EPISODE 14 | Matt Ayer | The Veggie Pilot


If you’re lucky enough to be on one of Compass Airlines captain Matt Ayer’s flights, you’ll be happy to know you’re not only flying the friendly skies, but also the animal-friendly skies! Matt, who is known across social media as The Veggie Pilot, is known for sharing photos from the plane’s cockpit of his vegan lunches, and for the animal rescue work he squeezes in between flights.

In this episode of the podcast, Matt shares how he overcame his struggles at school to become an airline captain, tells us about some of his favorite vegan dining spots, and explains why animal sanctuaries are way better than zoos.
