Alpha Aviation Graduate Talks the Spirit of Amelia Earhart to HuffPost

It’s glaringly obvious that Alpha Aviation graduate and First Officer with Air Arabia, Ghada al Rousi is proud to be a woman in aviation. Her recent blog on HuffPost talked of the legacy of Amelia Earhart, whose life was touched by genius, inspiration, adventure and tragedy.
