Maria Petersson is a Ryanair pilot. When “her” voice is heard during a welcoming message, the passengers are a little bit surprised because it is common that being a pilot is more a male oriented career than a female.
However, this is not the only thing which surprises us when we start looking closer to Petersson’s life. She is an Instagram Queen with over 350 thousand followers for her shared selfies.
Petersson is from Sweden, but due to the weather conditions she preferred to live in Italy. After she decided to do so, she opened her Instagram account to share her moments with her family. But, soon after she started to take selfies in a Boeing, she was strictly started to be followed by more and more people everyday.
Inside the cockpit, with or without her cabin crew, on her vacations and destinations she went, the interest in her photos lead her even to open her own Blog: Pilot Maria.
She shares also the difficulties on the way of being a pilot in her blog starting from her mails she received with the addressing “Mr.Petersson” , again a point out of the male oriented career choice.
However, she finally is where she really wanted to be and thanks to her career she can now go anywhere she desires all over the World and take as many vacations as possible in different locations.
From here you can reach her Instagram account.
When she does not work, she likes to practice yoga which totally fits to her positive way of thinking and living and watching the World from over 38 thousand feet.
