Peter Weber gave Hannah Brown pilot wings on ‘The Bachelorette’
Weber made his mark early on in Brown’s season. He exited the limo wearing his pilot uniform and gifted Brown something special that had to do with his profession.
“As a pilot, wings are something that is very symbolic of our love for aviation,” Weber said. “When you earn them, they always give you a set of two. So, that being said, I’d like to give you this pair right here. I’m hopeful that at the end of this journey, you and I can fly away together.”
On his own season of The Bachelor, Brown appeared the first night to return his wings back to him to find his “co-pilot.” Weber is currently single after trying to make things work with multiple contestants from his season.

“I am so excited to announce that I will officially be joining United Airlines on May 25th,” Weber shared. “United is more than just an airline to me, it is family. My parents met aboard a United flight my dad was operating while my mom was a flight attendant.”
Weber continued: “You all know flying was my first love, and United is a big reason why. As I begin my career with United I’m hopeful to soon welcome my brother Jack aboard to complete the family legacy and spend a beautiful career flying all around the world together.”
