Afghan-American female pilot seeks to accomplish solo flight around the world



Afghan-American women pilots around the world are trying to inspire young women around the world to escape the detour to visit their hometown of Afghanistan and meet the President and civil society activists to protect women's rights.

Shaesta Waiz made a commercial flight to Cubul, which arrived Monday night, leaving her single-engine plane in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The 29 - year - old said the Beechcraft Bonanza A36 is not suitable for flying in the mountains of her home country.

Waiz, the first female pilot in Afghanistan, has been stopped in eleven countries since her trip in Florida in May, and more than eight missionaries have completed her ministry.

At the welcome of government officials and activists in Kabul, "The purpose of this flight around the world is not to establish world records.

"The purpose of this trip is to encourage young girls and boys to believe in themselves, where they come from, and what they can do, regardless of the difficulties they face in their lives," she said.

President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan welcomed Waiz late in his office late Monday and told her how much she respected the courage. Waiz, in turn, promised Afghan women that once her world trip is over, she will find a way to come back and help them.

Waiz and her family moved to the United States in 1987 and became a pilot pilot in Afghanistan.

She planned to travel from Daytona Beach, Florida, in May, to about 25,800 kilometers (16,000 miles) in 19 countries, including Canada, Spain, the UK, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Bahrain, India and Singapore. I also ended my trip to the United States in August with Australia.

Wise's father, Sahim Waiz Atghandiwal, who accompanied him on a visit to Kabul, said each girl needed parental support to help her family achieve her goals and dreams.

Waiz, who returned to Dubai, said she would continue her voyage to India to become the first Afghan American woman to perform a single flight around the world.

Since the Taliban withdrew from power 16 years ago, Afghan women have changed a lot. During their rule, women could not go to school or go to work, and were mainly confined to their homes. Millions of Afghan women are currently attending school and virtually nothing in 2001. Many women work for the government and security services, run their own businesses, and are elected to Parliament.
