EP45 – Behind The Scenes on Air Travel and the Pilot Gender Gap, with Pilot Shanelly

Shannon Pereira, maybe better known as Pilot Shanelly, is a commercial airline pilot for Jet Blue, a world-traveler, dog-rescuer, and unapologetic dancer.


On this episode of The Stokecast, she shares a unique perspective on the behind-the-scenes backbone of the travel industry, as well as commentary around being a female pilot when even today only 6% of pilots are women.

Shannon, Emily, and Jonathan explore these topics as they relate to the broader adventure travel industry, and also dig into Shannon’s experiences as a traveler, athlete, and how she played a part in Emily adopting her dog from Haiti.
