My Responsibilities
As a flight instructor, I focus on making sure you feel safe and have fun while learning to achieve your aviation dreams.

My Bio
I’m originally from Cairo, Egypt, my family and I moved to Tennessee in 2016, embarking on a new chapter in our lives. At the age of 20, I discovered my love for flying and began my flight training journey. Achieving my private pilot license was just the beginning. After my private pilot license I decided to continue my training with Wings of Eagles. In January 2023, I commenced my training at Wings of Eagles and successfully obtained my instrument, Commercial, CFI, and CFII ratings. Each milestone achieved fuels my dedication to pursuing excellence in aviation. I look forward to the adventures that await in the skies ahead!

My Hobbies
I enjoy playing soccer.

My Favorite Thing About Wings
I absolutely adore everything about Wings from the amazing fleet of aircraft to the incredible staff. They played a crucial role in helping me achieve my aviation goals, and I couldn’t be more grateful for their support and guidance.

My Motto
You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough.

My Message to You
If you’re aiming to become a private pilot or setting your sights on flying for an airline, remember that learning to fly takes dedication and patience. Don’t worry if you don’t get a maneuver right the first, second, or even the fifth time; it’s normal to require multiple attempts to master it. Just keep practicing and stay determined to reach your goals.
