There’s no doubt that the ruling family of Dubai is full of talented individuals. So it comes as no surprise that the first female pilot in Dubai is an Al Maktoum. With her family leading the way in congratulating her milestone achievement, Sheikha Mozah Al Maktoum has undertaken her first assisted flight as a commercial pilot.

Finally..wings and bars today.

Having gained her commercial pilot license back in April of last year, it was her cousin Sheikha Latifa who was first to post her congratulations on Instagram. Publishing a picture of Mozah Al Maktoum in full uniform and writing in Arabic, “Mozah Marwan. My sister’s daughter. The first female pilot in the family, who is on her first assisted flight as a commercial pilot for Emirates. As long as you can dream it, you can achieve it.”

Other members to join the celebrations included Shaikha Maitha Bint Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum saying, “So proud of you cousin” and Sheikh Marwan bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum also sending well wishes through the social media platform. Here's to the continuation of female empowerment in the region.
