18th June will be a historical day not only for Indian Air Force but for the people of entire country, when 3 daughters of the country shall fly fighter aircraft for the first time in history of Indian Air Force.
Although 3 female pilots are engaged in flying transport aircrafts, but it was the decision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar that opened the doors of fighter aircrafts for females.
Avani Chaturvedi of Reewan, Bhawana Kanth of Begusaray of Bihar and Mohna Singh of Jhunjhunu cleared a very rigorous group of tests related to physical, mental and psychological condition in March 2016.
Out of the 3 females, Mohna Singh belongs to Jhunjhunu Rajasthan. She wanted to join Air Force right from Childhood since her father and grandfather have given their services to the esteemed Air Force. So Air Force was her first interest.
Awani Chaturvedi has completed her college studies from Jaipur. She has pursued engineering in computer science from Vanasthali Vidyapeeth. She always had a dream of flying like a bird but she couldn’t imagine that one fine day, her dream would come true.
So finally India is on the urge of creating an impact even in the books of World army as well since even US army doesn’t have females in infantry and armoured units.
