First female pilot in Indian Navy

P8I Aircraft

Sub-Lieutenant Shivangi on Monday became the first women pilot in the Indian Navy as she joined operational duties at the naval base in Kerala's Kochi.

Shivangi, who had been undergoing training at the Southern Naval Command in Kochi, will get authorisation on 2 December to fly Dornier aircraft.

Shivangi was commissioned into the Indian Navy past year after initial training.

Shivangi is the first woman pilot of the Indian Navy. "Woman in the cockpit for the first time", Shivangi told reporters.

And I was just really touched that she had the courage to answer that question in a different way than she has spoken before. Warren, who appeared emotional, paused before responding, "Yeah". "Yeah", Warren said, pausing.

"It will create more opportunity for other women who want to join defence".

After earning her wings two days before the Navy Day on Wednesday, Shivangi said she was happy with her achievement.

Later, interacting with the media, she said she started dreaming of becoming a pilot ever since she saw a chopper carrying a minister landed in the neighbourhood of her grand parents' place in Bihar during her childhood. Satisfied with her observation, she climbs into the cockpit of the aircraft used by the Navy for general utility and surveillance operations before she fires up the instrument.

A batch of three trainee officers, including SLt Shivangi, on Monday qualified as Dornier pilots and were awarded the coveted golden "wings" at a simple ceremony held at INS Garuda.
