As Eser talks about her profession,”Being a pilot was my childhood dream. I was kind of a tomboy so I always wanted to fly an F16, but since I’m against war, violence and armies, flying big jets is so much better.”
She further says, “The eternal blue of the sky, fluffy clouds and the ability to visit countries far, far away have always had a big attraction on me. My parents were afraid of flying so I was the only one in the family who had a crush on the sky.”
She said: “The best part of the job is that is never gets boring and we always get to see the sun when you climb over the clouds on rainy days.
Eser currently stays in Turkey and flies Boeing 737 aircraft to destinations in Europe and the Middle East for the low-cost carrier. She also hopes that many and many women take this profession as it is male dominated one.
