Meet country's first women fighter pilots

Leave a Comment

Meet country's first women fighter pilots


History was scripted on Saturday when Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar formally commissioned three women fighter pilots of the Indian Air Force at a combined graduation parade at the Air Force Academy in Dundigal. Flight cadets Avani Chaturvedi of Madhya Pradesh, Mohana Singh of Rajasthan and Bhawana Kanth of Bihar, all in their early-20s, usher in a new chapter for the Indian defence forces, which have for long opposed the induction of women in combat roles.

Here's a brief profile of the three lady officers:

Avani Chaturvedi:- Avani was born in Madhya Pradesh's Satna district. She did her schooling from a small town named Deolond, near Rewa. She joined the IAF after completing her BTech in Computer Science from Banasthali University, Jaipur. Her father is an executive engineer working for the state government. Her mother is a home maker. "My dream is to become a good fighter pilot on whom seniors can always rely when it comes to flying for live operations. I want to fly the best fighter aircraft and learn more and more each day," she says.She was inspired by her brother who is in the Army and said she always wanted to conquer the skies and hence joined the Flying Club in her college.


Bhawana Kanth:-A native of a remote village in Bihar's Darbhanga district, 24-year-old Bhawana Kanth has made the state proud by becoming one of three first women fighter stream pilots in India's history. After completing her secondary education from Vidya mandir, Kota, she joined BMS engineering college, Bangalore for doing BTech in medical electronics. After BTech, she joined air force service commission.She is a daughter of an officer in the Indian Oil Corporation, dreamt of flying planes from her childhood days and opted for the fighter stream after her Stage I training.



Mohana Singh:-Mohana is from Jhunjunu, Rajasthan. Her father is in the IAF and her mother is a teacher. She completed her schooling from Air Force School, New Delhi and did her BTech (Electronics & Amp Comm) from GIMET, Amritsar. Her grandfather who was a Flight Gunner in the Aviation Research Centre and father who is a Warrant Officer in the IAF and is all excited to continue the family legacy of working in the armed forces.. 






The achievement of the three is a significant milestone for the Indian military, as this is the first time it has permitted women into combat roles.
 Last October, the government decided to open the fighter stream for women on an experimental basis for five years. But combat roles in the Army and the Navy are still off limits due to a combination of operational concerns and logistical constraints.
The three will begin advanced training on advanced jet trainer Hawks. It will take another 145 hours on the Hawks for almost a year before they would actually get into the cockpit of a supersonic fighter.
“This is just the beginning. Slowly, women in large numbers will be part of the armed forces,” Parrikar Said.
