India's First Female Fighter Pilots Take to the Skies

India's first women fighter pilots have been commissioned in the Indian Air Force today (yaaasss!), making major history.

Cadet Bhawna Kanth, Avani Chaturvedi and Morgana Singh have cleared their initial phase of training  (FYI, that requires about 150 hours of flying!)

As flying officers, these super women will undergo further training for 6 months on Hawk, advanced jet fighters.
