"Don't be afraid to dream big, and don't be intimidated to dream of different life", says Captain Carol Rabadi.

Captain Carol Rabadi decided to pursue a career in aviation as a child, when she flew in a jump seat on board a flight from Cyprus back to Jordan.
She attended Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida where she earned a Bachelor's degree in aeronautical science.
She joined Royal Jordanian in 1999, two months after graduating.
In 2009 she became the second Female Captain in the history of Jordan.

Initially, Captain Carol Rabadi worked as part of the airline's ground crew for two years, which was typical of the airline's recruitment policy for cadet pilots at the time.
Captain Carol Rabadi flew as a co-pilot for six years, flying on the Airbus A320 family and A340. She was then upgraded to Captain on Embraer.

She was Captain on the first Royal Jordanian all-female flight crew.

Captain Carol Rabadi is a member of the Arabian section of the Ninety-Nines, the international organisation of female pilots.
