South Sudan’s first female pilot Aluel Bol Aluenge has ascended to the position of captain with major American airline organization Delta Air Lines in the wake of working with Ethiopian Airlines and FlyDubai.
34-year-old Aluel Bol was celebrated in 2011 subsequent to finishing an aeronautics training in the United States with the help of the South Sudanese government.
“I feel extremely delighted especially at the mere thought of achieving my dream. As a child growing up, I always wanted to be a pilot and my late dad made sure that he did all what it takes to make me succeed,” said Bol seven years ago.
She is being celebrated again for rising up the ladder to become a captain at one of the leading airline companies in the world.
Local news media widely reported her success and friends and family congratulated her on social media. “#SouthSudan first woman pilot Aluel Bol becomes a captain at @Delta Airlines. Congratulations Capt. Aluel!” says Twitter user Sisi Majok.
