Air Zimbabwe Makes History With Their First-Ever All-Female Flight Crew

Air Zimbabwe made history in the aviation world by having their first-ever all-female flight crew last week.

Captain Chipo M. Matimba and Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros, the now historic women, flew a Boeing 737 from the country’s capital of Harare to Victoria Falls. This wasn’t the first time two females piloted a commercial plane, however. In 1984, Captain Emily H. Warner and First Officer Barbara Cook flew a Frontier airlines flight from Denver to Lexington, Kentucky.

Nonetheless, Captains Matimba and Petros have much to celebrate with this amazing accomplishment, and after the safe landing, both pilots shared their deserving excitement on Facebook:

Captain Matimba: “History has been made! First all-female flight deck crew on the Air Zimbabwe Boeing 737! Two captains! Absolute pleasure Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros! #FLYBABES. #PaintingTheSkyPink! ”

Captain Petros: “Air Zim First:- All Women 737 Flight Deck Crew!!!! Flt to Vic Falls This Morning. Was A pleasure Skipper Chipo Matimba!!!!!! ”
While Captains Petros and Matimba made history for Air Zimbabwe, this isn’t the first time two women have flown a commercial plane, according to #CondeNast Traveler.

Congratulations to Captain Matimba, Captain Petros and Air Zimbabwe for this historic moment!
