The Royal Aero Sports Club of Jordan (RASCJ) Sponsors The Ninety-Nines (99’s) Trip to Jordan
RASCJ was one of the sponsors for the 99’s International Women Pilots recent meeting over the Jordanian skies. The 99’s is an international organization of women pilots that promotes advancement of aviation through education, scholarships and mutual support. The Arabian Section, currently consists of over 30 members and growing, and is set to mark their spot on the Arabian map as an empowered team.
The pilots enjoyed rides on the Ultra-Light Aircraft overlooking Aqaba’s sea and landscape. They also went on a magnificent ride on the Hot Air Balloon. Yvonne Trueman, a member of the 99’s said: “The take-off was so smooth. Soon we were drifting upwards and the beautiful Jordanian terrain wrapped below us. The working team on the ground was soon just specks on the sand.” Everyone who went on the ride stressed that it was an experience they recommend everyone tries.
RASCJ organizes Hot Air Balloon rides in Wadi Rum on a daily basis including weekends between the hours of 6 and 11 am. Also available at the club are different rides including Ultralight and Microlight. The Club is constantly driven and determined to support local communities in both Aqaba and Wadi Rum through attracting tourists with different exciting activities ranging from aero sports to camping retreats.
