Swedish pilot and Instagram influencer Maria Fagerström uses Instagram to share her work as a pilot, her travels, and her home with her boyfriend with her nearly 500,000 followers.

In her bio, she promises, "I'm here to give YOU a bit of insight into the aviation world," and she follows through. Fagerström responds to comments, and she sometimes makes posts about certain questions that come up again and again.

She shared some common things people don't know about being a pilot with Business Insider.

1. Pilots are allowed to sleep while working, although not both at the same time. "It’s called ‘controlled rest’ and there are of course procedures to follow, like setting a timer," Fagerström told Business Insider.

2. Flying is actually relaxing, "once we’re up in the air and at cruising level," if the weather is good.

3. For Fagerström, the best part of the job is the "feeling after touching down after a tricky approach, and you’ve done well with maneuvering the aircraft all the way from start to finish."
