What is Veggie Pilot?

A resource for vegan flight crew.

 
 

I initially created Veggie Pilot because they were no resources online for pilots and flight attendants who wanted to go vegan or for vegans who wanted to join the airline industry. I had been a vegan airline pilot for 5 years and had perfected my methods to eating healthy on the job. Traveling as a vegan can be difficult but with the right know-how it can be very manageable. I started out by posting recipes and blog posts on how to pack for trips. From there I started making videos with flight crews trying different vegan restaurants in the cities we visited. Pretty soon my instagram was growing quickly and I had a large following flight crew and non flight crew alike.

Since it's inception, Veggie Pilot has grown tremendously with over 16,000 followers on social media. It has also been written up in online publications such as Metro UK and PETA 

With such a large following I have worked on using the influence for positive change  in the local community of Los Angeles through animal shelter fundraisers and selling t-shirts to raise money for the local Boys and Girls Club.
