In a first, Rosheen Saleem Vazeer becomes the first Pakistani woman to receive the AME (European Aircraft Maintenance Engineer) license. Rosheen is a student of CoA (Centre of Aviation). She was enrolled at the said institute for a three years long EASA Modular Aircraft Maintenance Engineering program. She completed her three years of training.
After gaining the European AME license, now she can work in 180 countries across the globe, basically wherever EASA standards are applicable.
With her achievement, it must be kept in mind that the field of Aircraft Engineering is quite unusual for women when it comes to choosing a career path. Center of Aviation provides opportunities to women for attaining this license on its Islamabad and Karachi campuses.
According to Talha Izhar, Managing Director CoA, the aviation sector can contribute significantly to the country’s economy. He added that the license costs about 8 million all across the world but they are providing it in less than 1 million.
“We highly encourage girls to undertake this course, and we offer both need and merit-based scholarships to support their studies. Our partner network within Pakistan and abroad allows us to deliver high-quality education in Pakistan and provide a practical experience which is a core part of this program” – said MD Talha.
