Fareeha Ahmed

Imagine staring out the window of a massive Airbus A380 as a child, filled with wonder at the sight of such a colossal machine defying gravity and soaring effortlessly through the sky. For Fareeha Ahmed, that moment ignited a passion that would shape her future in ways she couldn't yet imagine.

Fareeha's journey to the cockpit of a Boeing 737 for a European airline based in the UK is a testament to her unwavering determination and resilience in the face of challenges. From navigating the complexities of Brexit and the global pandemic to pursuing advanced education in International Aviation Law and Regulation, Fareeha's path to becoming a commercial pilot was anything but ordinary.

Choosing the modular training route, Fareeha embarked on a transformative educational journey, starting with a BSc (Hons) in Air Transport with Commercial Pilot Training at Buckinghamshire New University. This decision not only provided her with invaluable insights into the aviation industry but also laid the foundation for her professional and academic development.

Despite the disruptions caused by Brexit and the pandemic, Fareeha remained steadfast in her pursuit of her dreams. Postponing her training temporarily, she seized the opportunity to deepen her understanding of the aviation industry through a Master’s degree, preparing herself for the challenges that lay ahead.

Throughout her training, Fareeha found inspiration and support in the friendships she forged and the mentors who pushed her to excel. From her first solo flight during PPL training to the exhilarating experience of mastering the Boeing 737 during base training, every milestone was a testament to her hard work and dedication.

Now, as Fareeha takes to the skies as a commercial pilot, she embarks on a new chapter filled with excitement and opportunity. And as she joins The Flyer Watch Company as a Brand Ambassador, she continues to inspire aspiring aviators around the world to reach for the stars.

Fareeha advocates for flying scholarships, backed by companies like The Flyer Watch Company, as transformative opportunities for those whose dreams feel out of reach. These scholarships, facilitated by organisations such as The Air League and the Honourable Company of Air Pilots, offer indispensable support to aspiring pilots, enabling them to surmount financial obstacles and chase their aspirations in aviation.
