Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth, and Mohana Singh are the first ever woman fighter pilots of India . Out of the three, Avani and Bhawana are all set to fly high the MiG-21 fighter plane. MiG-21's landing and take-off speed is about 340 Km/hour.
History was made on June 18, 2016, when Indian Air Force(IAF) launched the first batch of female pilots. Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh were finally included in IAF as Fighter Squadron. The trio has already undergone solo flying raids on aircrafts like Pilatus PC-7 turboprops, Kiran and Hawk jet trainers. They are now moving ahead with rigorous training for MiG-21 Type 69. Their training was conducted by Qualified Fighter Instructors(QFI). Avani is getting the training at the Suratgarh airbase, whereas Bhawana is being trained at the Ambala airbase. Mohana is currently posted at Kalaikunda airbase with Hawk advanced jet trainers.
Females today walk parallel to men in every field except at war fronts. But it does not seem that such a situation will stay for too long. The first ever female in the world to become a fighter pilot was Jeannie Marie Leavitt from the U.S.A., in the year 1993. Since then, the wings of change are spreading and now even in the Indian battlefronts, female fighter pilots will soon be taking charge!
