Next up on #aastewspotlight is flight attendant and pilot, @mia_evette ! She’ll be exchanging her flight attendant wings for pilot wings! Congratulations!!!! ️
“Ever since I was two, I knew I belonged in the sky. I would tell my mom that I wanted to be a stewardess (I’m aging myself) who also flew the plane!
It wasn’t until I became a flight attendant for American, that I realized that my dream of becoming a pilot would be a reality! I knew it would be a difficult road but I was determined to not give up.
My journey was not easy: it was year and a half of picking up extra trips to afford lessons, forcing my self to fly even when I was tired from work, countless tears, and tons of written tests and checkrides with FAA examiners. But thanks to the amazing support system at American Airlines, I am proud to say that I am officially a single and multi engine rated commercial pilot with both and will be building hours at a commuter airline.
I am beyond sad to hang up my Flight Attendant uniform, but am even more excited for when the time comes for me to return home as an American Airlines pilot.” - 2 minutes ago
