Jordan's royals are no strangers to headlining impressive feats. This week it was Princess Salma Bin Abdullah's turn to make a history-making achievement.
The third child of the Hashemite Kingdom's King Abdullah II and Queen Rania became the first Jordanian woman to complete preliminary pilot training on fixed-wing aircraft.
The accomplishment was announced by the Royal Hashemite Court on Twitter in a post featuring images of her receiving wing credentials during a ceremony held in Amman's Al Husseiniya Palace. The princess was handed the honors by her father, who's also the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces.
The king pinned a ceremonial badge on Princess Salma's uniform during the official function, which was attended by Queen Rania and Salma's brother Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II.
Princess Salma's completion of the training comes after her graduation from Britain's prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in November 2018. She is the third of her immediate family to undertake a Short Commissioning Course at the world-famous institution. Both her father and brother also attended courses there.
Jordan's crown prince expressed his pride in his sister's latest achievement in an Instagram post captioned, "Brilliant and hard-working as always! Congrats on receiving your wings and here's to more success and achievements."
The royal isn't the first woman related to Jordan's monarchy to attend the military academy as her aunt Princess Aisha bint Hussein was the first Middle Eastern woman to do so, having graduated back in 1987.
It remains unclear whether the princess is set to take on official military responsibilities following her awarding of the wings.
Nevertheless, people are pretty excited to see her make strides as she follows in her father's footsteps and they made sure to express that on social media.
