And all because in the photo taken in the cockpit Boeing 757 Delta Airlines, not the usual crew. Or rather, very unusual. Moreover, both pilots are women, so they are still mother and daughter! The aircraft commander Wendy of rekson the entire family is in aviation. Her father was a pilot husband flies for American Airlines and both daughters are also pilots. One of the daughters named Kelly and was flying at the time, with mom as co-pilot.

Write that according to industry research, over the next 20 years the aviation industry will need 790 000 civil aviation pilots and 754 000 service technicians.
