"You don't need to be super talented to fly an aircraft, but you need to work really hard and stay focused", she says. She will be flying the Dornier surveillance aircraft of the Indian Navy.

There are additionally two different ladies who're set to develop into navy pilots on December 21.

Sub Lt Shivangi, 24, has made history - she is the first woman pilot of the Indian Navy.


"It is a big responsibility and I am trying to live up to it". "I am looking forward to complete my third stage of training", she said while speaking to reporters after joining her operational duties at Kochi naval base. A successful completion of the training paved the way for her to undergo the Dornier conversion course in Kochi. "Maybe now it will have better visibility", she says.

"I have got vast support from all my seniors and colleagues", she mentioned. But this is the first time a woman officer will fly a plane. After being cautioned by the Indian Navy, the Chinese Shi Yan 1 vessel left Indian waters and moved to its other destination probably towards China, the sources said.

And since July 1992, women have been able to take up various additional roles within the navy, including in air traffic control, education and training, in the meteorological branch, law, logistics and in observer units. They were not in the cockpit.

"It's now that the glass ceiling has been broken in so far as getting into the naval cockpit is concerned", he added.

"You already know each time any person is doing one thing for the primary time there may be quite a lot of stress, there may be quite a lot of expectation so clearly the stress will probably be there", she stated.
