Three Women Fighter Pilots of Indian Air Force are all set to Fly MIG-21-Bisons!
Remember The First 3 Women Fighter Pilots Of Indian Air Force? They're All Set To Fly Mig-21 Bisons!
Last year in June, the Indian Air Force Academy added stars to its glorious history by commissioning its first batch of women fighter pilots.
Flight cadets Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh were formally commissioned by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar at a combined graduation parade at the Air Force Academy in Dundigal.
And even though it was quite obvious that these women will touch great heights, with great elation we tell you that these women are all set to fly MIG-21 Bisons jets from November.
The three women pilots will fly military jets after completing a strenuous training programme within three weeks. "The present consideration is to put them to MiG 21 Bison squadron. Our opinion is that it will sharpen their skills as the aircraft has more manual features than other sophisticated aircraft," Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa said today, reports PTI.
They will initially kick-start their journey with MIG-21 Bisons and later venture into flying other jets.
