Sheikha Mozah bint Saeed bin Rashid has just become the first royal from the Al Maktoum family to fly a commercial plane.
My niece @mozahmm our first female pilot from the family on her first assisted flight as a commercial pilot. Proud of you ! The sky is not the limit. As long as you can dream it you can achieve it. موزة مروان. بنت إختي. أول طيار أنثى فالعائلة. اليوم أول يوم تطير كمساعد طيار على طيران الإمارات. نفتخر بك يا موزة. اللهم وفقك في كل الخير الذي تتمنينه.
Sheikha Mozah is Dubai-ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s niece, and the whole family showed her support and offered congratulations on social media on Sunday, after piloting the plane.
Sheikah Mozah passed the commercial test in April of last year, but only now did she fly an assisted Emirates plane. She’s been documenting this achievement on her Instagram, with photos showing her certificate and the view from the top.
She also snapped an image of the completed flight, captioning the photo: “stress free and happy.”
Sheikha Moza looks as though she’s very proud of herself, as she should be. She’s breaking social norms for all women in royal families.
