Airline pilot an Instagram darling: ‘My childhood dream’

An attractive airline pilot is taking the Internet by storm after posting a series of Instagram photos documenting her globetrotting ways.

Eser Aksan Erdogan, 31, has amassed nearly 30,000 followers for her pics globetrotting across the world.

From exotic beaches in Mexico to the deserts of Jordan – she has visited 50 different countries so far.

In other Instagram accounts, a bikini model leapt to fame for her snaps with guns.

While a beach babe went viral for her bikini photos with exotic creatures.

She shares selfies in the cockpit of her Turkish Pegasus Airlines passenger jet before posting snaps of the exotic destinations she visits.

Eser, who has Turkish parents but was born and raised in the Netherlands, has seen the Northern Lights and been on safari in Tanzania.

She began posting photos when she started flying three years ago and flies the Boeing 737 aircraft to destinations in Europe and the Middle East.

Eser told the Mirror: “Being a pilot was my childhood dream. I was kind of a tomboy so I always wanted to fly an F16, but since I’m against war, violence and armies, flying big jets is so much better.

“The eternal blue of the sky, fluffy clouds and the ability to visit countries far, far away have always had a big attraction on me.

“My parents were afraid of flying so I was the only one in the family who had a crush on the sky.”

Eser is married to 33-year-old Volkan, who is a pilot with a different airline.

The couple have set up their schedules so their days off coincide.

She adds she has witnessed some incredible things in the sky.

Eser said: “The best part of the job is that is never gets boring and we always get to see the sun when you climb over the clouds on rainy days.

“You can see all kinds of beautiful things up there, like at night at 41,000ft when there is no moon you can see the Milky Way sometimes.

“In Scandinavia you can see the Aurora Borealis in winter time and when passing near clouds with static energy there is a phenomenon called St. Elmo’s fire on your windscreen which is almost hypnotising.”
