Erica Chbeir

Rota Hoteit is no longer the only female airline pilot in Lebanon as Erica Chbeir has recently joined the Middle East Airlines and is currently a First Officer aka Copilot.

Given that only 3 percent of the airline pilots around the world are women, I think it’s great to see two female pilots.

Rola Hoteit

Thumbs up to these women for being role models to many aviation enthusiasts and especially to Rota Hoteitfor paving the way for other women. Rola has been with the Middle East Airlines for 21 years now and was selected out of 2000 applicants back when she applied.

It is worth noting that the first woman to ever fly an airplane in the Middle East was Genevieve Gemayel, back in 1928.
