Egyptian Pilot Nevine Darwish Just Made History on Women’s Day

Celebrating Women’s Day, Egyptian Pilot Nevine Darwish, became the first Arab woman to fly the world’s largest A380 plane alongside Alia El-Muhairi, UAE’s youngest female pilot. The two pilots flew the plane from Dubai to Vienna and back.

Darwish said that it was a pleasure to work alongside Alia and said “she makes me proud because she is an example of what a female generation can achieve.” Muhairi called captain a role-model and inspiration to all women around the world.

WE SAID THIS: Arab women sure are making us proud on this day!
