Since the age of 10, Amr had demonstrated great passion for aviation. He joined Air Scouts in 2001 where he participated in many scouting and aviation activities. By the age of 14, he self-trained himself flying through the use of home flight simulators, reading and networking with professional pilots. Upon his move to Canada, he has held many part and full time internship roles to fund his education and flight training. In 2016, he graduated from Concordia University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering as well as completing his Commercial Pilot Training.
As a Rockwell Collins Program Supervisor by day, Amr now manages Bombardier Business Aircrafts Certification and Airworthiness projects. He oversees interesting projects involving modifications on new and in-service business aircrafts. By evening, he teaches ground courses such as the Private Pilot License Course at Stratos Aviation.
Passionate about promoting careers in aviation, Amr has volunteered in many events organized by Wings Magazine, Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA), Air cadets and other non-profit organizations. His young and energetic personality benefits him greatly in motivating others to pursue careers in aviation whether in the cockpit or on the ground!
