Bhawana Kanth becomes 1st Woman IAF Pilot to qualify for Combat Missions

Scripting history, Flight Lieutenant Bhawana Kanth on 22 May became the first woman pilot of the Indian Air Force (IAF) to qualify to undertake combat missions on a fighter jet.

She has completed operational syllabus for carrying out combat missions on Mig-21 Bison aircraft during day time.

She is from the first batch of women fighter pilots of the IAF.

Three women — Kanth, Avani Chaturvedi and Mohana Singh — were commissioned as flying officers in July 2016, less than a year after the government decided to open the fighter stream for women on an experimental basis.
