Riyadh — The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has issued five licenses for Saudi female pilots permitting them to work as captains on Saudi Arabian Airlines aircraft.

The issuance of licenses to Saudi women is part of GACA’s move to empower Saudi women to work in the aviation sector which is one of the objectives of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

A large number of women were recently employed in GACA and in service providing companies in technical fields.
