Ninety Niner Alia becomes City Liveryman

Posted 31 May 2016 · Add Comment

Alia Twal, the governor of the Arabian chapter of the Ninety-nines, the women pilot association, has been made a 'Liveryman' in the Honourable Air Pilot Company.


Twal, whose full-time job is as a pilot with Royal Jordanian, is only the fourth Jordanian in history to have achieved this position, the others being the late King Hussein; HRH Prince Faisal Al Hussein, and HRH Prince Hamza Al Hussein.
The Company was established as a Guild in 1929 in order to ensure that pilots and navigators of the then fledgling aviation industry were accepted and regarded as professionals. It was modelled on the lines of the Livery Companies of the City of London and in 1956, the Guild was formally recognised as a Livery Company. In 2014, it was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth II.
The Company focuses on sponsoring and encouraging action and activities designed to ensure that aircraft are piloted and navigated safely by individuals who are highly competent, self-reliant, dependable and respected. It fosters the sound education and training of air pilots from the initial training of the young pilot to the specialist training of the more mature. Through charitable activities, education and training, technical committee work, aircrew aptitude testing, scholarships and sponsorship, advice and recognition of the achievements of fellow aviators worldwide.
