“I think my favourite perk of the job is just being able to make someones day”
Aimee said: “I think I inherited a bit of my dads petrolhead genes, because Ive just always been really fascinated and excited by engines, cars and of course, aircraft.
“I literally get paid to fly around these three, beautiful active volcanos, the view never gets old so I guess for me this doesnt feel like working for me, Im just doing what I love.
“The weather around mountains can be very temperamental and can change very quick so every day of flying will never be the same as the last which keeps my job very interesting and exciting.
“I think my favourite perk of the job is just being able to make someones day, simply by doing what I love, flying.”
