11th Annual Pilot Photography Issue


Airline pilots continue to drive the global public-health and economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that’s transformed the world. And although the pandemic has changed airline travel, what hasn’t changed is that pilots, by the very nature of their work, continue to witness Mother Nature’s majestic beauty and power while safely transporting passengers and cargo. They observe Earth’s panorama of landscapes through the lens of the four seasons, dynamic meteorological events, complex airline operations, and specific moments in time. And through their exclusive vantage point, they share the grandeur of flight.
