17 Instagram Plane Spotters I Follow And You Must Follow Too

Instagram says that there are 20,720 accounts with the word aviation somewhere in their account profile. This makes it really difficult to follow all these people. However, there are a few whom I follow and categorize them as #avgeeks in their own right. These are people who seem to eat, sleep, and drink aviation 24/7, as much as I do.

Please check out these accounts and follow the folks here as I guarantee you that you’ll get a very good feel for the aviation industry. They capture the essence of aviation. They are not in any particular order, but I’m going to be cheeky and start with my very own account.

I give you a look into my travels through photography. It could be an airport lounge, an airplane interior, a traveler or a piece of architecture. The idea is to let you see the world as I see it when I travel with the hope that you’ll be inspired to travel on your own.

James has a way of capturing airplanes just at the right moment that makes you go Whoa! He shares most most photos from Sydney. I’m always thinking I need to go find him the next time I’m at SYD. I’ll tell you a secret, its a toss up between James and Sam who you will learn about later as to who is my favorite Aviation Instagrammer.

I met Daniel a few years ago in Berlin. We were both in the Finnair booth at the same time. We introduced ourselves and chatted for a bit. The friendship was sealed via our mutual love for airplanes. Daniel flies mostly in business or first class and makes videos about it for YouTube. The videos are quite well done and lengthy, but you get the feel like you took the flight with him.

I’ve never met Mark, but, I live vicariously through his First and Business Class travels and him always drinking bubbly stuff on his flights and on the ground. You can too and be inspired to do the same.

I finally met Josh in March of 2018 in Berlin. I’ve been following him online for a while now and also have spoken online as well. He’s just as personable in person as on his videos. He too makes you feel like you’re on the flight.

I met David only this year in Berlin; one of the great things about visiting travel conventions is that you get to network with fellow #avgeeks. I like David’s well, simplistic view of aviation. He also does a show that just talks aviation too. Plus he gives you a good look into the entire flight experience in all cabins.

While James is only 17, that does not stop him from having a good eye for aviation geekness. I love it when young people get into aviation. I remember how happy I was when I took my first flight at 9 and first commercial flight at 15. It’s great to see aviation from James’ perspective. James also contributes to the Londonspotter account as well.

I don’t know this guy’s name, but I love his views from the cockpit. Plus we went to the same school so that’s always a plus and he’s counting countries too.


Pilot Patrick

I’m new to this guy, but I find his post very good and quite informative. Maybe I’ll meet him on a flight one day or in Berlin where he is based. Pilot Patrick is kind of a rockstar it seems though and a model.
