Posted 29 March 2017 · Add Comment

As part of the programme, 24 female students from Al Jawaher Primary School attended a reading session at Etihad Airways' Academy in Abu Dhabi, hosted by First Officer, Aisha Al Mansouri and Second Officer Fatima Al Zahery. The theme for the session was “Pilot of the Future.” The wider initiative reflects the commitment of government entities to support a culture of reading and stimulate knowledge amongst the next generation of leaders across all fields. Senior vice president, corporate and international Affairs at Etihad Aviation Group, Hareb Mubarak Al Muhairy, said: “We are proud to see our UAE national pilots giving their time on a voluntary basis to meet students and encourage them to read more. This first-of-its-kind initiative comes at a perfect time as the UAE marks National Reading Month, in line with the vision of the UAE's leaders. “As part of this initiative, we have developed various activities to educate youngsters about the airline industry and encourage thinking about non-traditional career paths. We are also seeking to instil a culture of reading so the quest for knowledge begins at an early age. Our pilots are role models in so many ways and their highly specialised work promotes a knowledge-based economy.”
