Air Peace decorates first female captain
Sinmisola Ajibola, a pilot, has become the first female captain to be decorated by Air Peace airlines.
Sinmisola, who joined Air Peace in February 2017 as a Senior First Officer (SFO), made history as the airline’s first female captain. She is from a family of pilots – father and four brothers, three of whom are with Air Peace.
Presenting the new captain to the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, for decoration, the Chief Pilot, Capt. Victor Egonu, said he predicted Sinmisola’s elevation on the first flight the latter did with him.
Decorating Sinmisola with her captain epaulettes at Air Peace Corporate Headquarters in Lagos, Onyema said he was proud of her achievement.
He urged the new captain to sustain her outstanding performance in and out of the cockpit.
He praised the airline’s pilots and their other Nigerian colleagues for displaying excellence in the cockpit as well as standing tall among their counterparts across the globe.
Onyema said that Air Peace caused a revolution in the nation’s aviation industry in the area of pilots’ benefits. Air Peace currently has eight female pilots in its employ.
