If there is one thing pilots like more than aviation, it’s sharing that passion with the rest of the world. In today’s social media frenzy, there is no shortage of places to do just that.
Instagram has tons of great aviation content, but it can be hard to find the accounts that are telling great stories on a regular basis. Aside from following our adventures on Instagram, here are five others that we enjoy.
This young man is constantly sharing great aviation content. He flies a variety of airplanes and is always embracing a new flying adventure.
One wheelin’ the 120 down 22L… First time flying the #redwagon in a while because I’ve been too busy… Awesome sunset flight tonight. @holtzy_vref nailed a bunch of landings too. #falconfield #cessna #120 #redwagon #tailwheel #whoneedsacenterlineanyways #taildragger #AZflying #instaplane #instapilot #instagramaviation #weeee #AZaerolife
As an air taxi service in the great state of Alaska, this account is full of scenery, airplanes and more. It’s fascinating to learn about the art of flying in Alaska and some of the struggles they encounter, too. One of our long-term goals is to fly to Alaska in the Pacer.

I enjoy following the EAA feed because they are always sharing interesting aircraft or great photos. Of course, this account comes alive each July during EAA AirVenture and is a great way to keep up with what’s going on that particular week.
Similar to the first account, this one is full of great photography and aviation adventures. Regular updates and good captions make Sean’s account a welcome part of my Instagram feed.

The combination of pilot and photographer comes alive here! Some great shots with captions to make you feel part of the experience. Updated regularly, too!
Gene Soucy flying his night airshow routine perfectly inside the field of view of my lens. This photo is dedicated to all my Instagram friends that I was able to meet up with at this year’s show. #SNF16 #SUNnFUN #avgeek #genesoucy #whyifly #agcat #nightairshow #fireworks #longexposure #nightphotography #canonphotography #igaviation #instaaviation #instaplane #pilotlife #biplane #radialengine
