Why Women Love Pilots

Why Women Love Pilots

"Sometimes we like watching our man take control."

I read recently that being a pilot is one of the hottest jobs a man could have...and I couldn’t deny or disagree with that statement. I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by the aviation community working at a flight school and almost every man in my life, including my boyfriend, are pilots. They are the type of guys you won’t forget and will never want to forget. After hearing that the most swiped right job on tinder was a pilot, I couldn’t help myself to not explain why girls love pilots.

They taking date nights to a new level.


When you date a pilot you no longer have to go to the same places for date nights in the town you live in. Whether they own their own plane, or they rent it for the night you guys could fly to almost anywhere you could imagine. Making that date even more intimate and sexy!

They are the three most important S’s...


Sweet, sexy and smart! The hours of studying and work that goes into becoming a pilot is no joke. Whether they did it through a college program or at a flight school, they dedicated so much time and a lot of money to finally be able to pursue their dream. I also find these men to be super sweet while being able to look hunky behind the controls. Which to me if you are a guy and you are all of the three S’s then that is the deal breaker for me!

It is a job for all ages.


Even once your man is retired, that doesn’t mean the flying is over yet. Aviation is friendly for all ages as long as the medical is valid, haha! How sweet will that be to be retired, and be able to vacation in the Bahamas, fly to see the grandchildren or perhaps just go be up in the sky for a beautiful sunset? Having a pilot in your life will never be old. Even if he is told the sad moment he is no longer able to fly, that is OK that is what safety pilot’s are for!

Women love a man in uniform.

That is a well-known fact. Whether he is driving a cop car, putting out a house fire or flying a plane, it is all of our weakness.

They're confident.

Pilots are waiting to be traveling as a passenger to hear the question, “Do we have a certified pilot on board”? That will be their time to shine and save the day by taking the controls in their own hands. When you are up in the sky with a pilot you feel safe, he’s close beside you, he’s communicating on the radio and he has a bunch of confidence in himself while being high up in the sky.

I know not every female will agree, or say they love pilots. For the most part majority of women find being a pilot an attractive career. Whether aviation is their job or a hobby I would recommend all the ladies I know to at least experience it.

I Drifted But Now I'm Reaching Out

I'm not going to isolate myself anymore.

I’ve noticed that since I started college, I dropped a lot of habits. Some were habits that I really needed to get rid of, such as picking at my nails and snacking way too much. Other habits, though, I really shouldn’t have dropped. Maybe I just got too busy or lazy, or maybe it was just something for the high school me. Yeah, I’ve changed a lot in college but I’m going to try and get back into the good habits I had.

College gave me a lot of time. Suddenly I had all this free time and I realized that it was entirely up to me what I wanted to do with it. The freedom is really great, I won’t deny that, but what I noticed was that I found myself alone a lot.

Maybe it was my intention that some days I just wanted some alone time, but more often than not I found myself realizing that I hadn’t seen or talked to friends in a while. I realized I wasn’t hanging out with people anymore. I was alone.

Now, I know the importance of myself reaching out. Before I always worried that there was a reason I wasn’t seeing or talking to people as often, I mean, there was school so maybe everyone was just busy.

But I feared that I was missing out on so much was because I was unwanted in those moments. After gaining confidence, I've decided won’t isolate myself anymore. I’m an outgoing person, but I won’t be selectively outgoing anymore.

In high school, I could barely go two classrooms down without seeing someone and stopping to talk to them, and I want college to be the same way. It’s really impossible to know everyone at your college but reaching out isn’t that hard for me to do, I’ve just been lazy. I haven’t put in as much effort as I should be putting in and I know that if I want to keep some of the amazing friendships that I currently have, I need to not be distant.

It’s easy to drift away when emotions and events start piling up. Sometimes, the only thing I want to do is just lay in bed and not think about my to-do lists and schedules and problems that I have.

Once I start doing that though, I get sucked in and it becomes so hard to get the energy to get up and move. I don’t want that to be the case anymore. I don’t want to hide away with the “what ifs” and speculation as to why I didn’t go or get invited. From now on, I’m just going to go, and then see what happens.

To My Best Friends, Thank You

I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.

I have gone through many friends in the past few years, some that lasted a while some that only lasted a few months, but you know exactly when you found your perfect person, soulmate, best friend, the one that will never get away. It’s the friends that stick with you through the toughest times and stay.

The ones you call at 3:00 a.m. because you got into a fight with your boyfriend and can’t sleep and they stay on the phone until your ready to sleep. The ones that you can count on to pick you up because you need a ride no matter where you are.

Dear Best Friends,

I just wanted to thank you for being you and for letting me be me. Thank you for letting me feel so much like myself when I’m with you. Thank you for sharing in my happiest moments, and for listening to my saddest stories and giving compassion and empathy from wherever you are. Thank you for being the only person I ever want to confide in. Thank you for being the most beautiful person, inside and out.

Thank you for making the world a better place, just by being in it. Thank you for defining selfless, always putting others before yourself, you are going to change the world just as much as you have changed mine. Thank you for all the memories we made at Disney this year on our senior trip. Thank you for practically being my second Mom.

Thank you for setting the bar so high and making it impossible to find another friend as good as you. Thank you for making these past years we have been friends feel like forever and for giving me enough memories to last a lifetime, but not ending there.

Thank you for making me hurt when I miss you, but for taking the hurt away when I see you. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for the absolute privilege of being able to call you my best friend, thank you for being my person. Thank you for giving me these reasons, and a million more, to be thankful for.

I sometimes find myself looking back on my life and realizing how huge of a part you have played in keeping me steady when the rest of my world has been falling apart. How you have known what to say and do in the moments when I have felt all control slipping through my fingers.

Even if it’s just dropping everything and taking me for coffee, shopping and listening to me try to untangle the mess I call my life. Thank you for those days when the rest of the world is against me, for making me feel less alone. For believing every silly dream which enters my head and being excited for me about things which no one else understands. Thank you for always validating my emotions, for taking my side, for telling me when I’m wrong, for being honest.
