EGYPTAIR Hosts the Fifth Annual Meeting of the Arabian Section of the Ninety-Nines Female Pilots Organization from 27 to 29 October 2017. The "Learn How To Fly!" Training Day will be conducted in EGYPTAIR Training Academy.
The Ninety-Nines is the international organization of women pilots that promotes advancement of aviation through education, scholarships, and mutual support while honoring our unique history and sharing its members' passion for flight. To quote Amelia Earhart, "fly for the fun of it!” Established in 1929 by 99 women pilots, the members of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots, are represented in all areas of aviation today.
Alia Al Twal
First Officer A320 Royal Jordanian. Governor of the Arabian Section since 2011 Alia is the FIRST Arab governor of the Arabian Section.
The Arabian section of the Ninety-Nines is the fastest growing section over-seas. Under the dynamic input of Alia Twal, Governor of the Arabian section, the number of members has quadrupled in just two years to reach more than 105 members today.
Challenges faced by female pilots in this part of the world are in many aspects comparable to those faced by the 99 pioneers that set up the association almost hundred years ago. The Arabian section of the Ninety-Nines is this amazing sisterhood made of strong friendships amongst its members.
EGYPTAIR Training Academy will conduct a training day for the members of the organization during the Fifth Annual Meeting, on 29 October 2017. The day will include several activities for the guests, such as, Welcome Ceremony, Facility Tours, Simulators Training, and Emergency and Evacuation Training.
Members will be divided into groups for each activity, spending the whole day in EGYPTAIR Training Academy.
In this group, each member will learn the feeling of Fly by Wire, as not all the members are airliners, so those who are not in the Airlines and flies Jet Airplanes will learn how to manage the Jet Airlines by flying one approach, between take off, and some maneuvers, approach and landing.
