The Arabian section of the Ninety-Nines
The Ninety-Nines is the international organization of women pilots that promotes advancement of aviation through education, scholarships, and mutual support while honoring its 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.
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 a couple of 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.
