She has been traveling the globe for many years. She began her career as a ᴄᴏᴘilot on short-haul flights after being chosen as a pilot and completing the necessary training courses. She flew a variety of aircraft, including the Fokker 70, Boeing 737, and Airbus 320. After that, she operated our long-distance Boeing 767s for three years. Today, she pilots our Embraer 195 as the captain.
My parents’ buddy used to frequently fly with me along. I was just six years old the first time I took a flight with him. I went to the US for a student exchange ten years later. My host father had his own aircraft and was a former Air Force pilot. But it goes without saying that my parents contributed to my fascination with flying as well. I was allowed to look inside the cockpit, which was still permitted at that time, on endless holiday flights.
Every flight is different and presents a new challenge. I can work with the best people and enjoy the most Sᴛᴜɴning landscape from the cockpit windows. My ability to control an airplane with two hands that weigh several tons still fascinates me today.
There are plenty! Take our Boeing 737 into Dubai as an all-female crew and take a night journey from Toronto to Vienna while admiring the northern lights dance. or to travel from Mauritius to Vienna and take in the grandeur of the African continent. or to get a ᴄʟᴏsᴇ-up look of Mount Blanc. There will be a ton more instances like these, I’m sure!
