"Being a pilot is truly the most amazing job you can ever have. I can't explain what it's like to be up at 50,000 feet in a corporate jet, looking down on the curvature of the world," said Erika."Just thinking I'm up here doing this. It's the things you get to see and the people you get to meet that make the job so special. No two days are the same."
