In these days of high airport security and stringent controls, it's not everyone who's allowed into the cockpit - but Tulisa Contostavlos is clearly an exception.

The N-Dubz/X-Factor star had no problems gaining access to the pilot's instruments on her recent flight back from New York.

After jetting back New York this weekend, where she was taking a break with her personal assistant, Gareth Varey, she tweeted this flighty picture of herself to her fans.

Seen here posing in the cockpit of her plane with the captain's hat on, just before take off, saying: "Welcome aboard tulisa airways, hold on to your seats its gonna be a bumpy ride."

Luckily for the passengers, the snap was taken while the plane was still on the ground (rule number one: try face the direction you're travelling in when you're flying a plane).
