Naked Pilot: Reem al-Kuthairi
Bastienne Wentzel

"I am the first woman from Qatar to register and own a microlight aircraft. I am a sports coach from Doha, Qatar. Flying is my passion. I fly a weightshift microlight aircraft, a paramotor and a paraglider. I am learning to fly a fixed wing ultralight aircraft and I plan to obtain my gyrocopter licence."

"I was on the elite national handball team. I studied physical education and sports science. Now I work with the Aspetar sports medicine hospital which provides medical services for many top athletes in Qatar, including the FIFA World Cup next year."
