Counting On star Joy-Anna Forsyth left for Texas to celebrate Thanksgiving with her husband Austin. The day before their road trip, she also revealed something fans might not know about Austin. They already heard he’s a qualified EMS medic, and now, we hear he’s got other skills as well.
Counting On – Austin’s multi-talented and more than an EMS medic
In September this year, Austin joined the rest of the Duggars who volunteered assistance in the Bahamas. When Austin returned, we noted that Joy-Anna Anna explained about his medic training. We reported, “Austin is the only one with EMT training. In a disaster situation, it might be useful to have the firefighter training that Jana and John David do.” And, now she revealed her multi-talented husband also has other skills we haven’t seen on Counting On.
In her post on Instagram, Joy shared a picture of her, John and Abbie in a plane. She captioned it with, ” Always love getting to spend time with you, @johnandabbie!” She added, “Headed to help a friend do a remodel project… what are y’all doing this weekend?!?” Then she added the new information about Austin, writing, “Fun fact!! Both of our husbands are pilots!!✈️⛅️.”
Fans react to the new skill that Austin has
Counting On fans reacted to the news that Austin’s also a pilot. One said, “That’s awesome! I didn’t know Austin was a pilot!” Another also seemed surprised that Joy-Anna mentioned both their husbands are skilled pilots. Meanwhile, yet another fan noted their surprise saying, “I didn’t know Austin was a pilot!” There are other pilots apart from John in the Duggar family. One fan reminded others, “That’s cool, I knew John was a pilot but I didn’t know Austin was too! That’s so cool, you have many pilots in the family.”
Cheatsheet also reminded fans about the Duggar passion for pilots. They wrote, “It has long been known that John Duggar, who is married to Abbie Burnett, has his pilot’s license. In an article about how Jim Bob Duggar ensures employment for his Counting On family, we mentioned he’s getting more planes and so it’s useful that not only John flies. Maybe they plan an air service at some time in the future.
Other Counting On Duggars who fly planes
Interestingly, Josiah Duggar also flies. He’s got a helicopter license. In September alarmed neighbors reported seeing him land a helicopter in his yard. At the time, it appeared the Counting On star never actually broke any aviation rules.
