Deputy Shivangi becomes the first female pilot of the Indian Navy
KOCHI: Shivangi became the first female pilot for Monday.
Shivangi was born in the city of Muzaffarpur in Bihar. She was commissioned in the Indian Navy last year after her initial training.
Shivangi joined operational tasks at the Kochi naval base today. The Indian Navy Dornier surveillance plane will fly.
I've been craving this for a long time: says the first female naval pilot in India, Lieutenant Shivangi
Lieutenant Shivangi expressed happiness for her feat saying that she had been craving it for a long time.
It is a feeling of pride for me, my parents and it is a different feeling. I've been craving this for a long time and finally, it's here, I can't express it ... it's a great feeling. I am looking forward to completing my third training stage, he said while talking to reporters after joining his operational duties at the Kochi naval base.
The women were always there in the Navy. They were not in the cockpit. The observers were there. This is something different ... the woman in the cockpit for the first time. It will create more opportunities for other women who want to join the Defense. .. maybe they will start looking for helicopters and fighters, he added.
In August, Wing Commander S became the first official woman in the country to become the flight commander of a flying unit.
Dhami assumed the position of flight commander of a Chetak helicopter unit at Hindon Air Base. The flight commander is the second in command of the unit, which means that she is number two in the unit after the commanding officer.
