Last week I had the pleasure to fly 400 passengers around Europe with a female First Officer. It was a challenging day - our first flight was an automatic landing with a visibility of 200 metres (which is at the legal minimum at the aircraft can land), followed by a flight to Poland later with 35mph crosswinds which is also almost at the limit of the aircraft. As the passengers were disembarking after the last flight (where we arrived 10 minutes early!) a passenger couldn't resist popping his head around the flight deck door and congratulating on my efforts, that we are almost as good as the men and to keep trying. I wrote a blog post after a similar experience a couple of years ago, and unfortunately it's still relevant today. I could be a millionare if I had an euro for every time someone made a joke about parking the aircraft. I've spoken to parents who encourage their sons to have an interest in flying and ignored the fact that their daughter is beaming with excitement at the idea. Encourage the women and little girls around you to pursue their dreams, even if they seem impossible, because your gender doesn't define how well you fly an aeroplane! bit.ly/womeninaviation #internationalwomensday
Some Jaaaaags in Berlin
My feed is basically becoming photos out of plane windows, but Dublin in the sunshine is just too good not to share 💚
Nobody puts Baby in a corner 🍉
Spent today making the most of the time we have left in Ireland's beautiful countryside. Here's to 2019's new adventures; exploring more hills, summiting more peaks and getting out there even (especially!) if it's really bloody cold ☃️
Good morning, NCL!
