9 African female pilots dominating the African aviation industry

Elizabeth Ofosuah Johnson December 07, 2018

Esther Mbabazi

At 24, Esther became one of Rwanda’s most-revered certified private and commercial pilots and the first female in Rwanda to become certified as a commercial airline pilot. Her dream was birthed out of the death of her dad who passed away in an air crash when she was a child.

Now at 30, Esther is still making great strides in her home country Rwanda and visits schools to talk to girls who dream of entering the aviation field which is male-dominated. She flies for RwandAir, the country’s national airline.
