Narjes Mortezavi is the first female Iranian MD-80 planes mechanic who has the CAT C certificate to repair aircraft.
I have repaired numerous planes during the 8 years of my carrier. Mortezavi told FNA on Saturday.
She explained that the airline for which she works has 5 MD planes and an Airbus aircraft which have all been checked and repaired by her.
As far as I know. there is no female plane technician and mechanic in the country but me. Mortezavi said.
The successful woman underlined that despite having offers from other countries she is not interested in migration.
The McDonnell Douglas MD-80 is a series of twin-engine. short- to medium-range. single-aisle commercial jetliners.
It was lengthened and updated from the DC-9. This series can seat from 130 to 172 passengers depending on variant and seating configuration.
