MEA mourns death of first ever Lebanese pilot Captain Saadeddine Dabbous

Middle East Airlines mourned the death of the first ever Lebanese pilot Captain Saadeddine Ahmad Dabbous, who passed away on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, after a 40-year journey with the airlines.

 

Dabbous joined the Middle East back in 1947 as an accountant. Two years into the job, he decided to apply for a pilot training session. He passed the medical tests and the first round and then was transferred by MEA to Cairo for a year and a half to complete his training. After graduating on top of his class, he traveled to London for another 6-month training period. In 1952, Saad became officially the first Lebanese MEA pilot and flew his first flight on board a Dakota DC3 plane from Cairo to Beirut.
