Pilot Peter Weber Announces New 'Dream' Job and Shares Its Sentimental Meaning
Spreading his wings! Pilot Peter Weber took to Instagram on Monday to announce an exciting "dream" job with United Airlines.
"My dream finally came true..." the Season 24 Bachelor wrote, accompanied by a slideshow of throwback photos with his parents, Peter Sr. and Barb, whose love story began as employees for United.
"This is one of my first memories of flying with my dad on one of his trips," Peter continued. "Ever since, I’ve dreamt of putting on a United Airlines uniform of my own and flying with my dad as his First Officer all around the world. I am so excited to announce that I will officially be joining United Airlines on May 25th!"
The beloved franchise lead then elaborated on the sentimental meaning of his new position.
"United is more than just an airline to me, it is family. My parents met aboard a United flight my dad was operating while my mom was a flight attendant," he wrote. "I have memories of having my parents listen and critique my welcome aboard announcement as if I were the Captain of that United flight."
Peter added, "You all know flying was my first love, and United is a big reason why. As I begin my career with United I’m hopeful to soon welcome my brother [and fellow pilot] Jack aboard to complete the family legacy and spend a beautiful career flying all around the world together."
Elsewhere, Peter — who previously flew for Delta Air Lines — expressed gratitude for his former employer.
"I have to send a huge thank you to Delta Air Lines," he wrote. "You have allowed me to live out my passion and I could not be more grateful for the opportunity you gave me. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the first class operation that you run. I’m so thankful for all the amazing people I had the honor of working with and wish you all the very best!"
The handsome Southern California native — who now lives in New York City with fellow "Bachelorette" Season 15 alum Dustin Kendrick — concluded his post with encouraging words for Bachelor Nation.
"I would love to remind all of you to never give up on chasing your dreams and what makes you feel most alive. For a while, it seemed as if mine wouldn’t quite become a reality," he wrote. "If it’s worth it to you though, never ever ever give up on achieving that dream. It will only be that much sweeter in the end. I look forward to welcoming you all aboard the friendly skies soon!"
Congrats, Peter! See his entire post below.
