St. George (USA): A mother-daughter duo created history as they are the first mother-daughter duo to pilot a commercial plane together. The mother, Captain Suzy Garett has been flying planes from the last 30 years. Her daughter, first officer Donna Garret and Suzy shared the cockpit as both of them are currently employed with SkyWest Airlines in the US.
The entire Garret family seems to be passionate about flying as all four them, including Suzy's husband Doug and her son Mark, are pilots too.
Before creating the history, Suzy spoke to SkyWest Airlines blog. She said that they absolutely love their jobs. "You don't see that too much in other occupations. None of our kids were thinking about becoming pilots, but when you start looking at other careers that are out there, sitting in an office, and then see how happy we are - it opened their eyes," she added.
The daughter, Donna said that she was exposed to the world of flying from a very tender age. She decided to become a pilot because of her parents' passion and love for flying.
Suzy said that she really loves flying with her daughter. Donna is a part of the SkyWest family. Suzy thinks it is going to be a great career for her daughter. "She likes having variety and excitement in her life," Suzy further added.
