This isn't the first time that Saudi women have been a part of the air industry

Now, it's not a complete rarity to find a Saudi woman working as a stewardess in the Middle East but it's great to know that opportunities for local women are opening up.

Just recently, five Saudi women were given their General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) piloting licenses. The GACA licenses will enable those women to work with both private and commercial air companies.

In March this year, Saudi authorities started training programs for Saudi women interested in becoming air controllers. Actual pilot training scholarship programs have started too.

Hopefully, we keep seeing more and more of these progressions and inclusion of Saudi women in the workforce.
