Pilot and flight assistant are still among the dream jobs, even if these professions have not been associated anymore with the great appeal of former times for quite a while by now. It is curious that, at least when you ask boys and girls, nearly all dream jobs require wearing uniforms: firefighter, police officer, captain, pilot, flight assistant, doctors as gods in white. The fascination of the uniform works; it suggests competence if not to mention power, organisation and attractiveness. But getting back to pilots and flight assistants: of course, these are not dream jobs anymore and issues of gruelling work hours or an uncertain future have hit home in these professions as well. We have taken a look around above the clouds to find cool globetrotters of the air who are prominent in the new media, exercise their jobs with passion and grant sneak peeks as bloggers or Instagram stars.
1. #HappyLandings – @PilotMaria
When S*@# hits the fan and the auto pilots no longer wants to play, when visibility drops to 3000 meters in heavy rain and gusty cross winds, that's when we pilots get to do what we are trained to do. Saying thank you to a great week flying out of Milano and hello to 14 days off and new adventures ahead, flying the L39, Albatros in Riga next week! I can't wait!! See you soon @migflug ?✈️(take the first part here with a pinch of salt, I like to make my job sound a lot cooler than it sometimes is ?)
At #happylandings on Instagram, you can find the Swedish woman Maria Pettersson, who travels to the most pristine destinations of this world as a professional pilot. With countless selfie and photo motifs, she has certainly advanced to being an influencer pilot at this time already.

The talent of flying has apparently been put into Captain Anis Amireh’s cradle, because he stepped into his father’s shoes and likewise became a professional pilot. He writes in his vita that as a child he was already fascinated with the glamorous pilot’s uniform so much that he never wanted to become anything else. On his blog, he writes regularly about the adventure of flying.
