Avani Chaturvedi becomes first Indian

woman fighter pilot to fly solo

Countries, such as Britain, the United States, Israel, and Pakistan, have

allowed women in the role of fighter pilots

Flying Officer Avani Chaturvedi has created history by becoming the first Indian woman

fighter pilot to fly solo.

Chaturvedi flew a MiG-21 bison in her first training solo sortie, in Jamnagar, Gujarat.

She is one of the three in the first batch of female pilots, besides Bhawana Kanth and

Mohana Singh, who were inducted in Indian Air Force fighter squadron on June 18, 2016.

Speaking to ANI, Air Commodore Prashant Dixit said, "It is a unique achievement for

Indian Air Force and the country."

Only selected countries, such as Britain, the United States, Israel, and Pakistan, have

allowed women in the role of fighter pilots.

It was in October 2015 that the Government took the decision to open the fighter stream for

women.

Meanwhile, combat roles in the Army and the Navy are still off-limits for women, due to a

combination of operational concerns and logistical constraints.

On December 16, 2017 two women from the second batch to enter the fighter stream of the

Indian Air Force were commissioned after graduating from the Air Force Academy,

Dundigul.

It was only in 1992 that the armed forces began recruiting women to streams, other than the

Medical stream.
