Coolest Job Ever

Christina challenged me to find a cheap flight from the Big Island to Maui. Hipmunk really paid off because for $86 I got us to Maui for the day and we had the time of my life. I don’t think from the time we checked in to the time we landed a smile ever left my face. When I was growing up I wanted to be a pilot. Truth be told I wanted to be a lot of things but I have always had a passion for flying for some reason.

When I saw that we didn’t have to go through TSA, had to weight our bags on the same scale that weighed us, I knew I was in heaven. We waited about 30 minutes at the very small “airport terminal”. The co-pilot loaded all of the bags and about 10 minutes later the captain went down a ramp and yelled “going to Maui” and we all followed him (all seven of us). Christina and I were in the first row so we literally sat right behind the pilots which was amazing. The captain was a really nice guy who gave us a quick 2 minute tutorial on buckling up, what to do if anyone gets sick, and to turn off our cell phones. I turned off my cell phone but the person behind Christina had her phone out the entire time. I didn’t turn off my camera and waited for him to say something but he luckily didn’t seem to mind.

I took a video of the take-off and the landing so I may have that posted later if it turns out I think someone may find it half entertaining. When we landed I told the captain “you have the coolest job ever” and he said “I know”. He escorted us away from the aircraft and through a gate and we were in Maui. The only way to travel! It was amazing and I loved every minute.
