A British Airways captain's charming children's books about the adventures of two young pilots, Polly & Ollie, written to help reduce fear of flying, has now become a YouTube cartoon series.

In 'Let's Go See', by Rob Johnson, the pilots travel to famous global landmarks accompanied by the 'Junior Jets' – an eclectic gang of children that act as role models to young people.

Pilot Polly & Pilot Ollie kicked off their animated adventures this week with a trip to the Pyramids of Egypt. The series will then see them travel to New York, the Amazon Rainforest, Machu Picchu and Uluru – all aboard their very own solar-powered jet plane, JJ-1.

Long-haul pilot Rob started telling his children bedtime stories to fill the gaps when he was working away from home.

The stories then became a series of bestselling books about the adventures of two Pilots - Polly & Ollie.

Rob said: 'When my children were young it was difficult for them to understand where I was when I disappeared on a long-haul flight. I invented Pilot Polly & Pilot Ollie to help them understand my job as a BA Captain.

'The boys loved the stories, so we decided to publish them as books and, tens of thousands of sales later, the Pilots have made it onto the small screen in their first animated series.

However, thanks to a heavy-weight cast (Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt) this is as gripping as they come.

'The books aimed to explain how flying works and what happens at airports. In the animated series we get to see different countries and cultures in the backdrop of some of the world's most famous places.

'Our objective has always been to entertain but also to educate and inspire young people - and the animated series shows viewers a world full of wonder.

'They can visit the pyramids in Egypt or head to New York and experience places they can't see in real life right now.'

'Babish' expands as pandemic boosts YouTube cooking shows

  'Babish' expands as pandemic boosts YouTube cooking shows NEW YORK (AP) — Mac and cheese, 18th-century style. A seven-course meal using only ingredients from a convenience store. A meal that is literally on fire. Four episodes into her new YouTube show, “Stump Sohla,” part of the expanding “Babish Culinary Universe" channel, Sohla El-Waylly has yet to be stumped by a food challenge. El-Waylly became a familiar face on YouTube as a standout on Bon Appetit's test kitchen channel. But during the nationwide racial reckoning following the police killing of George Floyd, she was among members of the test kitchen who accused the channel's owner, Conde Nast, of discriminatory practices.

Rob told MailOnline Travel that he has been flying cargo around the world, but can't wait to welcome children back on board again.

He said: 'Travelling somewhere new is an exciting and magical experience for children and welcoming them onboard again is something I'm looking forward to. They get so excited when they come and visit the flight-deck and see all of the dials, switches and computer screens we have – and love to ask questions.

'Whether it is business or leisure, the flying experience is often the gateway to something new and for me as a pilot, I love being part of people's adventures.'
