“I’m Captain Yasmeen Fraidoon. I’ve been fascinated with flying since I was a young child , always mesmerized by aircrafts , take offs and landings.

I earned my bachelors degree in Business Information Systems and then joined Bahrain’s national carries Gulf Air cadet pilot program.

In 2008 I earned my ATPL from Qatar Aeronautical College and started flying for Gulf Air as a second officer, I flew the Airbus 320/330/340 and in 2014 became a Captain which made me the first Bahraini and GCC woman to earn the rank of a Captain in a commercial airline, I am also currently a Training Captain in Airbus 320 fleet.
