FlyMS pilots Tomas and Vykruta met Santiago during the 2015-2016 mission while flying patients in Uruguay. One of the patients was Santiago's mom. The 3 pilots quickly became friends and visited the home of Roberto Canessa, the survivor of Uruguayn 571 crash. It was Roberto who suggested Santiago should join the FlyMS team and fly to Argentina with them for the next event.

Tomas and Fouad agreed. Santiago packed his bag and the 3 pilots flew off the Argentina. After Argentina the 3 did not separate, instead, they continued to fly together through many more countries all the way to New York. Santiago was not a part of the original team but proved to be an incredibly valuable member.
