As a youngster Arttu had two objects of interests, an aviation and motorsports. At 15 Arttu was really into glider planes and that passion for hobby later turned into a career in the cockpit of an jet airliner.

After several years he spent all over the world as a flight instructor and a pilot time was finally right for motorsports.
