The friendly skies just got a little bit more heavenly.

Meet 32-year-old Swedish airline pilot Maria Pettersson, who will make you want to book your next trip on Ryanair.

She’s been at it for seven years now, and she told the Daily Mail last year that “My story is about strong females in a male dominated environment,” she went on. “Proving that we are just as good as them. Believing in ourselves and keeping a positive attitude towards life.”
