About us


Aviation for Aviators is an online platform that mainly aims to benefit, entertain and educate people about the aviation industry through various online networking platforms supported by our team.

Our Story

Aviation for Aviators (AFA) was formally established on the 29th of January 2019 as a social media page only on Instagram by its founder Youssef Yahya, then started evolving by launching 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, and will remain, more consistent in sharing what is useful and beneficial to their audience.

General Manager & Founder of Aviation for Aviators

Hello everyone! I’m Youssef Yahya, the founder of Aviation for Aviators. I’m an engineering student at Nile University in Egypt. I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. My passion for aviation can’t be described! I fell in love with this field since childhood, these times when I was used to watching “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 by how aircraft fly and the amazing mechanism of these birds!

Hi! I’m Ahmed, 24 years old, an engineer. Interested in aviation, traveling, and space exploration and its history. My passion for aviation started when I was 6 and rode my first airplane, (I still remember it to that day (an Airbus A300). And it has grown and evolved since then.

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 for 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 was fascinated by 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 countless 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.

Hi, I’m Sam and I have been an Avgeek since the age of four after I saw the cockpit of a SAS 737. Ever since I have been attached to planes and only started sharing my love of aviation when I started a small YouTube channel at the beginning of 2021. My favorite aviation manufacturer is Airbus because I like the way the planes look, especially the hooded cockpit window on the A350. I love to share my aviation knowledge by writing articles and I look forward to writing lots more in the future!

Tantawat Homhuan


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.

Facebook Account Editor

Hello! My name is Alina, I am 22 years old and I finished the English-French faculty. Even if my studies do not go in the direction of aviation, my passion for airplanes was born a long time ago, when my grandfather who worked at the Air Base 86th in Romania decided to introduce me to the world of aviation. Since then, every time I see or hear the glorious sound of a plane, my heart trembles.
