India's First Female Fighter Pilots Take to the Skies

This story is soaring, literally




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

Out of the six cadets who were competing to become fighter pilots, only three trainees qualified.

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.

The Indian government had announced its decision to induct  women for the fighter stream of the flying branch in the IAF, on experimental basis for five years. The awesome trio is getting trained as  part of this initiative.
