WIZO is bursting with pride to announce that three of our graduates from our Nahalal School, sponsored by WIZO UK and by Canadian Hadassah WIZO, recently graduated from the elite Israeli Airforce Pilots course. This exciting news made the widely read Yediot Aharonot, one of the country’s most popular daily papers.

This is no easy feat, those who are chosen to participate go through a difficult selection process and an even more grueling training process, to prove that they have the “right stuff”.

We firmly believe that it was in our Nahalal school where these future pilots were taught confidence, given love and wings to fly. Their success is testament to WIZO’s policy of nurturing and investing in our children and ensuring that they get the best possible tools they need to succeed once they graduate.

We wish our new pilots every success for a glowing future!
