Aspiring pilots Emily and Archer always light up our faces when they fly on plane-spotting adventures with their mum.


Eight-year-old Emily has no doubt about what she wants to be when she grows up.

“I want to be a pilot and fly the Jetstar Dreamliner,” she proudly told us after a recent flight.

Every year for their birthdays, Emily and her little brother Archer fly with their mum Kristy from Avalon to Sydney, just so they can watch planes for the day. Pilot uniforms mandatory, of course.

Our crew made their recent plane spotting adventure one to remember, with a special behind the scenes tour.

See you on board again soon, future pilots!
