Michaellla Vandetta Bio, the daughter of Sierra Leone’s president, Julius Maada Bio, has emerged as the first female pilot in the country. 

Michaellla reportedly holds a private Pilot License for different engines and she is awaiting her first Commercial Pilot License.

It’s no secret that commercial airline pilots are predominantly white and male and with factors like industry growth and the predicted shortages. Aspiring women pilots were challenged by costs and prejudice evident in flight training schools.

Michallea is said to be changing the narrative as she emerges as the female Pilot from Sierra Leone.
