Posted 11 April 2018 · Add Comment

The Arabian Section of the Ninety Nines has announced the first Scholarship given to its member is Hanane Chaabna from Algeria.

 

The joint programme is between Airways Aviation and the Arabian Section of the Ninety Nines.

“As part of our commitment to encourage future generations to join the growing field of Aviation, Airways Aviation Academy has become a lifetime sponsor for the Arabian Section of the Ninety Nines,” said Alia Twal governor of the Arabian Section of the Ninety Nines.

“Over the past five years, Airways has sponsored every annual gathering for the Arabian Ninety Nines, and provided discounts and scholarship to 30 females, some of which are flying a commercial aircraft.

“Airways recently launched a joint scholarship program with the Arabian Ninety Nines that allows us to jointly screen, and sponsor, female student pilots.  The first to benefit from this scholarship is Hanane Chaabna who is currently training at Airways in Oxford, UK.  Hanane”s dream of becoming a pilot was almost cut short due to family circumstances, but she managed to apply for, and win, the first Airways/Ninety Nines Scholarship by showing her dedication and determination.”

Twal added: “Encouraging and support women is our goal from this joint agreement. We are working together with Airways Aviation to increase the number of women pilots and encouraging more women to choose aviation as a career. . With the support of Airways Aviation, I believe we will create difference.”
