When I think of the ideal pilot, I think of a grey -aired ex-Air Force colonel who has spent more time in the air than I’ve spent watching Seinfeld. I know this guy will take me on a no-frills cruise at 35,000 feet. Nothing fancy, just a no-nonsense ride that gets his cargo where they need to go with minimal complications. He’s not much to look at, and probably has outrageously awful farts from his strict diet of peanuts and Chili’s Too. But he’s the best of the best, and I trust this pilot with my life.
But after seeing this Swedish pilot who is St. Elmo’s Fire flames-level hot, I’ve completely reevaluated what I want in someone flying me to all corners of the earth. Her name is Malin Rydqvist, she’s a 29-year-old pilot from Sweden who is based in Croatia, and she likes to post pictures of herself doing yoga poses in exotic places. And they’re prettayyyy prettayyyyyy pretty good. Remind me to start flying to Croatia more after you look at these photos.
I would do unspeakable things to show this girl my puddlejumper’s cockpit.
According to the New York Post, she has her own yoga clothing line called “Fly Me Yoga” and hopes to one day open a yoga resort. Smoking hot, flexible, AND entrepreneurial? Another example of how girls from Sweden are unparalleled..
