Mozah Bint Marwan Al Maktoum

Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Marwan Al Maktoum achievements are just as impressive as her family lineage.

The youngest in her class at the Oxford Aviation, she was only 17 when she was admitted. She obtained her commercial pilot licence first and then later joined the Dubai Police Airwing as first lieutenant pilot, becoming the first woman in the UAE and the Gulf Region, and the first member of the Royal Family in aviation. She holds a bachelor’s degree in air transport management from Coventry University, UK, and Emirates Aviation University.

Her ambitions are only matched by her determination to create a legacy of her own, opening doors and enabling other women to enter a career in aviation.

With this mission in mind, she set in motion the establishment of ‘Shehana’, the Women in Aviation Association, with the sole purpose to create opportunities and a framework for increasing the number of women joining the aviation sector.

Her motto is: ‘Reach altitude with the right attitude.’
