World Pilots’ Day is celebrated in honor of the first flight made by Fesa Evrensev, the first pilot to receive a brevet in Turkey on April 26.
Since then, the celebration has been acknowledged on the same day. World Pilots’ Day 2020 was celebrated on Sunday, April 26, and Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde acknowledged the day to pay honor to her husband, Captain Matthew Ekeinde.
In the mood of the celebration, the actress took to her official Instagram page to pay respect to her pilot husband. Although Omotola stated that she has not heard about Pilot’s Day until recently, she said that it was better late to celebrate it than never.
Describing her husband as one of the best pilots that Africa has produced, the film star said that his passengers have attested that he has the smoothest landing ever.
