Simba, a guinea pig from Forest Hills, NJ, fulfilled a lifelong dream last week when he aced his pilot’s exam. The piggy has also secured funding to launch a charter service.
The service, which operates out of Teterboro Airport, flies internationally on a modified Barbie Edition Boeing 727.
“It’s a bit dated,” said aviation expert Jane Ciabattari. “But Simba’s really tricked out the interior, and it’s super roomy. He can still charge top dollar and attract high profile clients, even if the plane itself is an older model.”
His first client is Roc-a-Chilla, Jay-Z’s pet chinchilla.
