Proud moment! IAF inducts first batch of women fighter pilots
Marking a proud moment in the Indian history, the Indian Air Force has inducted first batch of women pilots in the fighter pilot roles.As per reports, the first women batch includes three fighter pilots –Avani Chaturvedi, Mohana Singh, and Bhawana Kanth.Report added that the Central Defence Minister, Manohar Parrikar, has officially commissioned these offices in a graduation parade at Dundigal Air Force Academy.With this appointment, the concerned authorities have successfully obliterated virtual gender-discrimination practised by the IAF.It is learned that the three fighter cadets will be given advanced training in intensive combat and armament firing in the coming years.Currently, the IAF has around ninety-four women pilots working in the helicopters and transport aircrafts.This is the first time our country is using the strength of our female officers in the complicated fighter roles.Even now, our army and navy forces are showing extreme ignorance in using the women fighters in major fighter fronts.
National Medias reported that the three women fighter pilots has successfully cleared their first round of training, and are moving into the advance training level.Earlier, the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, had reportedly assured that our country will ensure women’s participation in all military combat roles in near future.It seems that we have proudly stepped into the initial stage of our ambitious dream; but we still have miles to go before firmly marching towards the dream.
