When I was hired by SkyWest, I decided to make this Instagram account with the goal to encourage and inspire other pilots. In particular, I wanted other females to know how amazing this career path is and that women can make it in a male dominated field! I have been so blessed to live in a country that allows me to pursue what I love and many amazing women to look up to as I follow my dreams in aviation. For all the ladies out there—the sky is not the limit... it’s the beginning! ✈️❤️ — @tristanthepilot #photorepost .

“H A P P Y I N T E R N A T I O N A L
W O M E N S D A Y💫
.
Today is a day to celebrate the achievements of women all around the world, breaking barriers in all walks of life.
.
International Women’s Day now provides a year-long point of reference and direction for women and groups, offering a framework for galvanising and uniting global activity aimed at accelerating gender parity
.
This week I was lucky enough to operate the #Boeing777 with Captain Martha.
@emirates employs women on an equal opportunity basis. Overall, female employees constitute over 40% of the workforce at Emirates with the majority of women working as cabin crew.
.
I have to say that with these increasing numbers, it makes me proud to work for a company with such vision. This is not only because of the impact they have worldwide but because of the women they themselves employ from over 150 nationalities
.

Which women inspire you daily? Little @jacquifish @_drinktapwater @leah0027 @jodie.cotte @kkatt_l @demonaco75 @annacjesse @erinjess86 and @mchugh4122 are just a couple of inspiring women who encourage me and support me no matter what I do.
.
Swipe to check out a quick flash back of my career. No matter what gender you are, hard work and dedication will always pay off. Thank you to the men that employed me as the first woman in their companies during my early career.” — @domcotdotcom

Expansion of Filipino Airlines - A Reason to Start Your Aviation Career in the Philippines

As of today, there is a total of 7 Filipino airlines including Philippine Airlinese, AirAsia Philippines, Cebu Pacific Air, PAL Express, SkyJet, CebGo and AirSWIFT (formerly ITI), 14 Charter Airlines, and 2 Cargo Airlines in the Philippines. All of these airlines are currently on the quest for expansion.
This expansion is prevalent as you can see these airlines ceaselessly acquiring more aircraft, as well as looking for more pilots, flight attendants and aircraft engineers to fill in their teams.

PHILIPPINE AIRLINES

One of the Filipino airlines that never stops growing and expanding is the country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines. Just recently, this airline was certified by SkyTrax, a London-based international air transport rating organization, with the 4-Star Airline Rating for the quality of its onboard product and staff service, as well as the Philippine Airlines home base Airport service. This has been one of the airline’s greatest achievements after many years of operation.

Acquiring New Aircraft

PAL’s achievement isn’t surprising as they never stop aiming for growth. Hence, it is also not shocking to hear them want to push their 4-star rating to a 5-star airline status. This year, they plan to spend around $2 Billion to acquire 15 new planes which includes 4 Airbus A350s, 6 Airbus A321 neo (new engine option), and 5 Bombardier Q400 next generation planes. As of the today, PAL has a total of 88 aircraft, and acquiring the 15 new planes will bring their fleet to a total of 103 aircraft.

🔲 Single
🔲 Married
🔲 In a Relationship
🔲 It’s Complicated
☑️ In a committed love affair with anything that flies (although I’m still a little wary of hot air balloons cuz those things can just float away to the ocean if you’re not careful) but mainly airplanes—and it still gives me butterflies after all these years, but I have no time for anything but traveling, flying, friends and family, which is super great... You should try it ❤️✈️👩🏻‍✈️— @tristanthepilot #photorepost .

Have you seen our Facebook post about encouraging more women to become pilots (if not follow the link in our bio)! Only approx 4% of pilots worldwide is a woman! We are actively encouraging more to consider it as a career! 🛫

Just like Myriam - an Airbus A320 Second Officer in Tunesia @myriam_mezni follow her on Instagram to see her journey above the skies! .

GLOBALLY THERE IS A PILOT SHORTAGE AND ONE OF THE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS IS THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF MORE FEMALES TO CONSIDER BECOMING PILOTS!
As of today, there are more than 650,000 pilots worldwide and in recent studies done by both Airbus and Boeing, the world needs 640,000 new pilots in the next 20 years. But among the thousands of pilots we currently have, there is still a relatively low number of female pilots compared to male pilots.
According to the Airman Database, an open database maintained by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that gathers information about airline pilots all over the world, only 5.44 % of the world’s pilots are female. Here are some information of female pilots by select countries:
Philippines: 2%
Singapore: 1%
Brazil: 2.2%
Australia: 4.1%
USA: 5.1%
Japan: 5.6%
France: 7.6%
India: 12.5%
AviationFly.com has scoured the Internet and wrote another useful article to let you know why the female pilot population is low and that WE NEED MORE FEMALE PILOTS in the Aviation Industry:
1. Perception of Pilot Training Schools - Although the number of female students are increasing compared to the previous years, there is still a low number of female pilot students worldwide. One of the reason for low female pilot training student enrolment is that when they visit the school they do not see a lot of other female students.
2. Old stereotypes affect aspiring female pilots.
Patricia Haffner, the first woman to be trained as the prestigious French University for pilots Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) and is also the first woman captain on Airbus A380, recalls the stereotypes in her early days in the industry.

“During the A350-1000 delivery flight I had a chance to visit the cockpit and have a talk with Captain Konstantinos Iliakis at 41.000 feet(12,5km)! This Captain is a very wise and inspirational person, was great to have a talk with him. He has flown the first Qatar Airways A350-900 commercial flight and now also the first A350-1000 on its delivery flight to Doha. For me this was my first time on the flightdeck during flight and I cannot describe my feelings. Childhood dreams came true!! Many thanks to my friends at @qatarairways for making this special moment happen, I will never forget my first visit in the cockpit during flight anymore #goingplacestogether”@vladiflyer #photorepost .

When deboarding is completed and preliminary items are done , if refueling is not required , we turn the FastenBelts sign switch ‘ON’ to let cabin crew realize that we are ready for next boarding. If fueling is required , we need to wait until it is finished. — @merts3ngun

“...People usually see my job as being “badass”...but they don’t realize what goes in to an average day at work. Imagine driving from another state to get to work. YES, people do this. Imagine getting to work, only to realize it’s going to be IFR all day so you’ve got to cancel all of your flights and hope people reschedule. Imagine sitting at an airport for 8 hours, only to log and get paid for 1 hour. .
It’s honestly crazy the sacrifices we make, just to have the opportunity to fly and build hours. But just like any other great career, you’ve got to start at the bottom and work your way up. It’s definitely a grind.. but to the people that write these reviews, y’all are the real MVPs!! It feels amazing getting feedback like this 😘🚁” — @rachelicopter #photorepost .
