A Pilot's Best Friend

By Tawanda Chieza

June 2016

It was my dream to become an airline pilot since I was 6 years old.

At age 19, I began my type rating on the Next-Generation 737, and I always loved the design philosophy. Even to a brand-new 200-hour cadet pilot, it was easy to see that Boeing made "pilot friendly" airplanes.

It's a joy to fly, and now at age 26 I've taken my command and genuinely look forward to every flight.

At the controls — a dream come true.
