Jake Pavelka's post-Bachelor: On the Wings of Love career in Hollywood hasn't exactly taken off -- so the former airline pilot has hit the skies once again!

A tipster tells that Pavelka, 33, piloted an Oct. 24 Delta flight from Atlanta to Augusta, Ga. (Pavelka's rep confirms to Us that he is indeed flying planes again.)

"The flight attendant asked us not to tell anyone because he didn't want it to be known," the passenger says. "When they announced our captain they just said, 'Your captain today is Jake'."

One day before, another spy saw Pavelka hanging out in in the Delta crew lounge at Atlanta airport. "His 15 minutes must really be up," the source quips to Us. "Because he is not only working, but on the weekend! Most pilots don't want those shifts!"

Since Bachelor wrapped this past spring, Pavelka competed on Dancing with the Stars and played a reality star on an Aug. 22 episode of the Lifetime TV series Drop Dead Diva.  After his bitter  breakup with fiance Vienna Girardi over the summer, he stepped out with new girlfriend Meghan Jones at a Nov. 1 event in Hollywood.
