According to the BBC, globally only about 3% of pilots are women. We are definitely in favor of more women on the flight deck, and we are sure that you’ll be too when you follow these 7 rockstar female pilots on Instagram.

Maria Pettersson

@pilotmaria

Without any doubt, ever smiling Maria Petterson is the most joyful, positive and popular Instagram pilot out there. She’s definitely our reason to smile every time we open Instagram and are treated with a fresh photo from this travel-loving colleague!

Maria Fagerström

@mariathepilot

Two Maria’s, flying for the same airline, equally pretty, joyful and adventurous… What are the odds? This Maria, who joined the company recently, not only shares here beautiful pictures with us on Instagram, but also takes us with her on her (sometimes breathtaking) surf trips on YouTube.

Christa

@christavliegt

Dutch jet jockey, photographer, fitgirl and traveler Christa knows how to capture a great shot. And we are privileged to enjoy her best shots!

Kimberly

@737pilotgirl

The Belgian 737 pilot Kimberly is a rising star. She takes us with her en-route and we love it!

Eva Clair

@flywitheva

Barcelona-based Dutchie Eva Claire has been posting pictures about her life en-route but also on her own journeys since 2014. In November 2016, she decided to go on a 30-day, 800 km journey to Santiago. By foot. Solo.

Now that’s what we call spirit!

Not a single square cm (or inch, if that’s your thing) is unknown to this mysterious Boeing 737 pilot. If you love this plane as much as we do, follow Olivia!
