I started my career in the aviation field upon achieving my Bachelor's degree in Aeronautical
Within my career spans of over four decades from October 1978 to date, I gained my professional
qualifications as an AMEL (Aircraft Maintenance Engineer's License) with Type ratings on B727, B737,

I have built extensive experience throughout my professional journey, enabling me to comprehend
the practical part of the aircraft life cycle, maintenance, leasing business, fleet strategic planning,
safety & risk management, and EU / EASA regulations.
I have held executive roles, including Director of Maintenance and Engineering at Yemen Airways,

operational efficiency and excellence. I am now with Fly Yemen Airlines as a Consultant and Fleet

negotiation of contracts with OEMs, vendors, and MROs, with the oversight of over 33 aircraft
deliveries, redeliveries, and acceptances.
