nice in the beginning but later in the flight for my first day, I was feeling airsick. I was sweating. I wanted to really throw up,” she said.

Audrey, however, revealed that she managed to succeed the discomfort to happily complete her maiden flight with a lot of motivation from her mum who was also on board.
