Mother-daughter Duo Becomes First To Pilot A Commercial Plane Together & Creates History



Flying seems to be a passion for their entire family as Suzy's husband Doug and her son Mark are also pilots.
A mother and her daughter from the US have made history as they became the first mother-daughter pair to fly a commercial plane together.

Captain Suzy Garrett has been a pilot for over 30 years. Recently, she shared the cockpit with her daughter and first officer Donna Garret. Both of them are currently employed with SkyWest Airlines in the US.

By flying together, Suzy and Donna became the first mother-daughter duo to fly a commercial plane together. Flying seems to be a passion for their entire family as Suzy's husband Doug and her son Mark are also pilots.

"We absolutely love our 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," Suzy told the SkyWest Airlines blog before the historic flight with her daughter.

Donna said she was exposed to aviation from a very early age and decided to become a pilot because of her parents' passion and love for flying.

"I was exposed to the world, which was a big inspiration. Experiencing my mom and dad's lifestyle was wonderful. It exposed me to the possibilities the industry offered," said Donna.

Suzy, who took her first flight over 30 years ago, says scheduling is the main reason why she has been with SkyWest for so long.

"I love it! I really love it. It's neat having your kid experience what you've gotten to experience. She's part of the SkyWest family. I think it's going to be a great career for her. She likes having variety and excitement in her life," she said about being airborne with her daughter.
