Up, up, and away! John-David Duggar has a pilot’s license and he’s clearly putting in to use, as seen in a new photo posted to the Duggar Family Official Facebook page on Aug. 27. The Counting On star’s younger sisters were all smiles while sitting in the back of the small plane.

“The girls were flying with John-David while they were working on #HappyHeart,” the caption read. Fans were shocked the reality star was piloting with such precious cargo. “What can’t that guy do? Those kids are all so diversified,” one commented. “I have read so much criticism about this family. How many of you have a plane and can fly it?” another wrote, while a third chimed in: “Hope none of the Duggars got motion sickness! I know they are all prone to it.”

Johannah Duggar, Jennifer Duggar, Jordyn-Grace Duggar, and Josie Duggar looked fearless and several of the commenters addressed how they were “brave” young girls. John-David’s niece Mackynzie was also there for the fun-filled flight. The youngest Duggar girls recently recorded their album Happy Heart and it’s full of hymns and Christian songs with their own flare. And it looks like they got some of their project completed on the plane!

John-David has also piloted the plane with his fiancée in tow, so he’s got some experience. John and Abbie Grace Burnett share a cute snap in the air together on July 15, and in the shot, Abbie has her arm around her beau. “Exploring cloud nine :),” it read. Wedding bells will be ringing soon, as the couple is allegedly registered at Bed Bath & Beyond, and their nuptials are reportedly set for Jan. 19, 2019. We can’t wait to see them take their love to new heights!
