Our Story

Aviation for Aviators (AFA) was formally established in the 29th of January 2019 as a social media page only on Instagram by it’s founder: Youssef Yehia, then started evolving by opening pages on different social media networking platforms such as; Facebook, Twitter & YouTube, by sharing the most recent aviation news, as well as sharing some educational posts. Then by the end of 2019 a website was created to begin in sharing more informative aviation topics. The Co-founders: Ahmed Detring & Farah Hossam had a big role in the establishment of the website’s content. With more members that later on joined AFA’s team, AFA became more consistent in sharing what’s useful to their audience.

Hello everyone! I’m Youssef Yehia, the founder of Aviation for Aviators. I’m Egyptian, born and raised in Saudi Arabia. My passion to aviation can’t be described! I fell in love with this field since childhood, these times when I was used to watch “Air Crash Investigation” on “National Geographic” every Tuesday night, this enthusiasm got and will always get evolved on each and every flight. My dream job since 10 was to live in the skies as a commercial pilot, this dream began when I was on an outbound flight operated by, the queen of the skies, a Boeing 747, I was just amazed with how aircraft flies and the amazing mechanism of these birds!!

Hoda Hamad

Editor-in-chief & the Editorial team manager

Hi! My name is Hoda Hamad and I’m a writer for Aviation for Aviators. I am a private pilot, pursuing my commercial pilot licence. I started writing because, as I am expanding my knowledge, I want to contribute to society by helping others learn more about the world of aviation with me. I spend my free time trying to develop new skills and know more about almost everything. My desire to inspire others to start flying lead me to push my brother into it, and it worked. Now I can’t wait to start sharing my world and hopefully inspire others as well.

I am an Aeronautical engineer and M.Sc in mechanical engineering and transportation. Living in Madrid. I Have joined in several projects ranging from successful flying drones to technical audits of airline aircraft. After finishing my internship in Venezuela, I took part in the same aeronautical maintenance and repair organization (MRO) with the planning department, where organized the maintenance tasks for airplanes and helicopters. While studying my master degree in Madrid I immediately joined an aeronautical consultancy in aircraft transitions for the audits of technical aircraft documentation.

Daniel Luo

Writer

Hello! My name is Daniel Luo, and I’m a 9th grader living in Atlanta, Georgia. I joined Aviation for Aviators in December 2020, and I am currently a writer from the company. Aside from writing articles, I am also a plane spotter based in Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International airport. You can find my photos on the page @atl_planespotter on instagram. My passion for aviation began at a very young age. I’ve always admired airplanes and fascinated over their beauty and technology. It’s amazing to see how something as gigantic and heavy as an airplane can actually fly. My passion for aviation developed when I was age 2. At that age, I flew my first flight on a Delta 777 from Atlanta to Shanghai. This flight cultivated my passion for aviation and inspired me to further pursue my love for aviation. Through my interest in aviation, I’ve met a countless number of people and made many new friends. I recently took the retirement flight of the Delta 777 this year in October and made several new friends with similar interests. I really enjoy things related to aviation and I hope to continue down this path in the future and become a pilot one day.

Tantawat Homhuan

Writer

Hi I’m Tantawat. I have been deeply interested in aviation since 6 years old after I met my mother’s friend who used to be a pilot for Bangkok Airways. He described a fatal plane crash he had been involved in 2009. After that I became fascinated by aviation and how metal tubes with wings stay in the air.

Edouard Chehab

Writer

Hello! My name is Edouard. I’m currently 24 years old and I live in Connecticut, here in the United States. I work on behalf of AFA as a writer to bring you the most relevant and exciting news that’s happening in the aviation industry! Everyone who knows me, knows how deep my passion for anything aviation-related is for me. It started when my father first bought me the earliest version of Microsoft Flight Simulator back in 2004. After some time, I was able to apply what I learned on the simulator and took a discovery flight out of my local airport. At that point, I had taken off and landed even before I knew how to drive a car! Over the years, my passion has driven me to gain so much knowledge that I am glad to be able to share it with our growing community here on AFA. See you in the skies!

I started drawing planes and I always said, that I want to become a pilot later as well. Now, I am not yet a pilot, but, however, a happy digital marketing employee. Additionally, planespotting is my hobby, so you can find me at the Zurich Airport catching some birds.
