We recently caught up with private pilot, Kevin Vandenboss, to discover the 5 pilots you must follow on Instagram in 2020. This is what he said:
“Pilots are becoming the new stars of Instagram, and it’s no wonder with the incredible views that can only be seen from the cockpit at 36,000 feet, and the new places they find themselves every day. Not to mention, it’s one of the most fascinating jobs, which almost every kid wanted at some point.
Many aspiring pilots also find these social media influencers as an excellent resource with regular training and career tips, and a real look at the daily life of a pilot.
